It’s nearly 10:00 pm, and I just returned home from my book signing at the Houma Books-A-Million. Thankfully, it was another sell-out. I signed and sold every book the store had ordered. Once again the manager was very pleased. I think I’ve got something good going on with BAM stores.
In addition to earning some royalties, I made numerous contacts and some future appointments for me to go to places to present my various programs. I was fascinated with the strong economy in South Louisiana. The people were friendly, and the many who talked to me were genuinely interested in my book, Jim Limber Davis: A Black Orphan in the Confederate White House. I met some more true Cajuns, and was delighted with their unique accents. I met the second Islenos woman I’ve ever met in my life, and like the first I met, she too was very beautiful and full of life. I’ve been invited back to the store when my Stories of the Confederate South comes out, so I’ll have another signing there in October or November. Much more to tell, but I’ll save it for a time when I’m not so tired.
