First reading done!
This is a picture of Michael Havelin, author of the Ben Bones series, and me at our first reading. There were about 7 people in the audience, which was a good number for my first event. I wasn't insanely nervous. I didn't plan much, thinking that I would interact with the audience, if there was one. Oops. Not the best plan.
I am a quiet audience member myself. I don't jabber at the speaker...not sure why I expected that to happen. So now I need a plan for the next one.
Thanks to David Pereda for stopping by and giving me some advice.
And thanks to Jim Weikart for filming it. It's very weird watching myself, but helpful!
I'm learning and things will only get better!
