HAPPY SATURDAY IN LEE’S SUMMIT

Published February 27, 2017 by rochellewisoff

What can be more gratifying for an author than seeing her books in print? Seeing that readers appreciate her efforts. 

Last Saturday marks my first book signing in 2017 at Reader’s World in Lee’s Summit Missouri. For those unfamiliar with this little book and gift nook, it’s a lovely, local alternative to its national competitor. Many thanks go to Christian Apodaca who is inviting and supportive to local authors. 

Book sales went fairly well, thanks to three readers who bought the entire trilogy.

In addition to the joy of selling, was the joy of seeing some friends I haven’t seen for a while. One of the high points for me was reconnecting with Dawn Downey, fellow author who was one of my earliest mentors in the Kansas City Writers Group. 

My husband, Jan was on hand to snap a few photos:

  • A good little book store and local author supportive. Hearing other comments about how great a movie series this trilogy would be. We all agree it would be a blockbuster. Come on Hollywood, wake up…..here we are, waiting for the call. Lol.

    • Chère Dale,

      On the other hand, you’re fluent in two languages which I think is awesome and wonderful. Someone told me a couple of years ago that the small bookstores are cropping back up. I hope there’s truth to the rumor.

      Thanks for dropping by.

      Shalom,

      Rochelle

      • True. And I am so ever grateful to my parents for insisting…
        There are some nice little bookstores – but they are mostly in Montreal. I do love to take the time when I’m in an area that has one…

    • Dear Magaly,

      I suspect you would enjoy Reader’s World. I plan to patronize this place. They carry some wonderful children’s books and gifts that I’m sure my granddaughter will enjoy. 😉

      We did have a great time.

      Thank you for taking the time to read and comment.

      Shalom,

      Rochelle

  • I love small bookstores and used to go to signing regularly when I lived in Miami. I hope you do one in south Florida! I mean…you probably need a break from the cold weather, right?

  • Dear Rochelle,

    I meant to comment on these happy pictures and then forgot, as I read the post on my mobile. It looked like a very happy occasion. It’s this sort of thing that I miss out on as an indie author.
    That’s wonderful, those two people buying your whole trilogy. From a personal point of view, I love discovering a new author who has written a trilogy, so that I can read the books back to back.

    All best wishes,
    Sarah
