Score one for the unpopular kid.
Friends, colleagues, and students past and present showed up for the readings and signings, as did Mrs. M and the Spawn. We nearly sold out of our copies of Dark City Lights, and moved quite a few issues of Dark Corners and a copy of Broken Glass Waltzes. I took Larry’s advice for each session and chatted with the visitors until we had a quorum of at least a half-dozen, at which point I went ahead and did a little reading. I left a couple of copies of BGW and Dark Corners for later customers, but for my first off-campus signing, it was a good time all around.
So to the folks who made it today, and those who were with me in spirit — thanks so much!
