How did our Meet the Authors event go?

Totnes Book Signing #1 on 3 July 2013 Tangerine Tree Cafe 008

Absolutely brilliantly! It was so much fun – we had a fabulous time chatting with people, some who were already friends, some who were strangers (but we hope are now friends, too!)

There were some marvellous synchronicities – our very first ‘guest’ was a lovely lady who’s written a book containing … yes, you’ve guessed it – crystals! Her novel’s heroine is named Tiera (whereas ours is, of course, Keira) and she said she simply had to come and meet us! She brought her own novel, Dawndancer, for us to look at. We’ll certainly be checking it out! This lovely lady is also a talented artist.

The atmosphere of our space within the Tangerine Tree Cafe was warm and welcoming. Joanna had also sent Reiki and lovelight to the space ahead of time to ensure that it felt as positive and light as possible. She took a pouch of crystals along to further enhance the energy of the space. That prompted some discussion, with guests handling the crystals and talking about their own experiences.

In addition, the cakes were divine and the coffee is Ron’s favourite blend of the moment. He’s very particular about his coffee, is Ron. 😉

Our event has certainly given us the taste for meeting with more of our readers (existing and future) in person, and we’d love to do another sometime. Or two. Or three …. especially if cake is involved!

Huge thanks go to Jo’s husband, Walt, for taking the photographs, and to Ron’s wife, Mo, for graciously allowing him ‘time off’ to attend meetings and events with Jo! 🙂

If you couldn’t make the event and would like to purchase a paperback copy of The Cordello Quest, you might be interested to know that Amazon UK are currently discounting it to just £4.19. The Cordello Quest is also available online through Waterstones, The Book Depository, WHSmith, etc, if you prefer to shop elsewhere.

And for us, it’s back to writing, editing and doing what we can to raise the profile of our work! 🙂

Joanna and Ron 🙂

  1. Fabulous Jo and Ron, knew it would go well. Hope it’s the first of many! xxx


  2. I am so very excited to know how much fun you had!!! I knew it would go well, but to have so many synchronicities also!!! How exciting!!!!! Much love, my friend!


  3. So pleased it went well, i think it’s really brave to do an event. I did an impromptu mini signing at the end of my writing class but nothing ‘official’ yet, it looked like you had a lovely time. Here’s to more signings xx


  4. Woohooo I’m so thrilled that it went well ~ not that I ever had any doubt whatsoever ~ and that you had a great time. The happy smiles in the photos speak volumes, thanks for sharing. Next time will be even easier! Rock on and hope to see you soon! XXX


  5. Crystals have such an amazing effect – handling them is always a surprise, as some feel warm and others feel cold. You know when you have the ‘right’ stone for you in your hand! I’m thrilled for you both that this event went so well. Ron – I’m another coffee-holic and proud! Every step forward is positive and sending Reiki and lovelight to the space ahead of time? Inspired! Lxx


    • I totally agree, Linn – and the energy emitted from some stones is quite staggering! Lovely to know you’re on the same wavelength. 🙂 So sorry I missed your Facebook event launching ‘Ceri’s Journey: Angels’ yesterday but we were out until late, and my husband and I didn’t get home until a couple of hours ago! I will pop in now!

      Lovely to see you here; thanks for commenting. 🙂
