Bedford Fall Foliage Festival

Body: 

Well, we weathered a hurricane under a teeny tarp at the Bedford Fall Foliage Festival October 3 and 4. Thank goodness for kinder, gentler weather October 10 and 11. I was absolutely astounded to win the Most Unique Product award out of over 300 beautifully crafted, original artwork vendors!

Bedford Fall Foliage Festival

Body: 

What better way to huddle against the hammering hurricane this weekend than with your reindeer friends at the Bedford Fall Foliage Festival? We will be there signing books this weekend 10/3 and 10/4 from 9 to 5. But if your home is your hurricane haven this weekend, the reindeer completely understand. They'll greet you just as warmly at the event's second weekend on 10/10 - 10/11 from 9 to 5. =D

Bedford, PA

When: 

10/3, 10/4, 10/10, 10/11

Averaging 1 Every 10 Minutes!

Body: 

I am so grateful for all of the reindeer love I've been experiencing. In both Arbutus, MD and Occoquan, VA, we averaged selling a book every 10 minutes! So amazing. People really love that Santa's reindeer are getting in on the gift giving action PLUS they get to find out which reindeer delivered their special gift each year. I keep being told that I should go on Shark Tank. Hmmm....

Where: 

MD and VA

Book Signing Shows

PA Arts & Crafts Labor Day Festival

Body: 

All packed up to go to Greensburg, PA outside of Pittsburgh. At the Westmoreland Fairgrounds, they have a huge craft festival that's touted as "One of the top 20 craft shows in America" and "Highest rated craft show in PA." Wonderful things await! It is from 9/4 - 7. I'll be signing all my books at an outdoor booth. Would love to see you!

Shippensburg Book Signing

Body: 

Hi Fans -

I will be signing books at the popular Shippensburg Corn Festival on Saturday, August 29, 2015. http://shippensburgcornfestival.net/

You'll not only be able to pick up your award winning reindeer gift set, but I'll also have some advance copies of my newest book, Birthday Party SBD, available for you. Birthday Party SBD doesn't officially become available for purchase until January 2016, so this is a rare opportunity. Plus you can get it personalized!

At the Presque Isle festival, teens of all ages were snapping up the hilarious comic book, not seeming to mind that they were simultaneously learning 75 new vocab words.

Hope to see your smiling faces there :)

My Next Book

Body: 

Hi Everyone -

I just received some advance copies of my next book, Birthday Party SBD. SBD stands for Silent But Deadly and, yes, it's about the hilarious fallout that results when someone commits this social gaff at a birthday party. But who is the culprit?

I wrote this book to make learning fun. It packs in 75 vital vocabulary words for grades 4 - 8 and is in a comic book format so kids can tell what words mean by using context clues. I've read that seeing a word with a picture is supposed to help kids retain vocabulary meaning by 72%.

This book is only $5. If you'd like to check out one of my limited advance copies, please use the Contact Me tab.

Thanks and hope you're having a terrific summer :)

You can be in my next book!

Body: 

So far the sneak peek of my next book has been called everything from:
"Birthday Party SBD is an engaging and creative story! The comic book pictures bring the story to life! I love it!! It is often a struggle to get my son to sit down and read a book, but when it is in a comic book format he jumps right in. It was great to hear him laughing as he read through this story. He loved it after reading the first few sentences." by a School Administrator.
to
"Brash vulgarity I wouldn't dare show a child." by a fellow author.
Very interesting!
What's all the fuss about? If you would like a sneak peek and the chance to have your endorsement and name in the printed book, please private message me. If you request the peek, you must provide your feedback in exchange.
