I love a night up close and personal with like-minded people. A night of discussion trading perspectives and sharing experiences, what could be better?
Nervous as hell, were the words that described my state as I walked towards the front door of the establishment hosting my book signing event. I really didn’t know what to expect as I passed on the organisatioal duties to a small PR company. I knew one thing, I didn’t expect to see any of my family or frinds their because I didn’t invte them for this event.
Ok time to man-up and enter into the hall. As I did I felt like Obama, all eyes were on me. Their glowing smiles must have totally disarmed me as I walked towards them I felt at home, amongst like-minded and suportive people that only wanted to see me succeed. Within 5 minutes of entering the room I didnt want the evening to end, it was an experience.
All in all I must have signed 200 books, personally spoke to 50 individuals and made a short address. Wow! is all I could say as the last of the crowd exited towards the end of the night. Looking back I giggled and thought “what was all the nerves about?”. Great night and great people, I can and will do this again!
