My book does not release until June (please come to the official release party), but since I have been doing so many school visits in San Antonio my publisher released 50 copies early there for a pre-launch signing. A test launch, you could say.
First, I was happy just because I got to wear my new flower hair accessory (for some reason, I have become enamoured with the romance of wearing flowers in my hair). But the turn-out was fantastic and I was soon more than thrilled. It was a delight to see so many kids there, many students whose schools I had visits. One even came all dressed up.
And the new book sold out!
I hope that is a good sign for the official release of the book!
