I don’t often do book signings. Mainly because I get as nervous s a long-tailed cat in a room full of rocking chairs 🙂 So you can imagine how nervous I felt leading up to my book signing yesterday.
Nerves – public appearances. For a moment I had the image of my first public appearance as an author. It was 2009, in Samara, Russia. When I gave a talk to a room full of students. Needless to say, that first time bombed in an epic way, and that one though came back to haunt me yesterday. 😦
Thankfully, those nerves hit the highway after a good friend gave me a pep talk, and away I went 🙂
The signing in itself was pretty cool. Joining me was the antagonist of The Chosen Series, Jamiesonn (played by Scott Reid), the ASJ Publishing street team (Zara and Rochelle), and fellow author Danielle M. Maistry.
What an awesome weekend!
Danielle’s book signing at Dymocks Watergardens was a success. Check out the photos below!
So many thanks to the owner and staff at Dymocks for all their help.
