Meet the Parents' Friends

Thank you to everyone who came out (most of you by arm-twisting from one or both of my parents) to the signing in Plano on Saturday. Some of my mom's neighbors have kids selling over-priced candy for their little leagues or cookies for girl scouts. My mom has a daughter trying to hock chick lit books. But, at least my books won't make you fat.

This was my first book-signing (near) my hometown of Mesquite, so I was afraid it might be the high school reunion I've been avoiding for the last 14 years. Luckily, none of the total jerks (you so know who you are) showed up. Only the good peeps made an appearance. I saw my old high school tennis coach, Coach Howig. It was great to see her - even though she did ask me if I was keeping in shape, and I had to lie about the fact that I haven't seen the inside of a gym in months (perhaps years).

My grandma (Dad's side) was there, and she laughed at everything I read, even things that weren't really funny. Grandma - bless you. I'm going to plant her at every signing from now on as my own personal laugh-track.

Is there anyway to see a longer-term view of your appearances? I'd happily attend if you're going to be in the Philadelphia area, but I can't be trusted to check your schedule every week. I have trouble checking my own schedule every week (thank goodness my phone beeps at me when I'm supposed to go somewhere, but I digress....)! Thanks!

Hi Janice!

Unfortunately, most people in the publishing industry tend to procrastinate - not just the writers - so the current listing on my web site (www.caralockwood.com) are the only events I'm scheduled to attend at the moment. However, if you join my mailing list (join@caralockwood.com) then I'll be sure to send you notices of book signings in your area, if I come to Philadelphia. Thanks for writing, though!
