Signing at Cafe du Livre, Morocco

On Thursday, June 18, I had my first book reading and signings in Marrakesh, Morocco sponsored by the friendly folks at the Cafe du Livre. The signings went well and I sold several books, which I have heard is great on the first instance. I was not sure how long to read for, but a fellow author in the audience mentioned that 10 minutes is about right. After a short introduction, followed by a reading, and then a Q&A session, it was mostly over. The questions were varied and one of the hardest ones dealt with the ethics behind writing such a story, which I hoped I answered well enough. Following, a few patrons purchased two books, one for themselves and another for a friend, so that is great. Then, a friendly couple who own a riad in the medina invited me for a drink. The Cafe du Livre now has 25 signed copies for sale, so get yours today! I would like to extend my gratitude to the folks at Cafe du Livre for their support and willingness; they have hosted several prominent authors in the past and it was an honor to be their guest.
