The complete title for this post is actually Random Thoughts of a Romance Writer at a Book Festival and I collected them during my latest stint at a local Indie Book Festival. Not my first rodeo but same outcome, lol. The only thing that has changed is my attitude. I no longer feel depressed after an event, deciding to laugh about it instead.
Note to self: bring a fan next time. This is fall in the South. Holy crap, it’s hot!
Did I bring enough books? Did I bring too many books? OMG, am I going to sell ANY books?
My banner is crooked. I am not going to look at it. I am not going to look at it.
My table display looks too cheesy. My table display doesn’t look cheesy enough.
The porta-potties smell like crap. Can’t wait to see how they smell after a couple hours in the sun.
This dragon pen I’m writing with is so freaking cool. OMG, I’m such a geek!
Forgot the sunscreen. Where in heaven’s name if fall weather?
Coffee! Yes, yes, yes. God is good, there is a coffee stand.
Please, stop by my table, please, please…shit! Walked right on by.
One hour in, zero interaction… Do I smell bad?
Will I get to use my new Square? I want to play with it.
Look at it from the bright side: I’m getting a lot of vitamin d today.
OMG, I’m so hot. And not in a good way.
Yes, someone has actually signed up for my newsletter. Score!
Great informal romance panel. Made me feel better.
Awesome meeting other authors. Lots of romance writers. Represent!
What a cute little guy. I wonder if he would like one of my books when he grows up? Oh,no, he’s trying to eat my book.
I sold two books. I sold two books.
I was told my display looks very professional. Proud little moment.
Why are my book earrings always a lot more popular than my books?
I have no moisture left in my body. I think I may be slowly mummifying.
Aahhh…air conditioning. Another rodeo done!
