I went into +McNally Robinson Booksellers today to see for myself what several people were telling me - that they saw different advertisements in the store about the upcoming reading and signing on Sunday at 2:00 pm in the Atrium.
Just inside of the parking lot entrance, guess what I saw? Me! There I was - on a nice blue poster right next to copies of my book! I had a good look and smiled to myself. I know I sound excited but I think I am entitled to feel that way. After all, this is my first full-length book (I have published chapter in a book on vocational education and other published items in academic journals). I am no J.K. Rawlings or Alice Munroe so I'll take whatever space I can get.

I walked around some more and picked up a monthly newlsetter and event flyer and this is what I saw:

I perused the Prairie Authors section as well as the non-fiction section but I didn't see any of the books there. Then I asked one of the staff where else I might find copies of my book. She directed me to the Politics section and Women Authors section. And there they were!

I am very pleased with the support I am receiving from McNally and John Toews has been more than helpful. I hope to see some family and friends on Sunday otherwise I'll be pretty lonely (and slightly embarrassed).
Another good thing happened today just as John and I were emailing each other to confirm Sunday's details, but you'll have to check back tomorrow for the details.
