Signing Weekend

Hey everyone! Here’s some pics from the past few days! On Sunday I attended Meet The Faces Behind The Books author event at the Englewood Library with 60 other Colorado authors! Super-Amazing-Librarian Deb Parker and her fabulous band of book-loving librarians were absolutely wonderful and brilliant and lovely!

It’s so amazing to be able to spend the afternoon with other book-lovers surrounded by smiling faces, yummy food, and books, books, books! And since it’s National Library Week, go out and celebrate your local library and the librarians that champion authors, readers, literacy, and books!¬†After the event, me and my family spent the rest of the day driving around Denver. We ended the day at Casa Bonita where we watched the cliff divers and played enough ski ball to win a few erasers…you know how those things are. 400 tickets for a small plastic car. Anyway, on the drive home we listened to the audio book of Everything On A Waffle by one of my favorite authors, Polly Horvath. It was a brilliant day!

Then yesterday I went down to beautiful, warm Boulder. Fellow Egmont author, Alexandra Diaz and I spent the evening at The Boulder Bookstore, which is one of the most amazing bookstores I’ve ever been to! They were so amazing and kind and accommodating, and couldn’t have been more wonderful to work with. I will definitely be going back when my next book comes out! A huge thanks to everyone at the Boulder Bookstore: Mandy King and the wonderful Amanda who introduced and helped Alexandra and I! Also thanks to Thom from The Laughing Goat Cafe (awesome iced mocha’s by the way, and to-die for chocolate pie) who was kind enough to announce the signing to all the patrons at the Monday night Poetry Reading.

Anyway, here are some pictures of everything!

Here is a picture of the amazing set-up they set-up for us!

All in all it was a wonderful two days! What could be better than spending time with librarians, independent booksellers, authors, books, friends, and family!
