Unique Signings Janet Lane

One of my long-time critique buddies had her first signing for her first book last night. At the Tattered Cover which is THE place to have a book signing.

And the bar for a signing event has forever been raised.

A few months ago, Mario Acevedo (Nymphos of Rocky Flats) had a signing where some of the theater group he works with gave little skits about the fears (this book is trash) an author has about people reading his/her work, and the hopes (we’re blown away by your talent, take me, take me AND my sister…).

Naturally Janet attended and it gave her Ideas. As the director of her own group of town players, we had the Singing Synopsis of Tabor’s Trinket last night. FABULOUS. Well, not only can Janet write, and write songs, but I think I’ve mentioned that she is the best plot person and synopsis person in my group. Much fun and laughter was had.

Janet also followed Mario’s examples in raffling off her critique buddies books as gifts. Much to my surprise. So I autographed Heart Quest to another Robin (spelled the only way Robin should be spelled, she said).

So the signing was wonderful, and the book is GOOD. Of COURSE I gave it a cover quote. Some fascinating information about medieval gypsies (they were once thought of as nobles from another land).

Bottom line, everyone had a good time and she probably sold more books because of that. And following this is gonna be tough.

May your writing entertain today.

I can only imagine that singing a synopsis would have to be to a blues tune.

Gads, I hate them!

It was very upbeat, with medieval costumed performers (men waving swords), and chanting a fun chorus....

Synopses are the absolute slowest process of all my work.
