Local author sells 5


“Local author book-signing” welcome on the sidewalk outside the front door of A VERY LITTLE BOOKSTORE today. 


And the entrance cubby where I sat or stood to sell my novels, METAL MAN WALKING and ANNIE DREAMING. 

I sold and signed five novels: four of METAL MAN WALKING and one of ANNIE DREAMING. 

I’m exhausted, but happy.

The edit – an opportunity to polish and make the work better!
