Book Signing, by K.E. Creighton

Natalia felt like she was in a surreal dream. It was only a few months ago that she was sitting at the tiny plastic table she had set up in the living room of her apartment writing this trilogy she was now signing copies of in one of the most renowned bookstores in Manhattan. She had been laid off unexpectedly one week before she started writing them, needing an outlet for the rejection and hopelessness she felt. And then ended up writing all the books in the trilogy in less than a month, writing them as if her life depended on writing them. And in a way, it did.

Now, here she was signing dozens of copies of the first book in the trilogy she wrote, which was also bound with lovely abstract cover art she couldn’t stop staring at. She had just read the first chapter of it aloud to this same crowd that was now standing in line in front of her, and still couldn’t believe they had applauded when she finished reading– real, proper applause of admiration.

Some of the people in line wanted photos taken of her and with her, which she couldn’t quite understand. But she took them anyway. It also helped that everyone was so kind and patient.

When the book signing was over, Natalia rushed home to write. The event and personal conversations she had with her readers sparked what could potentially be her next book idea.
