Loved the Piper too – special for this book signing event. He is a Piper for Hire contact him at firstname.lastname@example.org
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:
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.
Coat from Harper’s Ferry visit – thanks much Eva for a wonderful day on October 31 enjoyed every moment
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:
Hat from Harper’s Ferry Free Trade Shop
Shelf for coats found at Olde Homestead great place to shope in Boonsboro MD

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:
Anne Barton on the left – I’ll be getting her book soon
Cara Connelly thanks the smile and the signature
Brenda Novak’s husband took this picture
Kristian is a lovely lady so glad she was at the book signing with Nora at Turn The Page Bookstore Cafe
A new author, Patricia Donohoe – writing about an ancestor from the Civil War fascinating story. Enjoyed our talk as she signed my book.
Nora Roberts and I great moment for me – I love all her books and her ability to bring characters to life. My thanks to Laura – Nora’s PR & Social Media expert thanks for a great picture.
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.
