Day One: Bella Y Tour Ft. Lauderdale

Our first event in Florida was a meet and greet and a signing at the New Moon Bar. En route, a torrential downpour made getting there a little challenging but we finally found a place to park and made our way in without getting completely soaked. And, at last, I saw my book:

I met a bunch of people who came out to see us and made my first sale. Here’s the evidence:
And then I signed:

It was surreal to see the book and I felt strangely stunned.

I met many lovely people who came out to see us, some from great distances And I made my first sale. Here’s the evidence:

If you’re ever in Ft. Lauderdale, do check out the New Moon. It’s a cool bar and the staff was great to us. Here’s Madonna watching over our spread of hors d’oeurves:

And they had this cool poster in the ladies room:

It wasn’t as warm and sunny in Florida as we’d hoped:

But considering we were able to escape the Snowpocalypse for a few days it was divine:

  1. Thanks for the photographs, Amy. I’ve started reading your book the last night of the cruise. Had to put it down because they were kicking us off the boat. Otherwise, I would have read it straight to the end. That good. Kudos. Great job, Amy. Now I can’t wait for your next book! Get busy writing.


    1. Hi Kat — so glad you’re liking it — wish I could have joined you all on the cruise. I’m doing a blog post here for each day I was in Ft. L — I have a great pic of us on Day 3 (Sunday) that shows off the gorgeous necklace you made — soon to come!

  2. I should get off the computer and finish reading your book. But I don’t want to come to the end yet!

    Thanks for the compliment on the necklace. I didn’t toil over making it nearly as long as you toiled over writing Miles to Go. What a great debut book.


    1. Thanks, Kat! It would be nice to be able to create something to completion in a shorter amount of time — maybe I should try the haiku. 😉
