So, as promised, I wanted to relate a bit about the past weekend. This is me at Barnes and Noble (I am holding my puppet, Baby Dragon, in my hand, trying to talk him out of another tantrum.......he's rather spirited!) There was a lovely crowd for the bookfair which benefitted Casita school in Vista.
The next day, I drove up tp Costa Mesa to appear at the Orange County Children's Book Fair. I was at the JacketFlap.com booth with several other cool authors. Lots of kids came by to look at books and meet authors. It was great to see so many kids excited about BOOKS! I had some amaziing discussions with kids about their favorite books...........it was ultra-cool when one of them would recognize my book as something they had read before or checked out at the library.
I got to sit next the author of The Recess Queen, Alexis O'Neill. Recess Queen and Story Queen! We were the "Royal" end of the booth. (We restrained ourselves from making everyone bow down to us.......barely.)
Celeb sighting....I saw the back of Jamie Lee Curtis' head. Yep. Almost took a picture with my camera phone, but that's kind of stalkerish...besides, it was just the back of her head.....lots of backs of heads look like hers.
