The release of Grave Witch seems to be going well from my outside view (Of course, I won't know anything definite until I hear from my publisher in several months.) The blog tour stops have seen good traffic, the online chatter has been really positive, and reviews are cropping up! Thank you everyone who has picked up a copy already, and double thank you to everyone who has blogged/tweeted/recommend it to others. You guys are AWESOME!
But everyone who came out was absolutely amazing. I must have talked to fifty or sixty people over the course of the two hour signing. Many of the readers who came to the event were familiar with my Haven series, and it was great to talk about Kita and her world with real live people (who aren't my CPs and a captive audience). I was terrified that I'd sit there all alone for most of the night, but people came and went in such a staggered pattern that I almost wonder if you guys didn't gather and plan entrances before hand. I don't think I went more than a couple minutes without someone there at the table. It was great. I can't decide now if the success of the first signing makes me more or less terrified of the Halloween signing planned for the end of the month. LOL

I'm not going to say too much here, but if you remember my post on World Hoop Day last year, you know that the event is not only to celebrate the joys and benefits of hooping, but to raise awareness and spread the fun. All around the world on 10-10-10 at 10:10 am, people were hooping in their communities. In my home city, we gathered at the State House and jammed for a full hour.
We had a great turn out for the event, and we got decent exposure from walk by traffic--we even managed to talk several people into joining us! Very fun!
Hope everyone's weekend went well. Happy Monday!
