Booksigning at Costco

Okay, I confess: while I was in Spokane yesterday running errands during Younger Daughter's fiddle lesson, I (ahem) swung by Costco to see if the rumor was true.

It was. They had a sign out front advertising the booksigning! An exciting moment!


For those who can make it, the signing will be at Costco on Sprague Avenue from noon til 2 pm.

I hope some people can come and say hi because I've seen far too many pathetic and lonely authors sitting in solitude at a table in a bookstores, vainly hoping someone will stop in and say hi. (In other words, I have a secret fear the booksigning will be a flop.)

Wish me luck!

  1. Good luck!
    (I probably won't make it, mostly because I live across the Atlantic, but I do hope lots of other people will!! :-)

  3. There's no way your booksigning will be a flop. I predict lots and lots of people. If I lived close by, I'd sure be there.

  4. If I were closer and not stuck in the desert of oppressive heat I would come just to support a fellow writer. That I love your writing is an added bonus!

  5. Oh man, I wish I could come! I have a feeling you will not be lonely:)And I'll sit and read a few more pages during that time and throw up a couple of prayers on your behalf: that your pen not run out of ink,that no one spills coffee on your books and that you run out of copies (a good thing, I hope)! Have a wonderful time!

  6. I'm stealing the car from my husband tomorrow just so I can come to it! And if no one is there, I'll stay and talk your leg off, unless you tell me to get lost...:P

    I'm going to make tomorrow my prepping day, I'll hit the new survival food store in CDA, then into Spokane for the signing and then check out the LTS foods at Rosauer's on the way home! YAY!

  9. You're fearful it will flop, and I'm afraid I won't get there in time to snag a book! You are too funny, Patrice. :)

  11. Patrice,
    I pray that you had a wonderful time at your booksigning. I could not make it as at the same time, my children and I were at our church hosting the "seniors" (they say 50+ but as I am almost 49, I do not see how 50 is senior :-0 )for their monthly Maranatha potluck and bible study. Going to Spokane is something I usually avoid like the plague as I hate cities, however,I would have tried to make it if I had not been previously committed. Maybe CDA someday?

  12. I'm so excited! My daughter preordered the book for Mother's Day, and it came yesterday!!!! We are leaving Saturday for the 20+ year running of the family vacation to Atlantic Beach, NC. Man! I wish we were leaving tonight for Spokane! Break a leg! I think you better take some Motrin for the sore arm you are sure to have!!!

  15. Atlanta is a little far away, otherwise I know my wife and I would love to have met you in person.

    Good luck and I am sure it will be a hit without us :)

  16. Lisa,

    The store is located at 235 W Dalton. I haven't been there yet. Their website, se1.us, keeps getting hacked by someone trying to spread a virus or something, so be careful.

  17. Man Patrice, wish I was on the other side of the country right now. If you get sent to do any signings in the Gettysburg area, post it. Not only would we be there, but dear daughter would love to show your dear daughters the history sites here.

  18. Patrice,

    Never fear, it will be fun.

    I was amazed Amazon delivered my copy already. But I don't get to read it...YET. My bride took one look and it disappeared into her bag. I won't see it for days now, LOL.

  19. Patrice if this keeps up your publisher may have to put you on tour! Your experience with the tankard business and your grit make you a natural, and if anyone could cheerfully bear up to a three week series of event's like today's in Spokane, girl, it's you. Oh the glamor of it all! LOL

    I'm glad they're doing this, and that it's in driving distance for you. I can hardly wait for you to get back!
    I'm tickled to hear Renee will be there. I know you're gonna have much to tell.

    Have a good time!

  21. I would have gone, but I live in MA and I don't have the gas money or the time off of work to make the trip. =) I hope it went well and that you had a good time meeting your fans.
