This past Friday night, June 27th, I signed copies of The DragonFly Keeper at Hudson's quaint and wonderful little bookshop, The Learned Owl. Mary and Adam even made us lemonade. As you can see above, I met many interesting people (and even had to avoid the paparazzi). OK, the paparazzi was really my good friend Kate Reynolds.

On June 18th, my friend Charlotte Brafford invited me to speak at the Geneva chapter of the American Business Women's Association. What a great reception I had! All of these women were eager to hear my story and share the book with family and friends. Thank you for your support ladies!

O.K, so the author of The Spiderwick Chronicles actually responded to me with a handwritten note of thanks and encouragement! I sent off a book as a gift back in March, not really expecting anything. She seems like a really hilarious and refreshing person, and I hope she does actually read my book and love it. Then, in my craziest imaginings, she will introduce me to an agent who will get me an awesome 6-figure international deal. Hey, someone's dreams have to come true.

On June 3rd, I was welcomed by Conneaut's stock club at the Conneaut Library. Look at all my new readers! And good luck Stella on the baby due this week. (Can you even tell who is pregnant? She looks that good).
Yesterday, June 7th I ventured back to CrockerPark in Westlake to do a signing at the Borders there. It was a great success. Thanks Mark and Milo.
Well, I'm working on closing in on 1,000 books everyone! I'll let you know when I hit the mark. My next signing will be June 27th from 7-8 at The Learned Owl in Hudson. I'll see you there!
