Hey y’all, this morning’s book signing/discussion for Sue Ellen’s Girl Ain’t Fat, She Just Weighs Heavy at the Lincoln Parish Library in Ruston, LA exceeded my expectations! As my author friends know full well, we NEVER know what to expect from these types of events. Sometimes, the most you can expect in the way of a crowd (unless you’re John Grisham) is two or three people (and that’s IF you brought your mama, BFF, or other traveling partner.) I have often joked about putting a “Don’t feed the author” poster on the book signing table . We do tend to look like lonely exhibits at the zoo!
See that mic stand right there, I may have grabbed it and hammed it up a little– or a lot…which I suppose might begin to explain the last two pics. I realize it looks like a very special revival service, but it’s really not. After I told the crowd about my growing Czar list at All Things Southern, (that list can be found in my Facebook notes) and how easy it is to become a Czar, (you just decide what you want to be Czar of and I say “Czar you are” and ta-da– you’re a Czar), several folks were interested in getting their titles!
During the book signing afterwards we had several official christenings.
And the Czar of Cheerleader Memories:
Thanks, Ruston! Y’all rock. 🙂
So what do you want to be the Czar of?
