Book Signing in Georgetown, Texas - Hill Country Book Store.
If you've never visited the quaint town of Georgetown, Texas, you've missed out. It's just down the road from me on I 35 and we pass through on our way to Austin and San Antonio. I've always wanted to stop, but seems we're always in a hurry. I even set my heroine in Investment of the Heart, Hallie Barron, in Georgetown. Hallie is a widow and owns a dress shop on the square called Stepping Up.
The square surrounds a historical courthouse and is lined with a variety of shops with something for all ages. If you visit, don't look for Stepping Up though, as it's from my imagination only. Not interested in shopping, then just walk the square and study the architecture of these old buildings. That's a treat in itself. Have lunch or dessert in one of the cafes. Visit Hill Country Book Store and browse the shelves. Stop in at Georgetown's Winery and sample their products. I couldn't imagine liking chocolate cherry port but came home with a bottle. It's their Jubilee Reserve. Delicious!
Saturday November 21, 2009, was my first visit to historic Georgetown. I was fortunate enough to have a book signing at Hill Country Book Store, a privately owned bookstore that is reminisant of the neighborhood book stores of our past. Owner Margarite Holt and her staff will make you feel welcome and help you discover that special book you're looking for. She has an excellent selection of children's reading material, excellent stocking stuffers for the little ones in your family.
Here is a picture of Margarite (on the right) and Linda, one of her staff members (on the left). Thank you ladies for making me feel welcome and my book signing comfortable.
What a surprise to see my good friend Melanie and her daughter Katy. Thank you for coming. I look forward to hearing how you liked the books you bought.
I will have another signing at Hill Country Book Store soon. Watch my blog and website for the date. If you're in the area stop by and say hello.
