I had a great time on Sunday (September 19) at the Book Beat in Oak Park, MI for the first public event for Impossibly Funky. I had a massive turn-out. Eleven people! And I either knew 10 of them directly or indirectly. Yeah, it was huge. But, in all seriousness, I really had a lot of fun. My host, Cary Loren, really knew his stuff.
Rather than doing a reading (which is what I had in mind that I'd be doing), Cary sat down next to me and just asked me questions about the book and the history behind it, giving me an opportunity to just jaw on about my favorite subject; me. I don't think I made too big of a fool of myself, saw some friends, and sold some books. That's more than I could have hoped for!
Thanks to everyone who made it out. It was kind of a huge deal for me and has managed to put me more at ease about the idea of doing more book events.
