5 Tips for Attending a Book Signing

This week, I was able to drive over to Frisco, Texas, to listen to Sarah Dessen talk about her latest book, which I reviewed HERE. I hadn’t ever been to a book signing before, so I really had no idea what to expect. I wasn’t sure how early to show up or if I could bring a book from home for her to sign. How long would it last?

ReBlog – Some say ‘said’ is dead but others say it’s really the only way. I’m on the fence. I’d hate to say I wouldn’t use a style of writing. I think everything has it’s place.
