Ice cream social

Dale Langlois Who is the Beave?

Recently, I was asked to do a signing as a local author to establish a new library in a tri town area. I accepted, although I would have to juggle sleep and work. As a newbie to the promoting part of this business, I explore every avenue. How can I turn down ice cream?
When I asked why I was invited, I was told it was a petition signing to get a new library.
‘Great way to promote my book’, I thought. But, when I looked at¬†the bigger picture. My book would be only one book upon thousands of others to choose from for the youth of the area. Wouldn’t my support of this dream of a library lead to the betterment of mankind in a small way?
Sometimes I buy ice-cream on the way to work anyway, but this day…who knows?
