“The ramblings and grumblings of author Ad Hudler”

A very happy author

I got back this weekend from an east-coast-of-Florida book-selling swing, and I sold a ton of books and had a ton of fun.

My first event was a return visit to the book club at a community called The Club at Boynton Beach. They're a fun, spirited and smart group that asks lots of questions. Here I am with the girls who put it all together:

(Still looking for that "anti-multiple-chin" option on my camera. Must be close to the anti-red-eye setting, but I CAN'T FIND IT! Someone please advise.)

From here I drove rather quickly to Port St. Lucie, where I was the keynote speaker at the annual meeting and banquet for the Friends of the St. Lucie County Library System.

These girls had me in stitches the entire night. I laughed so hard my face hurt the next morning.

And, then, the next evening I had my first-ever event at the Vero Beach Book Center. An invite to this place is coveted by most authors, and now I see why. Take a look at some of the details:

Yes, those are REAL FLOWERS! Cynthia Grabenbauer is the hostess with the mostess. It's a great bookstore, and if you have kids you'll want to check out the adjacent-and-large children's bookstore next time you're zipping up or down I-95.

So ... as I do at all bookstore signings, I gave each bookstore employee their own complimentary pink tape measure with "Man of the House" printed on it. And, after the reading, I treated everyone to milk and brownies (made by me) from the back of my truck. Here's a picture of me and Cynthia:

Oh, by the way, the WWMMCD on my T-shirt stands for "What would my main character do?"

Ad: You cannot be serious??!! By your own admission, the Vero Beach Book Center is "coveted" by authors. You then point out the large marquee and fresh cut flowers. But you wear a t-shirt to the event?? What gives?

For your information, Scott, that is one of my BEST T-shirts!
And I was wearing my best boots.
Geez, we're not all Sara Palins, okay?
