This past week I was pleased to get to attend a booksigning at my local Christian Bookstore, Christian Book & Gift in Rochester. Four women from Bethany House Publishers were signing their historical fiction.
Nancy Moser (who couldn't attend because she got ill, though she did send signed bookplates)
Stephanie Grace Whitsun
and Kim Vogel Sawyer.
I was so happy there was a good turnout for these fine ladies. And everyone seemed to be having a good time.
I purchased A Promise of Spring by Kim Sawyer. It was so nice to see Kim again, to talk about Kansas a little, to hear some of her exciting good news, and to get my book signed. When I read the back cover copy of A Promise of Spring, I KNEW I would love it. Kim has such a gentle, touch with her historical romances. She always delivers an enjoyable, thought-provoking read.
I couldn't help but daydream a little bit about how it might be to sign my own books at Christian Book & Gift. I think the way these ladies handled it was great. Several authors who all write historicals, well advertised with a post-card mailing in advance, posters, etc. Fresh flowers on the tables, lots of books on hand, helpful, attentive staff. It was just so nice, I can only hope if I get the opportunity to sign books at CB&G, that it will go as well.
