We began the day in Knoxville, TN, at the Cedar Springs Christian Store. As you can see in the photo, they put us up on a stage and treated us like important knights. I suppose when you carry swords around, people often act nicely.
Some wonderful fans came by, and we were able to introduce a number of customers to our books. We had a great time!
From there we traveled to Asheville, NC, to a Barnes & Noble store. A wonderful lady named Kathryn came along who happened to be a stage combat instructor. She began an impromptu lesson on swordplay out in front of the store. It drew quite a crowd. You can see in the photo Sir Wayne Thomas Batson doing battle with said lady.
Needless to say, we had a blast! Now we might do sword battles at every store!
