A Public Appearance

I don't do many public appearances. It's because I'm a recluse. And I covet my privacy. And I'm part hermit. And...well, I don't get invited to anything. That last one is probably the main reason, now that I think about it.

However, all of this is about to change, at least for one saturday afternoon. I will be making a public appearance on May 30th, from 12:00 until 3:00 PM at the Maceys in Providence, Utah. Actually, I make a public appearance there at least twice a week, meaning I go out in public, and I 'appear' at that store. But since I cleverly blend in buy buying groceries, nobody realizes the guy rifling through family-sized packs of back bacon is really a celebrity. And they leave me alone. All...alone.

But, as I was saying, all this changes on the 30th. People will know I'm a celebrity. I'll be sitting behind a table. And I'll have books on that table. And I will be striking poses that will convince anybody in the area that I'm an author who has sold dozens, if not several dozens, of books.

So, if you're shopping, come on by and talk to me. If you're not shopping, come on by and talk to me too. I'll be the guy at the table, looking like a hermit.

Marion, you crack me up. Just to cheer you up, it's probably your 4 or 5 boys and the fear of them breaking things, not you. At least, that's what I tell myself when I'm not invited places. :)
I'll try and make it down on the 39th with all your adoring fans (You might want your wife there with pepper spray).

I meant 30th. Keys are too close.

Yes, I'm still here. You need to add a followers icon. Now. Dangit Marion, do as I say--
Oh sorry. I'm in "nagging wife mode."

Where are my rotten tomatoes? Time to warm up my pitching arm. Hrm, I wonder if I can reach you from Massachusetts?

And this is just getting back at you because you saw Star Trek on Thursday night last week. I had to wait till Friday. :(
