We had a fantastic book signing this past Saturday at ColdWater Books in Tuscumbia! As part of Loving Locals Winter Fest, I joined over thirty other authors for a fun afternoon of books, coffee and conversation. All total, we sold 24 copies of The Professor and got to meet a lot of nice people.
My wife Dixie accompanied me, and passed out cookies with The Professor cover on the front of them, which were a huge hit. Also stopping by was Will Powell, my best friend from law school and the inspiration for the character of “Powell Conrad.”
One very special visitor was Mrs. Carolyn King, my eighth grade English teacher. Mrs. King taught me how to write a paragraph, and the lessons I learned in her class have stayed with me to this day. I was so surprised and excited to see her that I totally forgot to ask for a picture!
Other notable guests were my friends Edgar Black, Braxton Ashe, Nathan Ryan, Bob Mackenzie, Rebecca Michael and my friend Mary Lynn Bishop’s father, Buddy.
Sandi Hendrix and her staff at ColdWater Books did a fantastic job with this event, and I was honored to be a part of it. If you are ever in the Shoals area, stop by ColdWater Books and have a cup of coffee and a blueberry muffin. Then peruse one of the finest bookstores in the state of Alabama. My wife, Dixie, was especially impressed with their children’s selection of books, complete with a reading cave for the little ones to enjoy.
Very cool stuff, and an all around fantastic signing!
