Facebook For Dummies LIVE

March 4, 2008

Tonight was author Carolyn Abram’s signing at the White Plains NY Barnes & Noble.  It wasn’t an ordinary evening for me for many reasons.  First, we don’t do many book signings in tech.  For the most part, outside of celebrity authors like a Kevin Mitnick or key locations like Seattle and Silicon Valley, tech books tend not to draw a crowd.  However, Carolyn pulled a nice group of people, and she wasn’t related to all of them.  Second, due to many difficulties with NYC transit, Mr IT was detoured and I had to bring Little IT and IT Boy to the signing.  I kept asking where that whiny kid came from, only to be told he belonged to me.  Oh well, it was late for him to be out, and he really was a trouper. 

I was thrilled to meet Carolyn.  She’s got a great rep among the editorial staff in Indy.  She was pleasant and very thrilled to be a first time author.  Her family in attendance was just beaming with pride, as cliched as that sounds.   She was quite gracious with Little IT, who was so thrilled to meet an author who used to go to her school.  I think she got that she had the opportunity to be a role model for a little girl, and she ran with it.  For that, I am so grateful.  After that, Little IT kept asking how she could be an author someday.  All in all, it was a great night and I hope Carolyn enjoys every moment of being a published author!

Oh, and if you want to see pictures, you’re going to have to go to Facebook.  Normally, I would double post on smugmug, but this time, it only seems right to house them there.

    Hi Patricia, Carolyn is great and I was thrilled to meet her. I have a copy of the book if you want to create your own FB page. I bet yours would rival your boys pages!
