The Writer's Block Book Store was a great place to hold professional Author meet and greets with fans. It got a little crowded at times, but that meant that we had a full house of visitors popping in to support our Local Author Showcase. Overall, it was a wonderful time. All of us Authors had a successful day and we received news that it was the largest success yet for the stores monthly Local Author Showcase. One author Alba Arango had to send family to fetch more books as she ran out so fast. Huge sales. It was fun to meet the other authors and see how they put together their tables etc. I am still learning and enjoying the lessons from the seasoned writer's who have been doing this a while.
Weeks before the big day I got so nervous just thinking about what this day would be like. I worried about everything that could possibly go wrong. Worst thought was that absolutely no one would show up at all. Thankfully, I was wrong. Many friends, family and friends of the family's and Baja Brody fans showed up and took pictures with us and purchased signed copies. It's a really neat feeling. I had a dream to be a published author for years and with a lot of dedication those dreams are coming true.
I am extremely thankful for Ralph Thomas, my incredible Illustrator. Without him, the book would not be what it is. He saw my vision and never complained when I wanted to change something. He was so easy to work with and always so kind and professional. His talents far exceed mine yet he made me feel good about every decision.
I am thankful to Andres Fragoso Jr.
I will be looking forward to many more moments like these involving Baja Brody and all of his new adventures.
