So today I get a page from a nurse at work; he has his checkbook and wants to buy my novels.
“Which ones?” I ask.
He says he’s not sure.
I am just leaving to head to THIRD THURSDAY book signing in Summerville. I say, “You know, I’m going to sign books. Why don’t I come over and sell you my novels?”
And that’s what I do. He buys GANI & SEAN and another of my books. Then he helps me sell METAL MAN WALKING to another nurse who happens by. He talks my books up; he is such a fan!
At THIRD THURSDAY a bit later, I don’t sell any books but I peak the interest of several people.
All in all, a nice day of sharing my works.
Thanks to my readers and my small but slowly growing fan base!

Dropped off three copies each of METAL MAN WALKING and THE EIGHT-FOOT BOY to the shop downtown Summerville named The Finishing Touch; at the same time spoke with a lovely lady about my novels and about two book clubs she belongs to in the area. Also picked up a commission check from the owner of The Finishing Touch and cash from a sale made since my Third Thursday visit in April.
Actually brought home some “bacon” today. Of course, the leavings are minuscule but tasty nevertheless.

I have a book signing scheduled for December 20th 7pm-8pm at A VERY LITTLE BOOKSTORE in downtown Summerville, South Carolina.
I’ll have copies of METAL MAN WALKING and ANNIE DREAMING available for purchase.
Come on out; it’s THIRD THURSDAY and generally a roaring good time in Summerville.
