I just wanted to make a quick post saying thank you to the folks who came out to the Barnes & Noble at Northgate this afternoon. You guys were a marvelous audience, and I greatly appreciate your patience and warmth. (My voice was pretty much shot until the Mucinex kicked in, about halfway through the event; and I was kind of loaded up on cold medicine … so I was even more rambly and loopy than usual.)
Excessive and copious thanks likewise to the B&N staff, who threw such a marvelous mid-afternoon cookie party, with particular kudos to the exuberant Covahgin and spiffy-dressing John-who-turns-out-not-to-be imaginary. (Covahgin is the super-groovy woman who invited me in the first place — and John is the mystery man who keeps recommending Boneshaker all over the place, but who neeeeever seemed to be working when I stopped by to tell him thanks for all the book-love.)
Anyway, thanks again! This was my first B&N event ever, and it was a very, very pleasant one.
