Once again the team that makes the Nora Roberts’ book signing events a success delivered.

The first in line (I’m told) arrived around 6:30 a.m. I arrived at around 8:30 a.m. or so on Saturday, November 1st.  Here’s picture of how many were in line at that time:

Altitude at 1500 feet in Boonsboro made air feel colder to this Minnesotan

Meeting the authors and the great fans in line made the wait in line an adventure well worth braving the cold.

I met many lovely people in the line. First was Becky pictured with me here:

We tweeted this picture from the line and an author RT and mentioned great fun

She took a picture of me too – I got my coat on an a trip to Harper’s Ferry with my friend Eva on October 31. Well worth the investment – perfect fall coat.

I also met Denise and Jennifer – this is a picture I took of them in line before I met them later right before signing with the authors:

After we got our tickets we were assigned a group and a time to return for the book signing. I took advantage of the great shops in Boonsboro and went shopping at Gifts Inn Boonsboro to start its right next door to Turn The Page Bookstore Cafe and here are some highlights of what I found in that excellent shop:

I hope if you ever get the chance you’ll attend a Nora Roberts’ Book Signing event – Boonsboro is a great place to shop, see the Civil War sites (Harper’s Ferry is just 18 miles away) and climb South Mountain and see the beginning of the Appilacian North Trail and the Washington monument that resides in Maryland here are some sights to see:

Thanks everyone at Boonsboro MD – you all made me feel welcome like an old friend.  This post took more time than I thought it would so my review of “Blood Magick,” Nora Roberts latest best seller, will follow next week.  Peace.
