What Do You Listen To When You Write?

Onto the Good Stuff

Right, well most if not all of my treasures are now at work, and it looks lovely, it really does. The table is going to be set at the back of the store (I know, I can hear you all gasping in horror) and the reason for this is that it sits right in the line of site when you come in the front door. Now the gifts I made for the authors are all hung. That was an ordeal getting up and down the ladder to see them hung straight, and the tables set and covered and books that were one place moved to another and spinners moved from where they were to somewhere else and all manner of things shifted and changed and made ready for tomorrow (Mom and I went up there at 5:45pm and left at 9:00pm) and I am very tired. But before I go, here is the drawing table, a sneak peak for anyone who pops by here and also a tip off that yes indeed there will be a chance to win all four books by all four authors at the signing tomorrow! Pretty sweet I think and rather nice of my bosses to add that to all the other goodies we have planned.

btw the cloth, the lion, and the chest are all on loan from me. :-D I've got stuff all over the store.

Tomorrow comes a pace. I really hope I get to see Wayne and Bryan and Christopher and Sharon's reaction to the store-like their first take on it-last time I didn't realize the author was there (it gets busy) and so I missed his first delight in looking at everything.

Pais Charos said...

I hope you do too! I can't wait to meet you!

I finished my gifts :D

I have a surprise for you ^_^

everlastingscribe said...

:-D Oooh surprises are all ways welcome. And I'm glad you finished your gifts *whew* I got mine done too! And I may have a little something for you too, depends on how fast the glue dries. ;)

Pais Charos said...

And I love my bracelet! I haven't taken it off yet. Btw, in heraldry the griffin stands for "Valor, death defying bravery, and vigilance.
