In my quest to arrange book signings, I have come across many venues. Bookstores, to be sure. Also libraries, book fairs, specialty boutique shops, restaurants, grocery stores, cooking schools, dinner parties, and food shows.
But perhaps one of the most unique venues of all was Rozi's Wine House in Lakewood.
Yesterday, I spent five hours signing books for those who attended Rozi's 17th Annual Wine & Beer Extravaganza. (And let me tell ya, it was surely more party than extravaganza!)
These weren't your ordinary book buyers either, mind you. These were fun-loving, wine-loving, and beer-loving people (all rolled into one) who have frequented this popular event for many years.
One of the chefs in my book, the uber-talented Jim Perko of the Cleveland Clinic Wellness Institute, was a featured attraction with his healthy samples of salad, salmon, scallops, and whole wheat pasta. What a blast we had, side-by-side, offering Rozi's customers something very enticing in two different ways: Jim -- his food, and me -- my book.
For all of you who attended and bought a book, thank you. I had a really great time and hope you did, too.
For all of you who missed it, don't fret. If you want to attend another of Rozi's events, just click here. And if you want to attend another of my events, just click here.
Either way, you'll have something to look forward to. Guaranteed.
Happy weekend, all!
