Today was Book Launch Day at Owl’s Nest Bookstore. It was very successful with lots of friends, family and others attending. Evan and I signed 25 books and talked to many happy customers. I did three book readings to different groups of children. Everyone was very impressed with Evan’s artwork. A big thanks to Michael at Owl’s Nest for hosting the event, and to Evan for taking three hours out of his day to attend. And thanks to everyone who came out to support us.
It’s been a busy week. I had a table at Symon’s Valley Ranch on Saturday, but didn’t have the best location tucked away in a corner. I managed to sell nine books. Sunday was the start of the annual book fair at the Jewish Community Centre which is being co-sponsored by Owl’s Nest Books. My book will be on sale there under the local authors category. The fair lasts for one week from 7-14 December.
It was a very exciting morning today with Gil Tucker from Global TV coming to my school to interview me and Evan. I read to the grade 1/2 class and then introduced them to Evan. Evan proceeded to talk to the students about his illustrations and they kept him busy with lots of questions. It will be aired on Global TV tonight at 6.55 PM.
So far I have sold about 100 books. Not too shabby for two weeks since publication.
