Tonight I had a hot date with Barnes and Nobles. Since I started writing my 3rd book I have been getting the urging to do some research on the marriage / relationship / enlightened / healing relationships market. I had put it in my calendar as something for me to do on Friday (yesterday), today or tomorrow.
I’m on a role with this book and I do feel (maybe I shouldn’t be speaking about it…) that it’s going to be ready to be pitched soon and will be on the market even sooner.
Tonight was the night. I felt motivated. It was kind of late already (7:30PM) 🙂 but I wanted to go….
Got dressed (was in my PJs all day writing, boy does the time fly!) and headed out.
As a surprise, there was a book signing tonight. This guy named Brad Meltzer. I’ve never heard of him but in looking at the crowd that showed up for him, he was someone special.
I was amazed.
I had never been at a book signing before. It took my breathe away.
I walked up to his table area and watched him greet people, sign their books, and take pictures with them.
Tears welled up in my eyes. A huge lump in my throat.
Blaire, this is going to be you…. are you ready? Get yourself ready.
I had chills throughout my body. I’m walking through B&N checking out the scene and the crowd. My tears are all watery, I’m trying to keep it together, I want to let it out. I want to hysterically cry, I try to compose myself.
I see they give people a post it note so he can write their name correctly.
He seems to be writing a lot, not just his name.
I see him greeting people, like old friends who have caome out to support him.
How sweet. Check.
I see his daughter sitting besides him. She keeps looking at me. I’m sure she can tell I’m emotional. I feel like a fool crying over seeing an author I don’t even know at a book signing.
What am I going to do at my own book signing? The wave of emotions are so overwhelming. I’ll be crying through all of it… How am I going to keep it together?
Imagine all these people here, waiting in line to see me. To have me sign their book. Oh my g-d, this is amazing.
How do you become a best selling author? I read the back of his book cover and looks like he’s had quite a few best selling books. He’s on TV and involved in many different projects. Aww, my dream. I don’t know him but I already admire him.
No coincidence I was there tonight during this book signing. My guides wanted me to see it. To experience it… and I thank them.
I am ready for this, I am so ready. Yes, please bring it. I am ready to step into my future. I am ready to do this. All of this. Thank you.
