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...
