I’ve learned two things about myself over the past two days: 1. I’m a bit of a flake. And, 2. I’m never satisfied.
Well, OK, I suppose I knew those things all along, but they were completely solidified during this trip. Let me explain…
I was so focused on not flashing my Spanx on the Today Show and all of the other events during the day, that I completely neglected to promote that I had a reading at Barnes and Noble at 7PM. At all.
We arrived at 6:45 and the room was empty. Like, completely empty. Literally. When I peeked out at 6:55, there were exactly two people in the crowd. They were in their eighties, had no idea who I was and were obviously just looking for a quiet place to sit. Way to go, Jill!
Fortunately, a few other people trickled in and I wasn’t stuck solely talking to grandparents not belonging to me. Thank God. But, it made me realize that it might be helpful to remind you of where I’ll be appearing in the future. Otherwise, I might end up having to just tour retirement communities instead of bookstores.
