Upcoming Events

Today I thought I’d just update everyone on a few events I have coming up very soon. I’m excited about both of them.

Saturday, May 5th I will be at the Barnes and Noble in Mandeville, LA at 10:00 am reading The Pea in Peanut Butter to the kids during Storytime and will also be selling and signing my book. Please drop by if you are in the area and say hi.
On Saturday May 19th, I will be selling and signing my book at the Homewood Suites by Hilton, 5860 Corporate Blvd., Baton Rouge from 1-5:00 pm. There will also be another author there who writes adult inspirational books. I hope to see some of you there!

Monday, I am hitting the pavement with another author to see if we can get some more book signings set up so I hope to make some more announcements soon.
That’s what’s up with me. I’ve been working my big rear off trying to market my book and hopefully it’s starting to pay off. This is not an easy process as many of you know. I’m really not much of a leader but a great follower so this is tough for me but I am determined to do it and make the best of it.

What about you? Does anyone have any updates they’d like to share?
Have a great spring (hopefully) week everyone and keep writing and reading! By the way, my flowers are just gorgeous right now. Why can't spring last forever?

  1. Hitting the pavement. :-) I like it. Yeah, the marketing is just *so* much fun. I just set up my very first cyber release day party and book tour. I've done a few blog stops here and there with new releases, but nothing like this. So I am pretty excited to see how it goes.

    Good luck with the book signings and booking more.

    1. Yeah, Cat, I'm doing my darnest but like you, I loathe every minute of it. I do not like trying to sell myself. Nope... not one bit.

  4. Have fun at the signings, Allyn (& Kelly)! It can be nervewrecking, I hear, but it does pay off (so I hear, too). Spring is lovely, isn't it? I wonder how your garden looks like. :)
