Crowds at Friday Night Art Walk

Alabama heat didn’t deter visitors from the first Friday Night Art Walk of 2018 in Downtown Huntsville last night. Local families, dogs of every size, and even a few out-of-towners 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. That’s where the magic happens.

Books for Sale

People were in the mood to talk about YA fiction. Readers from every walk of life stopped at my table to chat. One man was a collector who wanted to know how to identify that a print-on-demand book is a “first edition.” Good question. I had no idea.

At this point a friend who’d come to give moral support said,” You should buy her books. She’s going to be famous someday.”

“I don’t doubt it,” he said and purchased all four of them. He also asked me to write the original publication date under my signature.

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.

What about your thoughts on the Friday Night Art Walk? Did you discover any great treasures?
