Hey everyone! I’m taking my dandelion show on the road this Saturday, October 18th, to the Barnes & Noble in Stamford, CT. The fun starts at 11am. I’ll be reading my book, THE DANDELION’S TALE, along with my little bird and flower helpers (aka, my daughters). We’ll have giveaways and snacks for the kiddies. This B&N is part of the Stamford Mall, so the parents can shop and dine after the reading. Hope to see you there!
This past weekend I had a book signing at my local Barnes & Noble (thank you Kelly for all you do for me!). I decided to do a little something different. Come on, I’ll show you.
I pulled up to the store with my family. As always, I was thrilled to see posters about my books in the window. Talk about dreams come true. You spend so much time reading and writing and wishing, seeing your name in a book store window and on the cover of a book never grows old.
To gear up for story time, I did a little practice run. This time last year, I didn’t need glasses to read. Those days are over! Funny how the angle of the picture makes the book look HUGE.
I asked everyone who came by my table to help build a dandelion. Kids had fun sticking the dandelion’s seedpods everywhere they could. I have to admit, they did a pretty good job.
After story time, we all sat down and started drawing and coloring. I have some pretty nice artwork to share. Thank you to the kids who took the time to show us what incredible artists they are!
Thank you to the staff of Womrath’s Bookstore in Bronxville, NY for being the perfect hosts for this past weekend’s book signing. This was the big local signing that a lot of my peeps (aka friends and family) were looking forward to attending.
There was only one drawback. It was an absolutely beautiful, warm day – the first since fall began! The normally bustling town was much quieter than usual. We writers love rain! Rain drives people to bookstores.
My peeps came, bought lots o books, and made it a very special day. As the guys from Ghost Hunters say at the end of every episode, “On to the next!”
I wanted to share some pics from the event. Hope you can be in the future ones!
It’s just 7 days until my first picture book, The Dandelion’s Tale, is released. I’m kicking everything off with a story time reading in Brooklyn at Powerhouse on 8th on Sunday, March 16th at 11:30am. I haven’t been to Brooklyn in a loooong time. This is the perfect reason to make my return.
I’ll be reading the book along with my dandelions, aka my teenage daughters. The book was written for them when they were toddlers and I can’t think of a better way to do story time than with the most special girls in my life. We’re practicing every night and trying to awaken our inner actors. It’s been fun. Kind of like putting on a little play.
We’ll have crafts for the kids that attend and promise to have a lot of fun. Hope to see you all there!
