That Time We Sold Out…

vromansYou can say a lot of things about Cass and I.  We’re brilliant and funny and obsessed with cats to name a few.  But you can’t say we overly self promote ourselves; considering I’m seven months late telling you all about a really wonderful book signing we did here in Pasadena, CA.

September 24, 2017

Vroman’s Bookstore in Pasadena is a historic local shop that is notorious for supporting artists from the community.  I have loved Vroman’s since I moved here in 1998.

After our mountain-top experience for our book launch at 4 Sydney Place in Bath, England, we always had the intention of doing something on my side of the pond.  After some research and communication with Vroman’s, we decided a book signing there would be ideal.  And then… well, obviously… we’d need a party afterwards.

As excited as we were to plan another visit together and celebrate The Particular Charm of Miss Jane Austen with our friends and family, we were not overtly excited about the presentation portion of the book signing evening.  Cass had a list of diseases she planned to use to get out of it, but I promised her that there would only be four people in the audience and that we’d be back at my house for the party in no time (she had no problem with the party portion of the plan).

Well, we had a few more than four people in the audience.  And we were surprised to get a solid slate of questions from them.  While we did have a good set of people that were there to support us because they knew us, there were quite a few from the public too.

Thank you to my mom for the food and help, for Megan for taking photos for us and everyone for the support!  We will endeavor to be slightly quicker to update Tabbycow the next time something exciting happens!

Cheers!

  1. Sounds like it was a lot of fun and congrats on selling out. Thanks for sharing it with us Ada. Mind you, in the same situation (as I’m something of a Darcy personality) I’d probably be a bit like Cass and have a whole list of medical reasons to get out of it. A favourite reason for not doing something in our family when I was growing up, was always “I’ve got a bone in my leg!”
