I’m losing track of what day of the week it is – let alone where we've gotten to in the month. It's now Saturday, October 21, but let me see…where did l leave off with my last entry? Hmmm...
Oh, yeah! So, it's now Saturday. And on Wednesday morning, I was on a Kamloops radio station – 98.3 CIFM – with the delightful Stan and Henry. What charming, fun guys. I was even invited back, so I must have behaved myself. The next day I did the Shuswap Women-in-Business Trade Show; that was a lot of fun. Then, on Friday, I appeared on the local TV station, CFJC – on their midday show with the dazzling Susan Edgell. She conducts a great interview. You can check it out here:
That same evening, I joined Magge Davidson from Spirit Quest Books at her booth at the Interior Wellness Festival, where we enjoyed a fine evening.
Today (Saturday) I spent a couple hours at the local Chapters/Indigo bookstore doing another book signing. I'll include a photo of my display, down below. I had to bring in a fresh load of books from the car when the store sold out all their copies! What a great feeling! While signing books, I had a chance to chat with people. That was a treat in itself, and to make it even better, I received quite a few nice compliments on my radio and TV interviews.
My next scheduled book signing is at the lovely Mosaic Books in Kelowna, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm on Saturday, October 28. I’ve got two more signings scheduled after that: Saturday, November 11, at the Chapters/Indigo store in Kelowna, and on Saturday, November 18 at Books & Company in Prince George. I’m sure there will be even more, but that’s the lineup at the moment. These things just keep coming. A whirlwind, just like I said!
The Salmon Arm Rotary Club has a big annual fundraiser coming up on November 4th, 5:30 to 9:00 pm at the Prestige Inn (yes, in Salmon Arm). I've donated a basket of my books and some dinosaur/dragon goodies for their popular silent auction. If you’re in the area, go on down and have fun at the auction. (And bid on my basket, of course!) They’ve got some other fabulous items on the auction block, too. Like a waterway houseboat vacation package, a golf package, some intriguing ethnic dinners and even some guided outdoor getaways. All bid donations benefit an array of very worthy charities, so it will be a big win-win for everyone.
I am thoroughly enjoying the whirlwind of activity Celine and her friends continue to conjure up for me. I’m so glad you’re following along – and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your support!
Bye for now,
