Book Signing and Book Reading
 

Book Signing

 

Last Saturday, August 25th, I signed copies of my historical, The Sign of the Eagle, at Fact and Fiction in downtown Missoula, MT, home of the University of Montana. It was one busy time on N. Higgins Street, where the store is located. At each end of the block a "farmers market" was in full swing and the festival, "River City Days" was going on, too--you could hear music playing in the distance. Heavy foot traffic streamed past the store in each direction while vehicular traffic was bumper to bumper. This went on from the time I arrived at the store prior to 11 a.m. and was still just as heavy when I left at 2 p.m.

 

I met a lot of people, passed out fliers and business cards and signed copies of my novel. I brought along for display the original oil painting by my niece, Katrina Hughes Brennan, which was used for the book cover. The painting received many compliments, and I answered a lot of questions pertaining to the work.

 

The store manager, David, was very helpful. He had a table set up near the front door with a book display and an easel set up for the portrait. During the slow periods between signings he answered several of my questions about Missoula and Montana in general.

I wish to thank David and the store owner, Barbara Theroux, for allowing me the opportunity to sign books at their store.

 

 

Book Reading

 

When I interviewed for the article published in the August 18, 2012 edition of the Spokane Spokesman-Review (The Longest Chapter - Today Section), I also did a reading of the first scene from Chapter one of my novel. Click onto the below link and listen.

My next signing will be at Aunties Books, 402 W. Main St., Spokane, WA, Saturday, Sept. 8, 1-3 p.m. Hope to see you there.

 

 

That's all for now. Thank you.
