More Goldberg... Yes, More!
I have to tell you that Lee was wonderful, however at this signing Lee's daughter Maddy attended and discussed her two first books. Yes, two books to Lee's one. In the process, she stole the show.
How can you beat a line like this...
Maddy: "Hey dad, what are you working on?
Lee: "I'm finishing the next chapter"
Maddy: " What's taking you so long? I'm working on the next book!"
Each of Maddy's books contained a bar code, proper first line for identifying first edition, a color photo and bio of the author and original art cover. Lee had to admit that POD publishing (via Kinko's) is a viable publishing mode, at least for Maddy!
So it is easy to see that the Goldberg household is hard at work conquering the book empire. To make a long story short, Maddy sold out of all her first edition books, of which she happily signed them, and yes, she asked each patron, 'how can I personalize this for you'.
