Tuesday night, Gentle Reader, I was at
in my beloved San Francisco for to launch my new Book Baby out into the world. (Now that
is an unattractive sentence, but you follow my meaning.) This was in
conjunction with their Not Your Mother’s Book Club™ teen event series.
small but enthusiastic crowd of die hard readers showed up. (Those
willing to slog into the city for a mid week event.) They asked fun and
silly questions. I nattered on for a bit at first and then we easily
filled up the remaining time with banter. And yes, secrets were
revealed. Secrets are always revealed if you come to see me in person,
it's one of the perks.
wore a sort of steampunk meets normal Gail attire. I wanted to wear
steampunk but something a little different as Nova Albion is coming up
in April and I knew I'd wear all my major steampunk outfits there. I
didn't want to wear the same thing in the same area so close together ~
never that. This was my solution and I have a similar mixed media for
the Steampunk Swap in Sacramento
Feb 16. (Retro Rack
blog post on the outfit to come, of course.)
Signing for the opening musician
was lovely live music to start and some nibbly bits (including a
delicious Victorian sponge). Afterwards, I signed everyone's books. I
received not one but two beautiful bouquets of flowers. And manged to
get home at a reasonable hour. All in all a most enjoyable evening.
With the ladies of Books Inc.

Our not repairing made it worse.
We haven't had any tea for a week...
