Flying sure does make me tired. I spent most of yesterday feeling very slow and inefficient at everything, and eventually gave up and went back to my room and slept. I feel much better now!
Here are some pictures of folks that I took at the beginning and end of the signing, when I had a little time to wander around and see people myself.
Luckily, for the Literacy Autographing, all I had to do was sit down and talk to people. I can do that for a while even while tired. But the best part of the signing? Leia Rice had her e-reader, and I got to sign The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom and Their Lover with a stylus! I’ve signed my first e-book! Alas, the photo doesn’t show my autograph very well. But I am still thrilled.
My editor stopped by and I got to chat with her; I also got to meet, for the first time, a representative from the German publisher of The Duchess, Her Maid, The Groom and Their Lover in translation. It was lovely to be able to tell her in person how much I like the edition’s dust jacket.
Also, I got to sit next to Beverly Jenkins! That was really cool.
