Tonight’s the night! The last Hollows event, though you know you can always bring your Hollows questions and books to my future events. (We’re aiming at a September 1st, 2015 release for the next, non-Hollows adventure.)
But tonight, it is all about Rachel, Trent, Al, Jenks, Ivy, and the rest of the Hollows gang. I’ve been in touch with the people at Nicola’s, and they have told me that due to the large size of the event, they are going to close the store at 5:30 to set up, and then re-open at 6:15–so don’t panic if you get there and it looks closed. There’s a library just to the left of them, and a Starbucks in the next shopping area at the grocery store. (Just saying . . .)
Bring your tomatoes! This is a designated tomato stop. :-)
Dress up as your favorite Hollows character! We’re having a contest with prizes.
There will be wine tasting, cookie eating, temporary tattooing, book-tote giving, and yes, the Q&A.
If there are enough takers, I’ll even have a few passages from the book “scripted” out, and we’ll have YOU GUYS do a mini-script reading with other Hollows-minded people.
I’ll even have a basket of milkweed seeds to give away. Yep. My monarch milkweed set seed, and if you have a scrap of sunny yard, you can take some seeds to help the Monarchs. If you have a farm, you can take an entire pod! They might not set seed the first year, but hang in there. Mine didn’t.)
If you have called Nicolas for your free ticket, there will be a table at the front of the store to pick them up. It’s one ticket per person so we can keep track for the fire codes, so if your plans have changed and you’ve got more people in your party, give Nicola’s a call NOW! There are a few tickets left.

If you are still looking for a personalize book by mail, we will try to accommodate, but no promises at this late date. I usually only do signed books after my last event at Nicolas, but this is the last place that you can get one signed to you, and I know life interferes sometime. ( how to order a signed book )
The store is terriably excited about needing to close the store for the event, but it means that the only sales they will make that night will come from you. (Psst! Christmas is coming, and if they don’t sell books, anyone’s books, not just mine, while I’m closing their store, they won’t have me back for this size of an event again.
I think that’s it unless I forgot something. Hope to see some of you there!
