Heat didn’t deter visitors from the first Friday Night Art Walk of 2017 in downtown Huntsville last night. Families, dogs, and even a few out-of-town visitors circled the square to check out our vendor tables. One journalist caught me in the photograph of their article; I’m in the crowd in the top center.
That’s my corner.
People were in the mood to talk about YA fiction last night. I met several interesting readers and one collector who wanted to know how to identify first editions of print-on-demand books. I didn’t know. One of my dear friends stood by my shoulder and helpfully said, “She’s going to be famous someday. You should buy her books!”
He agreed. He asked me to write the original publication date when I signed them.
One of these days, I hope to be signing a hardcover first edition of a new book with a publication date printed on the copyright page by the publisher.
