Betty Auchard at Recycle + Big Day at Rec Table + Queen Sugar News

1st of all, it's always a pleasure to have Betty Auchard around.  Today she signed books at Recycle during the Farmers Market.  She had all 3 of her books there - The Home for the Friendless, Dancing in My Nightgown, and, the latest, Living with Twelve Men.  She had a good crowd, and I was happy to meet her daughter, Renee.  Here are a few pics.

Betty is with Alfred Jan, who will be at this same table on Sunday, August 7

We also had a big day at the rec table.  The book count is now 80!  And I sold 9 books off the table today.  Okay, 5 were bought by Betty and Renee.  But, still - 9!  Here's what they were:

A Man Called Ove (2)
Child 44
Queen Sugar
Pillars of the Earth (top 3 all-time)
The Language of Flowers (top 12 all time)
All the Light We Cannot See
Goodnight June (4/4+)

And here's what those 80 books look like:

You do see Josh's book front and center, don't you?

We've got dates now for the world premier of Queen Sugar on the OWN.  The 1st 2 episodes are on September 6 and 7 at 10:00PST (I don't know if that makes EST 7:00 or 10:00 - sorry).  To see some previews, go on Search Facebook and enter Queen Sugar. When you see a white box with the words Queen Sugar on it, click on that.  That will give you all of the information you will want to prepare you for watching the show.  There are previews as well as interviews.  It's really very cool.


  1. I can tell Recycle is your second home. Keep selling those books!

    1. Thanks. I know how lucky I am to have a bookstore that is willing to buy the books that I want to recommend.

  2. Thanks for all you do for writers, Lloyd! Your book table always makes me smile.
