DarkissReads' first Book signing!
Last week I had the pleasure and opportunity to attend a book signing for the author of Shadow Fox & Fox Rising, Ashley J Barnard. The event was held in Davis Ca, in a quaint little book store called the Avid Reader. This was my very first book signing and I wasn't sure what to expect. I arrived promptly at 7:30 walking into a very elegant event! The book signing was held towards the back of the store with plenty of seating and to top it off Wine and Cheese! This reader was in heaven...what more could I ask for?? Oh that's right.......and autographed book!
Ashley Barnard was in her element. Poised and very gracious she welcomed each guest with genuine enthusiasm. Ashley gathered us all around for a very intimate reading from her book Shadow Fox. She then indulged her fans to a question and answer session, and her fans rallied to the occasion and asked some very good questions. We were even blessed with a few stories about Ashley as a little girl from her aunt, as well as lots of laughs from the women in the audience enamored by the male models on her book covers,and requests that the models attend the next book signing. This one on one with Ashley Barnard gave us insight into her mind as an author and person.
It was a very special evening for me as well, Ashley is family. It was great to see and be a part of her success in achieving her dream of becoming an author. Congrats Ashley!!
And now I have my signed copy of Fox Rising to add to my book collection!
We are looking forward to the third book of the Shadow Fox series "Night of the Fox" to be released in September of this year.
