Book Signing



I do apologize for the photos, which I took from amazon.com, but my camera wanted to be snarky this morning and not download a photo I took. Anyway, last week I went to a booksigning at the local Community College. Our local news-anchor on channel 12 in Winston-Salem has written another novel. I was surprised that a few of my friends also attended, none of us knew the others were attending! Mr. Kent gave a good talk on the basics of becoming a writer and was very interesting. I read his first book, "When the Ravens Die" several years ago, when it came out. Yesterday morning, about 4am, I finished reading his latest book "Road to Devotion". It is set in Civil War days, in our local area. I think he did a very good job, and I enjoyed his new book a lot. I have now started a book called "Death by Cashmere" by Sally Goldenbaum, of the Seaside Knitting Mysteries. It is too soon to tell if I'll like this one, but I am hoping! I have been a reader all of my life. I cannot imagine even a day without a book in my hand. I've never had the opportunity or finances to travel, so I buy books. My lovely books have taken me to all the places I can only dream about. I have learned new hobbies with my books, too. I thank God for my parents, who were readers, and that my children are both avid readers (and teachers!). I feel like I have passed something worthwhile down to them!

Hi June,
Just now getting back to the computer.Enjoyed your post about the book. I'm just about through reading it and I am enjoying it also. I think his writing has improved a lot from his first book. Your children have received a lot of good qualities from you, you've been an excellant parent and role model. Take care and keep on reading, spinning, knitting, crocheting,etc. etc.
Hugs,
T P

Love to read, but rarely have time for it. I am reading a book now that I should have finished on the first day and I have had it lying open on my ottoman for a week now. Reading is a past time we were able to hand down to our children also. It truly can transport you to places you will never be able to see yourselves.
I understand not wanting to be her in three generations, but you never know how long this will go on. Remember He said no one knows the time or the hour, only his Father in heaven knows.
