Of Book Signings and Grand Openings

Hey, guys!

If you've been following me on Twitter or here on the blog these last few months, you'll have noticed that I've been a bit... distracted lately.

Much of the last 90 days has been spent planning, organizing, and setting up a new gift shop and boutique here in my hometown of Tampa, Florida. (Not so great for the writing schedule, but a wonderful, much needed source of new income, nonetheless. One day I'll make enough to cover all of my expenses through my writing—until then, the day job beckons!)

We finally opened our doors a couple of weeks ago, and now we're gearing up for our official Grand Opening Celebration on Saturday, September 13th!

We've been selling my novels here in the store, and I've already promised a handful of our customers that I will be in attendance on the day of our Grand Opening, and that I'll be available to sign books and chat with readers.

Once I realized that the book signing would be one of the features of the event (along with some great giveaways, samples of our gourmet food and teas, and discounts throughout the store), I decided to go ahead and advertise it here on the blog.

SO! For those of you that will be in or around the Tampa Bay area on Saturday, September 13th, I will be at the Willow Veranda gift shop and boutique from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m., signing books for anyone that might be interested!

Here's a link to the Willow Veranda Grand Opening event page on Facebook, in case you'd like more details (our address, event hours, etc.).

Hope to see a few of you there! :)
