Did you guys come to Barnes and Noble in Charlottesville for my book signing? No? Well, me either. See, there was no book signing. However, rumor had it otherwise. This is how things go down in my family:
I arrive back home at my parent’s house on Friday night. My mother tells me her sister called and asked why she didn’t tell her I’d written a book. Anyway, here is how the conversation proceeds.
Aunt: Well, you didn’t tell me Susan has a book signing.
Mom: What are you talking about?
Aunt: She has a book signing tomorrow at Barnes and Noble.
Mom: No, she doesn’t.
Aunt: Yes, she does at the Barnes and Noble in Charlottesville.
Mom: No, she would have told me if she did.
Aunt: Well, she has one tomorrow at 11:00.
Mom: Where did you hear this?
Aunt: Such and such (insert a cousin’s name here) told me it was on Facebook.
Mom: Well, it must have been a misunderstanding.
Aunt: No, she’s going to be at Barnes and Noble tomorrow at 11:00 for a book signing.
Sorry, I was a no show, but I think my cousins should inform me of where I’m supposed to be…
Now this is my actual Facebook post, “Ok, I didn’t know Barnes and Noble has my book listed…wonder if it’s in my local bookstore…ok, I’m pushing it on that one, but I can dream!” Now, how it got translated to a book signing I’ll never know.
And to think I always thought rumors were bad….this is one I wish was true! And again, apologies to all of you who showed up and missed me, lol!
