The husband and I got up around 5:00 in the morning, packed the car, and set off. After a short stint on Route 10, then 295, we go onto 460, heading east. Dawn was slowly peeping in the horizon, more a pale golden color than splattering of oranges and rose. We stopped at a McDonald's on the way down for breakfast, eating it as we wanted to get there around 8 a.m to get my table set up. Which we did.
At ten o'clock the library opened and people came in. Some were those checking in books, or looking for books to check out. But they checked my table, my author friend, Tina Glasneck's table and the other venders, too. I even sold a few books that I signed. When it was 11 a.m., I managed to get way from my table to do the panel both Tina Glasneck and I were to do. We had a few people, despite the early time, and I felt it went off well. I found time to go around and snap some photos--even of a spot where figures of famous movie monsters were set up. Bowman's Body (Bill Bowman) came by with his granddaughter where I gave him an author copy of Haunted Richmond II since he has a chapter in the No Paranormal Legends of Richmond. See below where his granddaughter a photo of us with him holding his book.
The car packed, we drove up to a nearby Mexican restaurant, to join friends for good food and chat--a great end to a great day.
