Friday, January 10, 2020 I had the pleasure of attending the Author’s Night at Stella’s Art Gallery. I had no idea what to expect but it turned out to be one of the best book selling/signing events that I’ve been to. The place was packed and it was so much fun talking to people who like to read (most of those I asked prefer actual books over ebooks – yeah). “Bula Bridge” generated a lot of fun discussion about Ashtabula and the Railroad Disaster because there were a lot of people from the area familiar with that tragedy. I sold enough books to make a profit (hardly ever happens at these things for me) and handed out nearly 80 bookmarks. A highlight for me was when I handed a young woman one of the bookmarks, she looked at it, pointed to the “War Party” cover and said, I know that book. I just put it away at the library where I work. Another highlight was meeting and having a nice discussion with a fellow fantasy writer. All in all, it was well worth going. I hope I hear back from some of the people who bought books.
