Give -Away Winner and a Book Signing in Less Than Two Minutes

Happy Wednesday!

The winner of the Trinket Swag Pack and book is:

Holly Anna

I'll be emailing you for your address, or you can email me at storyqueen at gmail dot com and we can work out the details.

So, this is what a booksigning looks like, in two minutes or less: 

Yes, those are my daughters dancing.  (Not the littlest one.  She is a student of mine.)

It was a lovely night--completely ran out of books, which is both good and bad.  A book event is kind of like a Punnett Square--four possible outcomes.  

No people/
No books
People attend/
No books
No people/
Books arrive
People attend/ Books arrive
As you can see, only one outcome is  favorable in terms of a book launch.  I was lucky.  Lots of people AND books.  Whew.  

I've got another event this weekend.  I'll be at the Orange County Kid's Book Festival.  I'll be on a panel called, "On the Tween End of Teen" at 9:45 at the Teen and Young  Adult Stage, and then on the Storyteller's Stage (sponsored by PBS) at 12:00ish.  I'll be signing at the Mysterious Galaxy Booth in between the two.  I cannot tell you what a thrill it is to say that I am on a stage sponsored by PBS.  I grew up with Sesame Street and the Electric Company, and my kids grew up with Arthur, Wishbone, and Reading Rainbow.  Such a huge contribution to the literacy of young children!!

So, if you are planning on going to the OC Kid's Book Festival, come by and see me.  I'll have bookmarks!

I've more to tell you, but it will have to wait.  I'm hungry and I've not had dinner and IT'S 9:37!!

A big thanks to everyone who came out for the Trinket launch.  Almost 300 Oreos were consumed, in case you were wondering.  (272 in actual fact.)

You were quite lucky to have lots of people and lots of books (although it sounds as if they could have ordered more!). What a cool book launch event. You deserved it. And oh, how I wish I'd been there.

Your daughters and your student are fine dancers. (So why do they keep their hands at their sides in Irish step dancing? I've always wondered.)
