Gone From These Book Signing at Athens Borders a Success!

I had my first bookstore signing event at the Athens Borders, Sunday, August 30, and by all accounts it was a great success. We SOLD ALL THE BOOKS! I suppose that's the ultimate test of any book signing event.

Of course I was a bit nervous when the event first began. But soon I was reading from GONE FROM THESE WOODS and answering questions, then signing books and visiting. I stayed there over two hours, chatted with everyone, signed probably 100 books, if you count the ones brought in from other places, and enjoyed every minute.

Afterwards, we headed out to the historic Winterville train depot on the square for cake and food and more visiting. I couldn't have asked for a better day and I really appreciate everyone who was a part of it.


  1. CONGRATULATIONS Donny on the publication of your book Gone From These Woods! I can't wait to read it. I'm a librarian (and writer, and artist) at Leeds Public Library in Alabama. We will certainly be getting a copy of your book for circulation. I'm so excited and happy for you.

  2. Thanks, Ramey! I hope to come to Alabama at some point. Donny
