Lordy, Lordy, SIBA’s 40!

I just asked somebody if today is Thursday.

I woke up this morning at 2:45 in anticipation of my 3:30 alarm. I’ve only shifted one time zone, but I’ve flown over and/or landed in 8 different states (and perhaps Puerto Rico), and now I’m sitting in a hotel bar waiting as my room is being prepared… all to attend the Southern Independent Bookseller’s Alliance 2015 Discovery Show in Raleigh, NC, celebrating SIBA’s 40th year.

I’m thrilled to have been invited to run a Hashtag Photo Booth and visit with booksellers about social networking. If you’re at SIBA, please swing by the photo booth to say hello, or feel free to stop me if you see me walking by.

Or–in fine literary tradition–join me in the bar!

You know, I just might have to write all of my Books & Whatnot pieces in a bar setting. The murmur is just like Coffitivity, but better. [grin]
