I met some of my writer friends for lunch beforehand at Paradise Bakery & Cafe. The manager, Sandy, was so warm and friendly. She took good care of us.
This is a photo of me with Ruthie of Just Ruthie blog fame. She was a PK in China and blogs about her Chinese childhood memories. You should check it out.
Here I am with Colleen Wisman. She's the wonderful CRM at B&N. You can tell she loves her job. She's so happy and enthusiastic. She's invited me back for November 29th when Out of Her Hands is available.
