Finding Rose Update

So we finally made it to Utah. When I knew we were coming for sure, I set up a meeting with my publisher so I could actually see who I had been working with. I expected a nice sit down to talk about marketing and other things. One of the first things they said to me was that they had an opening to do an author signing at the LDSBA trade show. Was I interested? So I guess Thursday morning I will be there signing books from 11:00-12:00. They are planning to have copies of the book there and I should be able to take some home. Once they shocked me with that, we had a nice talk and they answered many of my questions.

Thursday morning will be the first time I will be able to see my own book and actually hold it in my hands. I've read blogs other authors who watch for the delivery truck with their books and get to open the box like a Christmas present. I think I would almost prefer a little privacy. Do you think it would be weird if I shed a few tears the first time I see the book? I'll try to refrain, but this is something I've always wanted to do and it all seems a little surreal at this point. I guess when I get that first copy, I can't pretend it is all a dream any more.

They did say the bookstores should be able to have copies of Finding Rose on their book shelves in two to three weeks. I'm so excited. It will be available at Deseret Book, Amazon, and your independent LDS bookstores.

This is so exciting! Your first book signing. I would love a signed copy! I will be starting the Stephanie Humphreys section on my bookshelf, right next to Gerald Lund.

Wow! I can't wait to hear more about your experience. (I'm hoping that you are going to make it this far south and I'll be able to hear it in person.)

Wow, Barb! That puts me in great company. It is exciting but a little scary too. The cool thing is that I should be able to see the first copy the day before my birthday.

I think it would be totally natural to shed a few tears! I am so excited for you! By now, your book signing is probably over for today. I can't wait to hear how it went. Congrats! I can't wait to see the book.
