If you are looking for a Virtual Signing, please visit our new site at WWW.GCREADINGVS.COM


- If you order from multiple signings at once, your books will be shipped when the last signing ends. If you want your books to ship as they are released, please order them separately and pay appropriate shipping.

- Please double check to be sure you are ordering the correct book. Once the signing has ended and an order has been placed with the bookstore, we cannot change your order.

- We cannot be expected to notice if you accidentally order twice. If you think you have ordered but aren't sure, feel free to email us and we will check for you. Refunds will NOT be issued if you notice after the refund deadline has passed.

- Books will be signed around the author's schedule, therefore, we cannot *always* ship your order the day the book releases. This is a fluid process that will vary from signing to signing.

*~Poetry To Live By~*

For the second poem I chose 'She Walks in Beauty' by Lord Byron. When I read this poem one word comes to mind,enchanting. Lord Byron describes the woman he loves in such a way that I just get chills. I'm sure there isn't a girl out there that wouldn't swoon if a guy wrote her a poem like this.

Lord Byron, or George Gordon Byron was a British poet who lived from 1788 to 1824 and during his life became well known as a romantic. He wrote several other great love poems and his name is synonymous with poetry still to this day. Each word he wrote seemed to drip with emotion...if you ask me, men today should take a hint from Lord Byron!

She Walks in Beauty

She walks in beauty, like the night
of cloudless climes and starry skies;
And all that's best of dark and bright
meet in her aspect and her eyes:
Thus mellowed to that tender light
which heaven to gaudy day denies.
One shade the more, one ray the less,
had half impaired the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress,
or softly lightens o'er her face;
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
how pure, how dear their dwelling-place.

And on that cheek, and o'er that brow,
so soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
but tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
a heart whose love is innocent!

-Lord Byron
