Thursday was Book Signing Day at ModernBook Gallery. 

A frenetic couple of weeks leading up to it. I hand-made about seventy takeaway cards. An intense and anxious drive to San Francisco on Thursday … traffic at a crawl most of the way. Late arrival. But then — A wonderful time! So many people came by, looked, made positive comments. Friends stopped in. People bought books! 

Early in the event, I handed my camera to my partner and told him to shoot the event. And be sure to get a picture of each and every person offering a book with their books. I wasn’t going to be able to do it. I’ve watched this over and over again … 

Today is packaging day. Between pre-orders and sales at and after the event, only two of the thirty-six books I stocked up on are left. I’m almost done packaging … next I’ve got to do the postage. One job at a time … but I think I’ll head out for a little respite and dinner. 

New work, new ideas, are calling me. I’ve started on the next book.
