Angela and I dropped by the local Chapters for a meeting with manager K.Z. We were early, so Angela had fun putting my book up on the shelf of the travel section to see what it would look like if it were there for real. I then moved it beside Michael Palin's new travelogue, and we shot more pictures! Great fun.
There is a Starbucks in the store so we then had some tasty hot drinks until K.Z. joined us. K.Z. was extremely enthusiastic and explained that if she liked the book (which she thought she would), they would then host a book signing event. If that went well, she would fill out a report to the chain's head office, and then I could get "Travels in a Blue Chair" into the entire chain countrywide!! Of course, it all hinges on this weekend, when she is off, and she will be reading the book....here's hoping! Thanks Angela and K.Z. !
The tape of yesterday's appearance on Breakfast Television is hopefully going to be converted to digital format by my friend and uploaded to YouTube by next week.
What an exciting week!!
