I spent Memorial Day afternoon with Ryan and Angie at Quincy Books and Toys in Quincy, Illinois. Things started out rather gloomy since when I got there I couldn’t tell from out in the parking lot whether the bookstore was even open. It was, though other than Angie, who works there, the store was empty. Ryan showed up shortly thereafter and we had a running discussion the rest of the afternoon as customers drifted in and out. We talked about writing, book selling, and a number of other subjects. Meanwhile, I greeted readers as they came in and twisted arms until they took one of my bookmarks even if they had no interest in genre that I write. All in all it was a fun afternoon, sold a few books, met some nice people, and handed out a stack of bookmarks. If you are in the area you should get to know Ryan, Quincy Books and if you write, the Hannibal Writers Guild. Here are photos of me with my books on display and one of me with Ryan and Angie. Thanks to them both.
