I received a reply from the indoor, winter farmers market:
First of all, congratulations on your publication! I'm just starting to dabble with writing and have tremendous respect for people already doing it.
Unfortunately, I don't think that Winter Market is a good match for your book signing. Winter Market is really focused on food and other consumable products (soaps and lotions, mostly). We've done this for 2 reasons: non-food items just don't sell well at our market. We're much smaller than the summer market and our customers are there for the food. Second, we're space constrained. We only have about 30 tables in our set up, and we fill them with food vendors every week.
However, I know that I've seen other authors selling their books at the summer Dubuque Farmers' Market. You should check in with Christine at Dubuque Main Street to see about their market (starts May 1 outside). I assume you've already hit up Sue Davis at River Lights?
Best of luck!
Another one bites the dust. I guess I’ll keep pounding the pavement until I come up with something. I can’t believe I lost out to tomatoes and homemade jam.
Mac and Cheese
Did you ever wonder what happens if you cook those little one-serving sized containers of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and accidently put the cheese in before you put it in the microwave? Let me tell you, it boils all over the inside of the microwave!
There are so many acronyms in the world today that monogrammed towels are becoming a thing of the past. When you buy a monogrammed towel the
first initial is first, the second initial is last and the last initial is second. So Tammy A. Maas would be TMA. There are hundreds of acronyms using those letters but most are not well known. My husband’s monogram would be: TMJ what does that make you think of? Jennifer Pricilla Clark would be JCP, Heather Marie Adamson would be HAM, David Anthony Nettles would be DNA, Francis Theodore
Anderson would be FAT, William Francis Thompson would be WTF, Stephanie Doris Thompson would be STD and Frank Louis Murphy would be FML. If you are invited to a wedding in the near future rethink the monogrammed towels. (Although it would be pretty funny to give FML towels.)
I’ve noticed lately that many of you have been receiving birthday cards from me that I didn’t send. I can’t access the program that’s doing this and I can’t read the cards I’m sending to you so I hope they say something nice. If anyone knows how I can kill this application, please let me know.
Have a happy Sunday passengers!
