When I was a teenager, I used to greatly enjoy watching reruns of Monty Python's Flying Circus on PBS. I recall an often repeated line from that program "...and now for something completely different."
So I was wondering if a Tom Spears book signing qualifies as something "completely different"?
It sure feels that way.
If someone told me a couple of years ago, that I would be signing and selling copies of my first novel at a local cafe, I would have looked at them like they were crazy. And if that person had suggested I'd be excited about it, I would have known they were crazy. I was too deeply engrossed in the business of business at that time to even be interested.
And yet, here I am -- my first official book signing scheduled for "Cheri O's" in Ashland on Saturday from 10AM to 2PM. And I'm psyched about it.
Not that I'm expecting to be overrun with fans, but it certainly seems symbolic -- showing that, yes indeed, I really am an author.
