After this, I asked Carla to stop filming me while I had chocolate in my mouth and to take at least one picture of me where I look like a Serious Author. That's superauthor Debra Webb looking at me and thinking, "I cannot believe I am signing books next to this person."
1. Do not invite good friends to your booksignings.
2. Do not allow them to bring cameras.
3. Do not place a big bowl of chocolate on your table in front of your books to entice readers, because you will eat it.
4. Do place a large sign on your table that says BATHROOM: THAT WAY, with an arrow.
