First Book Reading Recap

Sunday, February 19th was my first book signing/reading.  Over 20 people came to get their book signed, buy a book, hear me read, eat cookies, etc.  It was a success!  Thank you, Laurel and Hannah at the Laughing Loon for putting this together for me!

Illustrator, Kevin Blackstone was there as well, showing off his original drawings for the book.  I remember when I first saw them on his kitchen writing table.  I was blown away!

My friend Rachel took some pictures during the event.  Here are a few for your viewing pleasure.

Kevin shows off a book while I sign the next one.

Owner, Laurel Rooks, holds her last copy for the day.

I read with expression!

It was a wonderful event.  Reading my work to others has been one of my favorite things to do since I was a youngster.  I feel like my dream is becoming a reality.  I can't wait to do it again!

On a snow note, we got a heavy 5 inches since I posted last.  Woo hoo!  The snow is great!  And, yup, it's still fluttering down...
