Impending Nuptials Ahoy!

Greetings, my fellow bloggerites! I just wanted to check in and let you know that:

A) The book reading was a semi-success — I managed to attract 4 entire people to come listen to me ramble. Huzzah!
B) The book reading was a semi-failure — I managed to attract 4 meager people to come listen to me ramble. Booooo.

In other news, I’m off for the long weekend (Canada Day!) to attend my friend’s wedding, so if I appear to be suspiciously absent for the next few days … well, it’s because I’m not here. I’ll post more about the book reading when I get back.


Oh, and don’t forget to enter the Goodreads Giveaway for Imminent Danger And How to Fly Straight into It! No purchase necessary, much love for all who enter, and the contest ends on July 1.


In conclusion, live long and prosper, and enjoy the unrelated media.

  1. I prefer option A. (Only slightly influenced by use of “Huzzah!” which gives me warm, fuzzy Beautiful Katamari thoughts.) 😀

  2. I go with the semi-success version! In the writers’ group I belong to, seven authors got together and all read their books at a restaurant. They didn’t have the courage to do it by themselves like you did. Now, if each of them attracted four, that would make 28, plus the captive audience of ‘regulars’!

  3. Yay option (a)! It’s a victory that 4 people came to hear your reading!

  4. Ha ha! Literally just got back from (and posted about) a friend’s wedding. 🙂 Hope you have a blast at yours as well!!

    • I suspect I shall. I dropped $350 on the outfit, so I’d BETTER have a good time, lol 😀

      • Oh WOW. Take pictures; I gotta see this amazing outfit!! :)) In return, you can see the awesome tennis shoes we wore! (Hint: They’re swell)

        • Aw snap, you got to wear tennis shoes? Dammit. My bride specifically said no sweat pants and no flipflops. Grrrr. 😀

          • Ah ha ha! Yeah, Katie’s wedding was very special for many reasons. And these tennis shoes are wicked-cool. Couldn’t wear sweats or flip-flops, but since a lot of the pictures took place on a rocky beach, the tennis shoes were just fine!!

  5. Option A is a lot better. Glass half full and all that. 😉
    Have fun at that wedding!

  6. You need to look at this from another point of view. How many people go to book readings nowadays? Hardly any. How many people came to yours? More than hardly any. It was a success!

    • Ah, very true! And now I have experience doing a book reading — for example, I’ve learned not to do a reading for a young adult book in a mall populated 99% by retired people!

  7. I reckon a turn up of 4 is pretty good for a book reading. Ditto what dylan says above.
    I just had a novel idea. Get it? “Novel” idea… ? Yeah.
    Anyway, you could try busking your book. Set up a table on a busy street corner with about a dozen of your books laid out and stand there reading from it in your best a-little-but-not-too-over-dramatic reading voice. No? You might have to read louder than that guitarist beside you though.
    Melbourne as some interesting buskers. There’s a guy who wheels a full-on upright piano onto the Sandridge Bridge in the city and plays. A lot of them have their CDs on dispay ready for purchase. Just a thought. 😉

    • Fascinating! I suppose if I’m reading aloud, that would count as a performance, wouldn’t it? 😀 Hmm … I’ll have to figure out the rules for busking in my city …

  8. Option A sounds much better. Enjoy your friend’s wedding. 🙂

    • Haha right? And I shall do my best 😀 How can one not enjoy a wedding? Free booze, fun music, assorted tender moments, etc. 🙂

  9. Sounds like some of the gigs I played in my rock-n-roll days. The bartender, the sound guy, and two drunks for an audience.

    • Lol. No drunks, sadly, although that would have spiced things up! The old guy didn’t talk the entire time, though, so it’s very possible he was plastered 😀

  10. Gwen Bristol

    Hey! Have you done a reading to post on YouTube? I always wondered how that would work out.

  11. More than one is an audience…..would love to hear you read. Youtube sounds like a good idea

    • Yeah, recording myself reading the first chapter has been on my to-do list for some time now. Just need free time and it’ll happen!!!

  12. Even well-known authors sometimes attract very small crowds. Don’t be so hard on yourself! Congrats on the reading. 🙂
