On this day, many, many, many, many moons ago, in a land far, far away, across the oceans, high up in the mountains, I made my crying appearance into this world. And so the fairy tale of my life began...
A friend of mine posted this picture of us on Facebook this past Sunday. I thought this was a funny coincidence. You see, that picture was taken on my sweet 16th birthday, 24 years ago. I'll let you do the math. I can't believe so much time has already gone by. [very heavy sigh]
On to the celebration part! For my birthday I am treating myself with a trip up to the Dallas Barnes & Noble to see Sherrilyn Kenyon on her Bad Moon Rising Tour. [insert snoopy dance] Yep, I'm taking a half a day off from work and I'm also dragging my son along because I don't want to make the trip all by my lonesome.
I'm taking my copies of Acheron, Bad Moon Rising and Dark-Hunters, Vol 1 manga to be signed. Also, while I'm there, I'm going to get an extra signed copy of Bad Moon Rising to bring back for a celebration here tomorrow.
Hopefully, all works out at the signing, I've never been to an author's signing before. This will be my first and I'm just a teensy-weensy bit nervous. I'm planning on arriving about an hour or so before it begins because I have no idea what the crowd might be like. I'm crossing my fingers that is plenty of time. I also plan on taking tons of pictures. I'm so excited!
If you've been to an author's signing before, tell me about it. I'd love to hear about your first experience at one.
Side Note: I noticed the hardcover edition of Acheron is only $5.99 on the Barnes & Noble website. That's cheaper than the mass media paperback, which is $7.99.
