|Beth Macy reading from the introduction to her new book, "Truevine" at Barnes & Noble today.|
|Beth and I chat.|
A substantial number of fans showed up to hear her chat, read and sign books and to do a little hobnobbing.
I just finished proofreading my story for the January/February Roanoker magazine about Beth and four other big-time Roanoke authors (Roland Lazenby, Cece Bell, Sharyn McCrumb and Rod Belcher) and hadn't seen Beth since the photo shoot. I get the feeling she loves this part of her new career. And she's good at it.
