This went pretty much as I expected. Didn't sell a ton of books, but I got to talk to some new people who had not read my stuff before, and that person-to-person thing sometimes seems like the only sure way to build a readership. One reader at a time...this one may try a book and not like it, but the next one or the one after that might enjoy it and become a regular reader. All we can do is write 'em, try to let people know they're out there, and hope that they're good enough to keep the readers coming back.
And, of course, I got to see a bunch of friends, which was fun.
By the time we got home I was so tired from being "on" all day that I was perfectly content watching Gigante Sabado on TV. It didn't seem to matter that I didn't understand a word that was being said, because I wasn't too sure I could understand English, either. And the show had amateurs singing badly until they were picked up and carried off-stage by a guy in a lion suit. Another guy in a gorilla suit (with armor) brought them on, accompanied by a woman in armor who may have been another gorilla--I couldn't quite tell. The host wore a goofy hat. What could be better?
