So last night I got Jennifer Love Hewitt's new book, stood in line for an hour or so, and got it signed. I'm going to be listing it on eBay this weekend to raise funds for the epilepsy bracelets, which I need to order veryvery soon! I would list the book this morning, but I'm rushing to get ready for a short film screening in Burbank (otherwise known as Far Far Away) today. I wasn't nominated for anything, but it should be fun anyway!
Back on topic! If you want to know about the book, The Day I Shot Cupid, this is it.
I haven't read it, but intend to read a bit before I ship it off to the highest bidder.
I have to say, I learned a lot about book signings last night. I mean, someday I want to finish the book I started on losing a step-child (there are no books out there! Does anyone want to collaborate with me?), and I'm sure book signings come with the territory. Last night worked like a well-oiled machine. In a bad way. It was like going down a slip-n-slide. The line moved quickly, she signed the book and the next person was sent right over. I think the most disappointing thing was that we weren't allowed to get photos with her (would have been soooo great to post on Facebook for all the people who keep telling me "you know who you look like...?" I even got it at the birthday party I attended right after the book signing). I've never been to another book signing, but I thought it was a time where you actually got a little time with the author. The only book I have signed is Audrey Hepburn Treasures, and that's because I know one of the authors. Anyway... it was a bit of a let-down but I did get the book signed, and I'm hoping to get a little money from it to pay for more bracelets. The walk is coming up in a month, and I'd hate to miss it.
In other news, I'm going back to Paris this summer (with 2 weeks in Hungary with Habitat for Humanity in July) and gearing up to shoot a little web series. I know that has nothing to do with anything here, but I'm excited about it and want everyone to check it out when it's done!
Stay tuned for my next post! I'll have a link to the auction!
