Branford School Visit

Yesterday I had the chance to visit Branford High School in north Florida(And Middle School). What an awesome place to visit! The students were courteous, talented, and ready to listen and learn. The media specialist, Karen, was so passionate about the kids, and is an example of what type of person we want in our schools. The event started with a large assembly, where we got to speak with 600 kids on a variety of topics. I spoke on publishing and stressed how they can get their work published now. Following the assembly, I went to the classroom of Mr. Wingate, who is a supreme example of an awesome teacher. In the smaller setting I had the privilege of speaking to his english students on writing, editing, and publishing. They were attentive, curious, and had excellent questions.

Following the class visit we participated in a book signing in the media center. The kids were great, and came up to me to share their (incredible) artwork, talk about their writing, and other literary interests. There were so many memorable kids I couldn't possibly name them all, but there are a few that I wanted to call attention to. Rachel, thank you for sharing your favorite books. Ashley, thanks for taking so many great pictures of all of us. Bryce, keep writing. I enjoyed reading the sample you brought. Haley, Keep up the awesome artwork. Austin, rock the 'stach! And to the un-named kids that had me wear a lama hat and join them in a selfie, I want a copy.

Thanks Branford for the great experience!

New Smyrna Beach Book Festival this weekend!

I am excited to participate in the New Smyrna Beach Book Festival this weekend. Along with 50 author authors and speakers, I will be there to socialize, sign books, and speak. This is a big event, so I am highly looking forward to it. It will also be my second event with print books and book signing. If you would like a print copy of Elseerian (With illustration) feel free to stop by and grab one. On another note, I have officially passed the 50,000 books sold mark! Who knew my series would come so far, so fast. Certainly not me! Thank you to all my readers for your support!

My First Book Signing, with Isaac Marion (Author of Warm Bodies)

So I am just 11 days from my first book signing on August 3rd. I am finishing placing the orders for the books that will be available for purchase that day. I must admit that I am excited to participate in such a large event. As I have mentioned before, it will be located in Orlando at the Indie Bookfest 2013, I will be sharing the spotlight with over 30 other authors. Of special note is Isaac Marion, who accepted the invitation and will also be present. As the author of the best-selling book, Warm Bodies, he will be an excellent addition to the party. If there are any of my fans who would like to get their book signed, or purchase a book in person, I hope you will consider stopping by. I hope to see you there!
