Book signing was a success

Hosted by Jennifer Huffman at Richmond Wellness Center, we had the intimate book signing event I was hoping for. Fifteen at first, and then seventeen people later, joined us as I spoke and then had a worthwhile discussion with group members. A small group offered the opportunity to really catch up.

Then two people showed up randomly who thought that Richmond First Friday was being held at the location. First Friday is an event where artistic and creative shop owners keep their stores open on the first Friday of the month.

These two thought it was an art gallery. We welcomed them in and I said I had art but it was in the form of a book. I asked if they wanted to buy one? The man, Jackie, was from France and he said, “Maybe.” The woman meandered back there as well as I chatted with two attendees.

I walked back there a few minutes later and the man, Jackie, told me his mother died by suicide in 1981. On New Year’s Eve. The other woman was an LCSW, a licensed social worker. And both of them bought books.

We did a lot of chatting and I sold a lot of books. The support was amazing and I appreciate Jennifer for hosting the event in her lovely space. So should you need affordable space, consider Richmond Wellness Center.

My safetTALK training at the end of the month is at Richmond Wellness Center. And if you have been wanting to get certified for being a life coach, here is their next event.
