I went to Nashville with four other member of Southern Indiana Writers to do a book signing at The Book Loft for our GHOSTS: ON THE SQUARE…AND ELSEWHERE, the anthology we put together for Corydon, Indiana’s 200th birthday (this year) Halloween Ghost Walk.

Our waitress, Nikki, SAID she was going to come to the signing, BUT SHE DIDN’T. BAD Nikki! BAD!!

We had a fine signing and good day.
