Author Sleepover Party

Last weekend was a lot of fun! The "Mystery Through the Ages" panel had two signings in southern Colorado in Pueblo on Saturday and in Colorado Springs on Sunday. Since my co-panelists Mike Befeler, Linda Berry, and Pat Stoltey all live in northern Colorado, I invited them to spend the night at my house between the two events. After the event at the Pueblo Barnes & Noble store, we drank the wines that Linda and Pat brought while chatting on my deck, ate a Chinese take-out dinner, then watched L.A. Confidential on my big-screen TV. Sunday morning, we ate a blueberry pancake breakfast then took a stroll through the Garden of the Gods park before heading to the Southgate shopping mall for lunch and our signing at the Borders store. The highlight was spotting some bighorn sheep in the Garden of the Gods.

The signings weren't terrific, just a few sales for each of us, but we enjoyed talking to customers and left signed stock on the shelves at both stores. And, we had a great time bonding with each other, discussing this funny business of writing and promoting books.
