Well, it was a quiet event, but the book signing at the Books-a-Million in Gainesville went well. My parents-in-law, Chuck and Patricia Cook, dropped by and we had a very nice get-together (which we haven't had for a while).
We also had two winners in the book raffle, Ms. Aisha Khan (a very lovely young lady) and Ms. Kathy Mellette (a middle grade teacher from Gainesville who was quite pleasant to talk to).
Next event: The Official Book Launch Event (yes, I know it's weird to have the "official" one after this past book signing)
July 2nd, 2013 at 7:00pm
Riverside Public Library in Riverside, Illinois
Also, if you happen to be going to the American Library Association conference this upcoming June 27th-July 1st at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, stop by the Peachtree Publishers' booth #2527. We'll have lots of great children's picture books, as well as early chapter and middle reader books!
