Tonight I sold a copy of METAL MAN WALKING to one person and its companion novel, ANNIE DREAMING to another.
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.
I have a book signing scheduled for Saturday, September 22nd between 9 and 11 a.m. at A VERY LITTLE BOOKSTORE located at 112 South Main Street in downtown Summerville, South Carolina.
If you are in the area, come on out and buy a signed copy of my book, METAL MAN WALKING.
