Know how “all things work together for good for those who love the Lord and are called according to His purpose?” Well, that was my day.
I got up in plenty of time, showered, dressed, drove to A VERY LITTLE BOOKSTORE for my book signing ( with my 3 – yes, only 3! – copies of METAL MAN WALKING in a cardboard box ). Arrived to find the doors locked and a sign in the window: “Sorry but we’re closed”.
Walked down to SINGLE SMILE CAFE, ordered coffee, waited a while, walked back to the bookstore. Still closed. Got my computer which I’d decided to bring along “just in case.”
Fooled around with ANNIE DREAMING re-write, edit. Drank my coffee. At 10 a.m. when the bookstore usually opens, walked back down, found it still closed. Then the owner’s husband with key in hand opens the door. I introduced myself, say I have a book signing scheduled for today, and he says, “Well, okay.”
I set up shop at a kiddie table – after all, this is a children’s bookstore.
The owner comes in a few minutes later, sets me up at a nice metal table with a wonderful stool-chair to boot. Within the two hours I’m there, I sell 2 copies! I’m thrilled. After all, I only had 3 with me.
God is mighty good, you know.
