Kay Haugaard Autographs

Yesterday, we also flew Kay Haugaard, the author of The Day the Dragon Danced, up from LA to the NCIBA trade show for her author signing. This is the first time we had ever met, despite working with her for two years already on her book! I suppose the internet and electronic communications makes this more and more common. On the one hand, it's great that we can work with people all over the world easily, but on the other hand, it's sad that sometimes we'll produce an entire project, an absolutely amazing work of art, and never meet.

At any rate, we were very happy to see each other for the first time. There was a line waiting for Kay at five minutes to one, when her signing was to start, and within half an hour, all 64 copies of The Day the Dragon Danced were gone. She kept saying that it was quite an experience, to have so many people clamoring for your book all at once. And that's another reason I love the NCIBA trade show.
