Rachel Epstein, the Events Coordinator at the UAA Bookstore, is a good friend. Even before I was published, we daydreamed about me having a book signing event at the bookstore. When I got a book contract, those daydreams blossomed into actual ideas. Since Fools Gold is set in the Gold Rush, I could wear my Victorian clothes from my cowboy action shooting. We could have a display of fools gold and real gold. A former student is in a Country Americana band, so they could come and play old-timey music. Since Ellie bakes apple pies, we could have apple pie for our refreshments.
Now we’re having the party. And yes, all those things are included, plus a few more! It’s not just a book signing, more of a celebration of the book and my debut as a author, and mostly a party for family and friends. Of course, you’re invited.
If you’re in Southcentral Alaska, please join us at the UAA Bookstore Monday, February 10, 2014, 5-7 pm. We’ll have “music, food and frolic,” as Rachel puts it. Free parking for bookstore events, no purchase required, just come celebrate this moment with us!
