Signing at The Bookmark

Me with my friend, Mary Bowen & Karen Casey

What fun last night at The Bookmark with my friend Dottie Poythress who runs the church bookstore at Johnson Ferry in Marietta, GA. Many of my friends came despite the dreary Atlanta weather we've been having. I was signing The Jewel of His Heart. Some who hadn't read No Place for a Lady bought both books. It's always hard to sit still in the store and not get up and browse to see the latest books or check out the cool gifts to purchase. I was fascinated by an adorable turkey that gobbles and wound up buying it for my granddaughter Sarah. It's just too cute! This is one of my favorite places to shop and the staff at The Bookmark has supported my dream of being published and have held me up in prayer. I cherish them and their friendship. Did I tell you that while I was on staff at JFBC that my entry for the bookstore was chosen? This is me and Dottie Poythress.
If you haven't bought your copy yet I hope you will pick one up. Happy Reading.

Nice pix, Maggie! The Bookmark sounds like a store I would love to browse around...I'm sure I'd leave with a few new additions for my overflowing bookshelves! :o)

Take care,

Oh, you'd love it know doubt. And the ladies that work there are just precious. They carry a lot of nice gifts, too.

Sounded like a fun signing and a cozy fun place to sign too. Wish I could have been there!

I didn't look, but I'll go back to check, but do you have a schedule of your books signings posted? Not that I can make the commute, but it's fun to know.

Edna, I'm going to run a contest probably next week. Right now I'm swamped trying to finish galleys on book 2 and book signing. Stay tuned!

Tina, no, I haven't had time to create a widget. I have two book signings in the same week as galleys on book 3 but I should post those. My next signing will be at Sweet Spirit in Marietta on Nov. 7th.
