Book Signing Update
Well, as I had hoped, the book signing was rather sedate. In fact, other than a few dozen people strolling in to chat, and some of those to buy the book, it was pretty quiet. The store manager had a table for me, with chairs set up for an audience at the opening, (and a presentation.) But there was no need for the chairs.
Over the three hours, I think I signed fifteen books...not a lot, but more than I thought would sell, given that it was a book of politically Conservative theme cartoons, in the notoriously liberal town of Boulder, (and also considering that I was not the book's author, but simply the illustrator hired by the publisher.)
Update: (9/7) Pelican Publishing contacted me today, saying that the Colorado Springs Barnes & Noble would like me to do a book signing in December. Barnes & Noble colorado-springs-co/signing The community is a great deal more Conservative than Boulder, and the book store is guessing it would have a sizable appetite for the book's themes. I initially turned it down, but the publisher convinced me to schedule a day in early December. It should be fun, and besides, Colorado Springs is beautiful in Dec...(I can take the family to the Broadmoor, ride the Pikes Peak Christmas train, etc.)
