I had a wonderful book signing at the Honey Barn Quilt Shop on Saturday. The store was filled with such beautiful fabrics that it was hard to forget about all the quilts I would have liked to make out of them and concentrate on Night and Day!

Night and Day - Honey Barn

The quilt shop is in an old barn that’s been very nicely renovated right on the edge of Goldfield, a tiny town between Humboldt and Clarion, in western Iowa.  The old rafters of the barn are still visible, and the owner, Melinda Petersen, has some beautiful quilts and unique displays.

Because Jensen, the main character in Night and Day, is a quilter, the shop was a perfect place for a book signing. I read aloud several scenes from the book that are set in quilt shops, and scenes that pertain to quilting, both modern and nostalgic.

I thoroughly enjoyed chatting with and getting to know all the people who came to meet me. I sold 18 books, which I thought was very good, especially since no one knows me in the Goldfield area. The most frequent comment I heard was that after hearing one snippet or another from the book, that they had to buy a copy so they could find out what happened next! It was very exciting!

(If you would like to purchase a copy of my book, Night and Day, go to and search for Night and Day by Sherrie Hansen, or, go directly to my publisher at, or call the Blue Belle Inn at 641-713-3113 to order a signed copy.)
