Today was the first day of the Pirate Festival, and I am exhausted. Last night, Brian and I went up to Milton to set up the tent. In the rain. This morning An and I went up and did the rest of the set up, and we were off!
It was great to see so many familiar faces from last year as both actors and vendors were back. It felt like a real reunion.
Sales wise, I think we did well for a first day. Now all we have to do is keep it up!
Today I also did my first live reading from my book The Strings of the Violin. I was so nervous. It's one thing to read a script or sing a song that someone else wrote. It's quite another to perform your own words. It feels so much more nerve-wracking. I felt I was being judged on content as well as performance. But it helped to have my kids there. They provided a nice distraction from the rest of the audience.
Yesterday I also received my round of copy edits for Sitnalta, and I spent some time going through them. I have a real good feeling about this one and can't wait to see it in print!
