Booksigning in Cheyenne


Cheyenne, WY is known for Cheyenne Frontier Days
 Yep, it's late, but I wanted to share my booksigning with you. I drove up to Cheyenne, WY on June 4 and spent the day with Amanda Cabot and Penny Zeller signing books at two bookstores. Amanda and I have been friends for a while having first met at our RWA chapter, Colorado Romance Writers, years ago. Most recently though, Amanda leads Front Range Christian Fiction Writers, a group of Christian writers writing various works as the Lord puts on our hearts. Nice mix of folks.

I had the pleasure of meeting Penny at our first booksigning. Wonderful, warm, friendly -- I'm blessed to call her friend. Penny and her family had this booksigning thing down pat -- each member of the family had a specific duty whether arranging books, setting up the computer slide show, or just being cute and attracting customers. LOL! What a fun group!

First stop, Cornerstone Christian Supply. What an amazing, warm reception we received from staff and customers alike. Trisha and her staff set this trio of authors up right next to the register area, no one could miss us. The patrons stopped and chatted, asked about our books, and grabbed butterscotch buttons and chocolates as they investigated their book choices. It was a blast!

Next, we went to the Barnes and Noble store. Again we received a warm welcome including beautiful posters arrranged around the store announcing our event. A constant stream of chatter across the PA system reminded customers to stop by our table and meet the authors. What fun! We talked with fans, discussed the market with aspiring authors, and in general chit-chatted our way through the afternoon.

We even sold books!

At the end of the day, I drove the hour and a half home with a smile on my face. The generosity of readers continues to astound me. Folks just opened up and treated us kindness and support.




Here's to you, Cheyenne, Wyoming! You sure know how to make a girl feel welcome!
