On Saturday, I will be signing the JANE AUSTEN MADE ME DO IT anthology for the very first time. I’m so nervous that I’ve been obsessively practicing my signature so that it’s just right. Don’t want to make any screw-ups in someone’s book!
Ugh! And what if I spell a person’s name wrong… white-out just won’t cover that.. And do I put the person’s name in the book. Do I inscribe a message or just sign my name? And exactly WHERE do I sign it? Title page or on the first page of my story? (Page 367, by the way) Am I over-thinking this ? I tend to do that.
*Pulling out hair* Off to practice some more, I guess!
And as a parting treat, here is Laurel Ann Nattress, editor of the anthology, at the Seattle-area book launch party. In this clip, she is introducing the anthology, discussing her inspiration for it and then she gives a reading.
To my utter delight, I’m proud to say that Laurel Ann chose to read the beginning of my story for her author reading at the book release (watch at the very end). Woo hoo!
*off to pinch self again*
