My second time signing at SMB, and loving it all over again. This place is really something -- I wanted to shop as much as I wanted to sign. So many authors, so many books. I don't think I could ever work here, or I'd never get anything done.
As usual, the people here are so fantastic, Bill and Fran taking time during the lulls to chat with me about any number of things. And the mystery reading customers are naturally fun and interesting to talk to.
So I'm delighted to be able to start my Seattle area tour for the newly released Heaven Preserve Us at SMB. Add in the cool weather (and no rain, so far) and Bumbershoot, along with a few visits to favored restaurants, and I couldn't think of a better way to spend my Labor Day weekend.
Thanks everyone! Cricket McRae
