Greetings from the road!Posted: September 19, 2012
Hello darlings! I’m on tour. Please do check the “Appearances” tab, above, to see where I’m going to pop up next! (hint: Chicagoland!)
I hit the ground running yesterday, starting with two school talks. To my new friends at Haverford High School and Radnor Middle School, thank you so much for having me. You were wonderful listeners, and asked good questions. And I do believe I glimpsed some future writers out there in the audience. It takes one to know one; I recognized that look. I look forward to reading your books someday.
Then last night I did an appearance at Children’s Book World in Haverford, PA, the store where I used to work. In fact, I was working there when I first began writing Seraphina. I formed a small writing group with some friends, and the first chapters of the first draft were written for that group.
It was so nice to be able to start the tour among dear old friends. The wonderful ladies at CBW know how to throw a good party, so while it stormed outside (did it ever!) we ate cake and gathered around for a question-and-answer session and book signing. A million thanks again to Hannah, Heather, Sara, Ann, and all the gang there!
That was a single-day stop. I’m in the Chicago area for the next three days before moving on to Seattle.
