Peabody Institute of Danvers Library Talk
I got there first, Chris and Phoebe stayed in the car. Mary-Ann came next and then Margaret made it with a minute to spare. . .literally. We had about 20-25 people show up. Then in the audience I spotted someone. My high school drill team buddy, Vicki! We hadn't seen each other in 34 years and discovered each other on Facebook recently. I was so excited!!
Us authors did our thing, talked about how we got into true crime, answered a lot of great questions from the audience, then waited for book sales. Not one person bought a book from any of us. Mary-Ann was the most shocked, LOL. I just kind of shrugged it off. Hey, I got paid to talk, albeit $75, but every dollar counts these days.
