Today, it was time to head back south. Had to catch a shot of Traverse Bay (an arm of Lake Michigan). Looks great in the sun. But cold here. Really cold.
This afternoon I had a book signing at Bookbrokers and Kramer's Cafe in the Grand Traverse Mall, Traverse City. You can see my poster near the middle.
They have Michigan authors in to do this almost every Saturday. Here I am waiting to greet people and sell books.
I signed up for this opportunity immediately after hearing about it just over two weeks ago, but I think it might be the beginning of a really significant relationship. The owner, Dan "Doc" McDougall, is really supportive of Michigan authors. He is displaying my books in a way that people might actually be interested in buying them. He's full of ideas to support and attract local authors. We are already cooking up something for this summer.
And, I found a very cool book that I bought as a research item for future books in the Dubois Files series. They sell primarily used books, which are discounted. Current Michigan authors' books are full price, of course. I think my "find" was great. Maybe I'll share about it another day.
Also, PS, I bought a sandwich there for dinner. WAY better than the food court stuff and no more expensive. Recommended.
