I’m going to be at the Barnes & Noble in Lynchburg, VA tomorrow (Saturday), June 7th from 11 AM to 2 PM. They have invited me to be part of their local author event. I’m honored, excited, and just a little bit nervous.
I’d love to see any of you who can come.
This is only my second book signing event, and I’m actually supposed to talk to everyone. They want us to share a little bit about ourselves. Eeep. It’s one thing to get up and act a part, quite another to be myself. I’ve considered creating a MB Dahl persona, but I have enough of an identity crisis without confusing the mix. So, I guess I’ll just be me. (And I won’t make any self-degrading, derogatory comments about that.)
It’s all good and wonderful and exciting, and I can’t express how thankful I am for all of your wonderful encouragement. As I continue to seek God’s purpose and use for me in this writing thing, I continue to discover that so much of it is serving you, listening to you, and simply caring. I do hope the stories I write will not only entertain, but encourage and inspire and be useful somehow. Maybe that’s too much to expect, but I don’t think so. I’ll be expectant.
Anyway, I just wanted to let you know the news. Come on down to the Lynchburg Barnes & Noble and meet a bunch of local authors.
PS. I”ll have plenty of Milk Duds.
Congratulations on the book signing, Mary Beth! I won’t be able to attend, but I’m happy you are being honored for your hard work and faithfulness.
