May I just say that my husband rocks?! For those of you who didn't receive the email blast (or see this post about his new release), Rod participated in our local Barnes & Noble author event with seven other authors this past Saturday. It was exciting and stressful and great fun! And, we both want to send out a huge THANK YOU to everyone who came out to support Rod on this very special day. What a thrill to see so many friends and family (some of whom we haven't seen in years!). To think we were worried nobody would show up -- halfway into the signing, I was worried we'd run out of books! And we nearly did!
But the biggest thrill of all was when I walked into work this morning and was informed that Rod's book was our store's #1 seller for the week. Yep, he beat out Jodi Picoult (My Sister's Keeper), Stephenie Meyer (Eclipse), Mark Levin (Liberty and Tyranny: A Conservative Manifesto), William Young (The Shack), and Dean Koontz (Relentless)! Whoohoo! :)
We also want to thank Hilary Sire (B&N Community Resource Manager extraordinaire) for putting on such a fantastic event. Rod says it was truly an honor to be part of such a memorable day.
Apparently, not everyone was impressed with Rod's book. We'll give her time. I'm sure she'll come around in a few years.
