This morning I read my book, Wink! The Ninja Who Wanted To Be Noticed, at the West Hartford Public Library. I'd say it was a pretty good turnout filled with friends and Magoo's classmates, present and past. (And a handful of people I didn't know.)
There was definitely two layers to the presentation. One for the kids. One for the adults. I could always tell when I was speaking to the adults for too long. :)
As soon as that was over, I went next door to Barnes and Noble where they had a nice table set up for me.
This little boy (below) was so cute. He came up all by himself and asked me to sign his book. I wanted to eat him up!
The bookstore ordered forty books and they sold thirty-seven. Woo-hoo! It was so much fun to get to talk to people I hadn't seen in awhile. And I truly appreciate everyone who came out and bought a book or just showed some support.
Unfortunately, Magoo and his dad could not make it. Magoo didn't keep his breakfast down this morning, so nooooo library. But all of his friends sent him warm wishes for feeling better soon.
It was such a great time, and now that my ego is properly inflated, I can scrub off my extra make-up, comb out my hair, and hunker down with my guys.
Thanks again to Wink buyers near and far. And special thanks to Sara and Pam for taking photos.
