Paris Monday March 19th

Wow.  Salon du Livre in Paris was exciting and exhausting.  Lots of books, wonderful displays, and ongoing discussions.  I was at the J’ai Lu booth and signed for four hours!  Kat kept a rough count of people; I signed for over 270 readers!  Today my hand is a bit weary, but it’s a much quieter… Continue Reading
