A First

This past Saturday was my very first book signing for my new book, The Declaration of Independence from A to Z, at the very quaint Blue Chair Children’s Books in Glendora, California.

This was the perfect place for a first signing: family owned business, very friendly owners, cheerful store, wonderful atmosphere. I couldn’t have been more pleased.

Family, friends, and strangers who became friends, came in, bought books, and had me sign their copies.  And the pictures! I think I had my picture taken more times in those two hours than in my entire lifetime (well, maybe not, but it was a lot!). But I had a great time.

Me with Shaelyn of Blue Chair, and my friend (and sometimes co-author) Gaby.

Special thanks goes to my hostess, Shaelyn, who was very accommodating, asking me constantly if there was anything I needed. I felt so welcomed.

If you are ever in old town Glendora in Southern California, make sure you stop and visit this cute store. There are books, educational toys, and knick knacks to buy, couches and chairs to sit on, and even a climbing wall to scramble up (for the kids…sorry adults). My daughters and their friends and cousins loved the place. We plan to go back again.

This first signing will definitely go down as one of the most memorable moments of my life. I had an absolutely fantastic time.

And if you missed this one, come see me at the Barnes and Noble in Orange this Saturday, February 27th, 2010, from 2pm to 4pm. The store is located at 791 South Main Street in Orange, California. Hope to see you there!
