My first reading went very well and they sold all the books they had ordered. People asked great questions-at least 15 or so. Some of them had never occurred to me. It pays to have a lot of readers, writers and teachers in the crowd.
I wasn't nervous at all once it got started. And once I had gotten a laugh or two. Thanks for your encouragement and your ideas about what to do. Jeff's idea about having Phil ready got a big laugh.. So too, Yvette's reminiscences of seeing and swooning over Crais and Child. And a huge laugh over the line that the questions people posed might not be that great. So you are my standup act,
