Last Friday night's event at The Clinton Bookshop was one of the most memorable evenings that I spent with an author and readers.
The day had been overcast and grey with driving rain. Ike was raging somewhere in the country and I am not sure if these rains were related to that or the hammering from another storm. I had lost track. I had spent the day writing since about 6AM and thus by 6:15PM I was eager to pack it in, grabbed my slicker and head to the bookstore.
Here are some thoughts from the beach on the Outer Banks last week...
1. When reading and floating in the pool it is best to read advance reading copies. They are paperbacks in a size easy to hold. Hardcovers WILL get wet and manuscripts have too many free floating pages to be near water. Thus it's ARCs in the pool, hardbacks on the couch and manuscripts in the car (where the pages can get stuffed between the seats after you read them).
