Reflection: Book Signing and Presentation at The Book Stall in northern Chicago

Busy signing books at The Book Stall in northern Chicago
The second book presentation and signing for my sci-fi/fantasy novel, Dark Legacy: Book I - Trinity, was held at The Book Stall in Winnetka, Illinois (a northern Chicago suburb) on Saturday, July 30th. The event was organized by my mother and sister who worked diligently in promoting the presentation to as many friends and family as possible. As a result we had around sixty people in attendance and we sold every single copy The Book Stall had in stock.

It had been two years since I was back in the United States (the longest I have ever been away from the country of my birth), and back to my home town of Wilmette. It was a great pleasure to return with my family and present my literary work in Winnetka, which is the town where I went to high school. Although I was nervous before the event, once I got started I had a lot of fun discussing the themes, history, and stories behind the book. But the best part of the presentation was the excellent range of questions I had from the audience.

Two amazing friends filmed the presentation and book signing using high definition cameras, and as a result I have already uploaded the presentation as a four part video onto the YouTube channel for The Legacy Cycle at http://www.youtube.com/thelegacycycle. Check it out and share them with all your sci-fi/fantasy reading friends!

With magic,
