I have never been to a book signing event. I have, however, seen the occasional author modestly sitting at a table in the PX (military people, you know what I mean–for those of you who don’t, it’s kind of the Walmart of the military base), somewhat shyly peddling their new book. The look on their faces was always the same: uncertain anxiety, on the verge of completely deflated because no one notices them, never mind stops to check out their book.
The Paleo Parents, Stacy and Matt’s book release and signing event for Beyond Bacon was the exact OPPOSITE. When I arrived, just 20 minutes after things kicked off, The Red Apron was packed. I could barely even get in the door. The Paleo Parents have been a big force not just in the paleosphere, but in our own real food journey–we’ve made many friends at their gatherings and it’s really helped us step up our cooking and blogging acumen.
