It’s been a week since Book Bonanza and I still haven’t caught up on sleep or life.
I’m sure anyone who wasn’t able to attend is sick of seeing photos – so I combined the rest of mine together. 😉
In retrospect, I should have worn a loose feminine blouse (blouse, what an odd word) as opposed to an unflattering t-shirt since I took an iCloud worth of pictures.
Also, I promise I don’t usually look so “dragged through a hedge backward” normally.
I had averaged only 4 hours of sleep/night for 2 weeks leading up to it, I stood outside in the signing line in the hot sun resulting in sweat-soaked hair and with Colorado’s lack of humidity, my skin resembled a raisin which only made my under eye bags darker.
The first hour of each of the 3 signings was like Black Friday shopping – except with manners.
My toes were run over with carts full of books or I was backed into by other readers, but we were all so happy to be in a room with our favorite authors, we just apologized, excused each other and smiled the entire time.
I was practically running from author to author like I was a contestant on a timed game show.
Luckily for one of you, my sweaty & frazzled strategy resulted in a TON of signatures from 80+ authors on a Dirty Blonde Books canvas tote bag (Photo in comments).
It’ll be the prize in a giveaway soon
I also have some signed paperbacks, autographed photos & swag and an autographed bag with an autographed poster of Preppy from TM Frazier to giveaway, as well.
