So, last week, I dropped in to see Richard Frost at Frost's Book Store. He agreed to take a couple of copies of All in the Half-Vampire Family to sell, and he was pleased with my bookmarks. He took a stack to give away at the cash register, and he let me put a free bookmark in all his YA vampire books in the store (well, I refused to put bookmarks in Twilight books, of course).
Then, he moved Half-Vampire Family AND Confessions of an Average Half-Vampire to his current "local authors" table display. Thus, for right now, my books are keeping company with the Junior League cook book (Salt To Honey) and Walking Salt Lake City.
And then I discovered that in our own school library, I'm a "featured author." The librarian has framed a photo of me with my Amazon author bio. He's put this with copies (8 of them!) of Half-Vampire Family -- and for reasons unknown to me, a black rose -- on an end table in the comfy-chair reading only section of the library.
Okay, it's not much. But these things make me feel warm and fuzzy. :)
