We Were So Lucky

Last Saturday Christmas on Main  took place as planned in downtown Benson, Arizona. The day was sunny and fairly warm, without a hint of rain. I didn’t set up my canopy because I figured the sun would feel good. The canopy of the woman next to me blew over, so it was a good decision. People seemed to like my books and I sold quite a few.

MR. TOAD’S WILD RIDE OF WEATHER

Yesterday (Saturday 11/26/16) the high was 69 degrees in our winter home of Sierra Vista, Arizona. Next Saturday (when I’m signed up for the outdoor Christmas on Main in Benson, Arizona), the projection is 44 degrees (!) and rain. Near as I can figure out, there’s neither a market for wet books nor an enticement to Arizona customers at that temperature even without rain.

Have been in Arizona a little over two weeks and have sold 202 books, 157 of which were copies of my newest book, The Cochise County Cat: A true Arizona Tale. Yippee! 

High Hopes About My First Book Launch Tomorrow.

Here’s hoping lots of the people, who were invited by postcard, who saw flyers various places or whose children brought home flyers from their schools, will show up tomorrow. It’ll be fun with the meet and greet, the sheriff reading the new book, the raffles and the refreshments. I’ll just say a few words to thank the people, who made the launch possible, and those who have supported my writing career with encouraging words and/or buying my books.
