Holiday Book Signing at Bliss

I had a great time signing books at Bliss on the McDonough square on Saturday, December 7th.  Bliss is an adorable bakery on our local town square that has delicious cupcakes, specialty cakes to order, gelato and other tasty treats.  It was a perfect fit for my book, since they have a lot of little customers. :) There were a lot of Christmas festivities going on that day, so the shop stayed really busy.  There were  Christmas carolers singing, children visiting Santa on the square and the parade later that evening.  Here are some pictures from the event….

McDonough Public Library Author Visit & Tea Party

I was thrilled to have a great turnout at the McDonough Public Library for my author visit and tea party last night!  The kids were so much fun and asked a lot of really great questions.  I introduced myself, told them a little bit about my background and how I got into writing the book.

They wanted to know all about Tiger the cat and how he started drinking tea.  I really enjoyed all of their fun questions, it was an entertaining and inquisitive group!

The kids listened quietly while I read the story.  
Following the story, they had more fun questions to ask...
Afterwards, they shared their own stories about their special animal friends and colored pictures that I had printed from my coloring book.   Cookies and juice were served while I signed books to the children.  
Aren't they adorable?!!  I love my job!

Book Signing & Children's Tea at Booksalicious Bookstore in Bluffton, SC

My first book signing was a great success!  I was thrilled with the number of children that came to meet Tiger and grab a signed copy of the book.  We served cookies from the French Bakery, located next to the bookstore (which is fabulous, by the way) and  "tea" a.k.a apple juice for the kids.  The children were able to meet and greet Tiger (he was a trooper!) and enjoy storytime as Tedi Zaryczny, a family friend & retired librarian, read the book aloud to all the guests.  

Here are some photos from the event....


I am grateful for Tedi coming out to read Tiger's story, the children loved her animated reading of the book!  I would also like to thank Judy Hutson and Paula Baughan for being gracious hosts and requesting a signing event at their lovely bookstore.  If you are in the Bluffton area, please stop by and visit.  You can also find them online here.
