My first reading ever at Book Soup on the Sunset Strip was AWESOME. I was really worried about attendance but it was SRO--standing room only. Wow! When I arrived 45 minutes early, fans (Whom I didn't know I had) Elizabeth and DJ were sitting up front. The book store was practically empty, and they were seated right in front of the podium. THANK YOU, Elizabeth and DJ for the big ego boost. They'd been following me on Twitter. THANK YOU Twitter.
As it turns out, they were the smart ones. The book store ran out of chairs, and most people were left standing. And for my second ego boost--THEY RAN OUT OF BOOKS. Of course it would have been nice if they had more books, but they were very nice and asked me if I'd come back and sign again. One of the clerks said it was one of the best signings they'd ever had. Ego boost number three.
Thank you everyone who attended from the bottom of my heart. And thank you Book Soup, you all made the night special for me.
I posted a few photos on my website. If you'd like to check them out Click here: e. van lowe - Where friends of E. Van Lowe can come and chat
And special thanks to Cousin Pam who catered the goodies. They were yum, yum, yummy! I am so glad I worked on my belly fat for three weeks. But I brought some of her famous deserts home so I'm sensing the return of belly fat.
By the way, that photo at the top that has me looking like a carnival barker or a rapper, is me greeting the crowd--grooving to the Black Eyed Peas. What better way to get the party started.
