I’ve seen signings on CSPAN’s BookTV where someone opens the book to the right place and slides it in front of the author’s pen as they try to keep a long line of buyers moving past the author. Our book signing for Christine and Tom Sine last night at Chapters Books and Coffee wasn’t like that. But the authors and three of us from Barclay Press and Chapters sat together enjoying rich interaction that would not have otherwise happened. And whether by providence or by design the hour included other reconnecting as people stopped at the table.

Selling books is how we make a living in the publishing industry, but it is through the sharing of ideas and ideals that we find life.
