Bookstore Visit (and Wendy the Famous Author)

As some of you will know, “Wendy in Editorial” is actually Wendy McClure. She’s a senior editor here at Albert Whitman & Company, but she is also an author…with a book for “big people” out this month entitled The Wilder Life (Riverhead). She’s been touring the Midwest and on Friday evening, several of us went to cheer her on at the Book Stall in Winnetka, IL. The Book Stall is one of the great indies that Chicagoland is so lucky to have. They get tons of authors — so be sure to check out their upcoming schedule.

I arrived early so I could look around the children’s department. Look how many copies of The Buddy Files they had on the shelves!  That, my friends, is “we expect to sell these babies” quantities.

But then on to the main event…

Wendy was wonderful and the crowd was fun.  We made butter!

The Wilder LifeAnd I bought my own copy of the book (and another for a gift)…because friends and family PAY for books. A reminder out there, real friends don’t ask for free copies.

Oh, and The Wilder Life is currently #130 at Amazon!

    And that Famous Author pulled the author of the Buddy Files out of the slush pile almost 10 years ago!
