I'm at the Miami Book Fair International supporting my colleagues at the South Florida Writer's Association running the booth with Don Daniels and other members as they trickle in throughout the weekend. We've been selling quite a lot of books despite the ridiculous amount of rain that has been hitting the city. Every so often we get a nice calm in the sky, the clouds give way for some sunshine; letting the people pour in from the metrorail and the buses feeding the area more freely.
My book, I Think? No, I'm Sure...God Hates Me, seems to be a great conversation starter as the title seems to shock people or stop them in their tracks as they walk by. Don's Rhyme and Punishment book has also been a great conversation piece as he can be seen showing patrons various entries that soon fill the air with racous laughter. Ricki Dorn was also with us for some time last night and was showcasing her wonderful poetry book, Strands of Rhyme.
It was a nice first day, gloomy with the weather, windy, yet an interestingly satisfying start for the weekend.
I signed every book yesterday and look forward to signing more today.
I hope to see many new faces today!
