On Saturday, April 12, 2014, Barnes & Noble Bookstore in Cedar Rapids hosted an Author Day Book Signing Event. I gratefully attended this as a featured author along with thirteen other awesome authors. What a wonderful experience!
I met some incredible people – some authors and attendees! I enjoyed sharing ideas and information about the author profession as well as visitors’ interests in books and the authoring process. Amanda, the Activity Director, attended to our needs. Her arrangement of the authors suited everyone who presented and attended.
I sat at a table next to an incredibly talented young author. Michael Helgens’s science fiction books were amazing. He works for Fun and Games Productions so his book trailers he displayed captured visitors’ attention as they walked from one table to the next. Michael Helgen is someone to watch in the world of authors!
Other authors presented their books on finance, business, Iowa History, romance, the underground ministries of Muslims converting to Christianity, and more! What a privilege for me – a featured author among such a group of professional writers!
Thanks to all who visited me and either spoke with me, or bought my book. A special shout-out to Tricia O’Dell who came. Tricia was one of three BookStub winners (a free E-Book) as you can see in one of the pictures below.
Our friends, Debbie and Kevin Brubaker hosted my hubby and I that weekend. They treated us like royalty from treats in our bedroom and outstanding meals! Thanks so much for their love and friendship! After the book signing event, we went to my favorite restaurant – Red Lobster – with Michael Helgens and some of the attendees. This was a perfect ending of a wonderful day! Thanks to all who support and encourage my author career!
