Well, there's no use crying over spilled milk, so FruHo is going to the book-signing. As she's pretty excited about it.
Except for one little thing. FruHo has never been to a book-signing before.
Seriously, calm down. It's not that big of a deal. Shhhh.
Um, alright, yeah it is. TFH loves to read and thinks writers are rock stars. She knelt over F. Scott Fitzgerald's grave in Maryland and rubbed graphite across his tombstone (to make a rubbing, not to make it dirty), while a priest scowled at her. Her heart went pitter-pat when she was introduced to Hollis Gillespie. And she has a long list of future cat names derived from her favorite novels. So, yeah, it's ridiculous that she hasn't been to a book-signing.
And, like a young child who never learns to swim, she wonders if it's too late to have her first experience. Like, how do you act? Is it weird to go by yourself? Do you tell the writer that you love her work, or do you act like you're just there for the cookies? Should you bring a copy of the book that looks like it's been read already, or should you buy a book at the hosting store? You guys, what should FruHo do????
The Frugal Hostess is kind of nervous about this book-signing, so please give her some advice. You can also join the Frugalistas on Facebook for exclusive content, follow on Twitter @frugalhostess, or subscribe so that you always know when a new post appears.
