This coming weekend is my own personal kickoff for my book, and what better place to do it than in the area where it's set. If you're going to be anywhere near the Sunset Beach NC area this coming weekend (or you're just looking for an excuse to get away to the beach), please come out and see me at one of my book events! Here's where I will be this Thursday through Monday:
Thursday July 12, 1-4: The Silver Coast Wine Shop, Southport NC, in conjunction with Pelican Books (Southport is where the new Nicholas Sparks movie, Safe Haven, is being filmed. If you come you can check out the filming! This town is C-U-T-E. And if you want a cool place to have dinner, try the Provision Company. I feel quite certain my family and I will eat there after. Their shrimp burgers are famous!)
Friday July 13, 11-1: The Salt Shaker Book Store, Wilmington NC. I'll be there during lunch so plan to have lunch at their delicious cafe while you're there! Also, word has it that the sculptor who created the real sculpture in the book will be there to meet as well!
Friday, July 13, 3-5: Quarter Moon Books, Topsail Beach, NC: Wander in off the beach and have a smoothie. (Their smoothies are delish!) Or come later and have a glass of wine at their new wine bar. I'm hopefully hitting both crowds.
Monday, July 16, 1-4: Pelican Books, Sunset Beach, NC: This is my favorite bookstore on earth. The women who work there have led me to more than a few of my all-time favorites for many years and it's always surreal to see one of my books on their shelves. I'll be signing in the store for anyone who's game to stop by.
Hope to see you at one of these locations. You might see me, and you might just see my family lurking around too, as we're turning this into a family getaway. I'm looking forward to it!
