They say you never forget your first time. They're not wrong. My first signing event was, without a doubt, the most amazing day I've every experienced. Book Babes in Stoke was local to home, which made it extra special. There's something kind of reassuring about being on your own turf when you're doing anything for the first time, but I think it would have been magic doing a signing event anywhere because the people at these things were just... so wonderful.
I met some amazing readers and some fantastic authors, and I can't wait to do it again.
Here's some shots from the day.
