Fireside Book Signing in West Bend WI
There was a lot of speculation about our visit to the Fireside Bookstore in West Bend, WI. We weren't nervous about it but we can't say it wasn't on our minds. We walked into the store to see a perfect setting for a large group who wanted to listen to authors. We set up the equipment and were ready to go. We were pleasantly surprised to see every seat filled with many standing. Everyone was attentive and asked important questions throughout our Q/A segment. Before the questions ran out, we had to stop so those interested in an autographed copy could be on their way. We were in the bookstore for about two hours. We joined Dennis and others for lunch at Panara. We found out later that our book signing had the largest turnout of any author visits in the store's 15 year history. We felt we made a positive impact on our West Bend friends and hope to visit this welcoming community again.
