I Sold My First Book

first-book-sold

I mentioned last week that I’d post the picture and the name of the first person to buy a copy of The Colorful Characters of St. Louis from me. The winner is (drum roll) Julie Hearnes Sindelar. She hosted an adult education class at Ladue Chapel Presbyterian Church where I spoke Sunday about one of my earlier books, The Making of an Icon: The Dreamers, The Schemers, and The Hard Hats Who Built The Gateway Arch.

I’ve asked Julie to come to my book release party, from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2, at the Royale, 3132 S. Kingshighway Blvd., so I can introduce her. I’ll be selling plenty more, through my website, at the release party and at various signings and programs. You can find out more about the signings,¬† programs and website sales through pages of jimmerkelthewriter.com. Of course, you also can buy stores and through the internet.

However you do it, buy!
