A week or two ago, I read on Ashley at Nose Graze's blog (THANK YOU Angie for helping me remember where!!) about how she acts at book signings. It got me thinking about how I am at signings as well...
I'm that girl who gets there an hour early, who roams about the store too excited to do much of anything
When it comes to the authors, I panic a little before I step up to have them sign my books, scrambling for something witty to say and hoping I'll have the guts to ask for a picture. Generally, I say nothing interesting, but I do manage to ask for a picture. Once I've got my books signed, it's all I can do not to flip out and shove them in people's faces in my excitement.
So this is not a constructive discussion, but I'm curious, how are you at signings? Flaily and overly enthusiastic but awkward, like me? Or more put together? Who are your favorite authors you've met, want to meet, or are planning on meeting this year?
