Independent Bookstore Day at the NE Mobile Bookfair

Saturday was Independent Bookstore Day, and I spent a good part of the day at the NE Mobile Bookfair, having a great time meeting customers, selling books, finding new fans, and sampling the complimentary Cabot's ice cream. Owner Tom Lyons made it a special day, and it was great to see so many people coming to browse and buy books, despite the lovely Spring weather, which we so needed.

We had a few other authors attending as well. Here's Ursula Wong.
Her latest book, Amber War, is a recommended Staff Pick at the bookstore, so you know it's good.

And Joanna Schaffhausen came by with family. 
Joanna's debut novel, Vanishing Season is a hit book, also on sale at the bookstore.

Sara Marks has her debut novel out as well, Modern Persuasion

And a soon-to-be-published debut novelist, Nicole Asselin, who just announced the acceptance of her first book, a baseball mystery, out later this year.
She has good taste, holding a copy of A Sharp Medicine, my latest Zack Taylor mystery.

Why yes, I did have my table and books set out for people to check out. Sales were good, and we've got some new fans.

So we kept rather busy with all the customers, doing their best to support a local business and a local author. It was fun, and a good time to remember to shop local!
