A few days ago, I booked a truck rental for an exciting little project: taking delivery of 2000 newly printed copies of The Dragons of Nibiru. The pick-up trip was scheduled for Tuesday. Then, on Monday, I heard some travel advisory warnings telling people not to use the highways on Tuesday. Great! Well, the truck was booked, so I just decided the weather man didn’t know what he was talking about.
I was wrong. He did know.
I hit the road Tuesday, right on schedule, and soon ran right into the strongest winds I’ve ever experienced. Torrential rains, too. All while driving a big moving truck. It was an experience and a half! But, now that it’s over and all 2000 books are neatly stored in my hallway at home, I’m proud that I made the five-hour drive unscathed. The truck made it safely through, too!
After picking up the books – hot off the presses at Kettle Valley Graphics in Kelowna – I dropped some off at the Kelowna Chapters/Indigo bookstore for my November 11 book signing there. Wow! What a nice store.
I've also got to drop off more books at the Chapters store here in Kamloops. They asked me to be sure to bring them some more, so there'll be plenty on hand when I do a book signing there this coming Saturday. Cool!
Next on the schedule (it will have happened by the time you read this) is an 8:45 am visit to Henry and Stan at radio station CIFM, to chat about what inspired me to write The Dragons of Nibiru. Then, on Thursday, I’ll be tending my table at the Shuswap Business Women’s Trade Show in Salmon Arm. I’m really looking forward to that, as there are a bunch of great people in that community.
To round off this great week, I’ll be visiting CFJC TV in Kamloops their Noon News program on Friday. Then it’s on to that Saturday book signing at the local Chapters/Indigo. Busy, busy!
