The Tin Roof Reading (Part II)

A huge thanks to everyone that came out to the Tin Roof last night. This is becoming a wonderful tradition for releasing Molly books and I very much look forward to part three!

For those of you too far away to attend, it was a cool scene. The bar had drink specials named after parts of the book. There was the “Molly Fyde,” a Miller High Life and a shot of the bartender’s choice, and a “Drenard,” which was an appropriate shade of blue. Most of the staff had read the first book, and some were delving into the second. Plenty of attendees had already read both books and were eager to discuss their favorite characters and various plot-points. All seemed very stoked to be there and were extremely complimentary of the series. It was extremely satisfying.

After milling around for an hour or so, my sister Mollie got up on stage and introduced me to the crowd. I went up and read the prologue from book two, which seemed to go over very well. It was weird to hear so much applause afterward. You just don’t expect to hear that as a writer (at least, I sure don’t).

Overall, the night went great. Several people bought t-shirts. Everyone had a great time. I can’t wait to come back in the summer to do it again!

What an awesome experience. So glad Molly’s story is getting out there and so appreciative for Mollie who has helped so much to set some of these shindigs up!
