Two Great Signings at Two Great Colorado Independent Book Stores



The first photo is of me with Jolanta Weber, owner of Weber's Books & Drawings on Main Street in Breckenridge, CO. It was taken at the conclusion of a very successful July 4th signing that I held there in the afternoon after the parade, and as you can see, very few books are left. We sold out of the store's stock of To Hell in a Handbasket, and I had to consign some more copies to the store. Jolanta bought an ad in the Summit Daily News and provided cookies and lemonade for customers. Thanks, Jolanta!

The second photo is of me with fellow mystery author Robert Spiller and our book store hostess, Beth Anne Steckiel, owner of Beth Anne's Book Corner in Colorado Springs. Beth Anne hosted a joint signing by Bob and me today and served cookies and brownie bites to her customers. A lot of folks stopped by, some to buy books and some to visit and provide support. Both kinds of visitors were most welcome and appreciated. All three of us consider the event to have been a success and a lovely way to spend a hot summer afternoon inside with the AC blowing!

Glad you found some good independents - they are becoming few & far between on the East Coast.

Good work, Beth!

My wife and I spent time in Breckenridge in June. It's one of the prettiest towns we saw in our month of travels.
