I had a fantastic time at Big Apple Books on August 31st 2013 in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Like them on FACEBOOK!!! They’re the best!
Thanks to store owner Rob who was an excellent host and his assistant Blanca who was always aware of whatever any guest seemed to need before they even asked her! What a great team and store filled with amazing books, vinyls, movies, CD’s and even 8 tracks! (Thank you, Rob, for your gifts (awesome vinyls I intend to display)! And, for giving me a discount on the books I purchased a week later after the event!
I want to thank my friends and family for attending and supporting me and to all the loyal customers of Big Apple Books who supported me that day as well! I met one customer who was quite amazing named Ed. He was once a dancer on cruise ships and even had an article written up on him in the paper back in 2003!
Rosemary, a local painter, won the free raffle prize giveaway and I loved how my grandmother took over the book table for me so I could chit chat and meet new people. Thanks Gram!
There were some little kids sneaking pieces of candy while I was setting up for the signing and I was having a blast capturing them doing it! What giggles came from them and then me as they realized they were caught. They came in with their mom for books. I love to see young ones being encouraged to read. It made the start of the day wonderful.
The experience was wonderful and I couldn’t have done it without everyone’s support and positivity. Rob, the store owner said my friends and family were warm and kind and that just made me feel proud to be blessed with them in my life. They are great and so were the ones I met in the bookstore that day.
Everyone was fantastic with great life stories to tell.
I met someone who helped animals, one battled kidney failure, another who was a children’s writer and another who was being a good Samaritan for a friend. There were two who battled cancer, a mom to be, and even a mother whose college daughter is an amazing artist that I hope to have illustrate a book cover for me!
Thank you again. I am very grateful and look forward to doing this again with all of you!
