We arrived at the bookstore at 10 a.m. and met
at the Mad Hatter Cafe downstairs for socializing, sharing gifts, signing books etc.
Mel, Vina, Nessa and Norma. Norma is holding the lovely tartan address books that Marti
made for each of us. Norma painted beautiful candle holders with thistle, dragonflies etc.
Ann, Marti, Amy, Tracy and Leaha. Murthog and Hammie are on the table. (Atleast they
aren't "under" it!)
At about 2:00, Tom introduced "Herself". He told us that he
had contemplated getting up there and saying "Hi, I'm Jamie Fraser". I don't think anyone
would have fallen for it. No offense, Tom! We love ya! The woman on the right is Margaret Campbell.
Diana got to know her on Compuserve and Margaret, is the inspiration for the chicken head biting Priestess
Diana talked for about 40 min. about how she got started writing and how she ended up
being published. Diana then took questions from the crowd and read an excerpt from
"Fiery Cross". I have one word for you.."sperms"! Then it was time for the signing
of books...and look who had #1..Mary!
After the signing, the group proceeded across the street to "George's Garage" for lunch.
