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:
I met many lovely people in the line. First was Becky pictured with me here:
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:
They also had hand painted silk scarfs, ear rings, hand made pottery by Turn the Page Bookstore Cafe Manager Janeen Solberg
Here’s what I bought:
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:
Here’s the best for last – my pictures with the authors my thanks to each and everyone for all the smiles, chatting about the books, Facebook posts, and genuinely enjoying the experience of meeting their fans:
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.
Thanks for sharing your trip and the fun time you had, Melissa! I am travelling in Tasmania with my brother at the moment. 😊. Have a happy day.
Hope you had safe travels, Maria. Finally getting back to my blog. I’ve been busy with end of year projects at work – takes a lot of time. Looking forward to pictures from your trip:)
Hi Melissa! Wishing you all good things in the New Year. My brother and I had a wonderful trip around Tasmania. The trip all went as planned and now it is good to be home. 😊.
All the best with your work projects. Everything I do with my computer takes a lot of time!
I still have a lot to learn about technology!
Been a while since I checked out my comments. Hoping all your travel went well and you’re having a good New Year as well. I’ve found what I’m passionate about in my personal life, reading and supporting the authors that make books possible. So I’ll be doing more with my blog – now leased from Word Press at melissablanchard62.com. I hope to inspire with my personal Life After 50 blog as well.
Computers are always changing, one of the things I love about them. I’ve found my passion at work too – helping to make patient safety easier to achieve with computers and the software that is developed for them. The more I know what my purpose is, the easier my work becomes. It’s really true – do what you love and you don’t work at all. Peace to you and yours and much success with your blog and finding your purpose in life. I’ve got to get over and see what’s new at mariabrinkley.wordpress.com
Hi Melissa. 😊. Glad you have found your passion with your blog and work. I have slowly been turning my blog into something that I really enjoy. I find posting once a week suits me best and my passion is drawing and painting.
Now that I have got my head around computer technology a bit I can use my computer to post artwork. 😊. Your Life After 50 blog sounds good.
Have a great week and thanks for visiting my blog.
