Last Saturday, I drove down to Kingston, NY for an author event at Barnes & Noble. It was my FIRST bookstore signing, and I had a blast!
Thanks to Amie Borst and co-author Bethanie Borst (who penned the Scarily Ever Laughter series, Cinderskella, Litke Dead Riding Hood, and upcoming Snow Fright), myself and MG contemporary author Andrea Pyros got to host a successful event!
Lots of people showed up, kids and grown ups alike. It ended up being standing room only!
I did my FIRST READING EVER and it went really well. (Boy, was I nervous!)
It was a total blast answering the kids’ questions and seeing how excited they were about reading.
Here’s our table, pre-swag:
The authors! (Left to right) Me, Amie Borst, Bethanie Borst, and Andrea Pyros: PS: I feel like a giant, lol! ;p
Holding our books:
I got signed copies too!
Lots of organizations helped spread the word for the signing too, from WAMC (a local radio station), to Woodstock Radio, to AMC (where I used to work & still have privileges at), and to local papers from Poughkeepsie. Thank you!
My next signing will be Saturday, September 19 at Colonie Center Barnes & Noble for a local author event. There probably won’t be time for a reading, but it would be great to chat with you if you’re near by! 😉
Here’s a couple extra photos…
