Storytime and Book Launch at Borders Books- Success!

I was worried that no one would show up for story time and my book launch for "Tickle, Tickle! Itch, Twitch!" but it all turned out great.

I had fun reading the book to the kids with my daughter's over-enthusiastic help and appreciated the friendliness of the Borders staff and customers. So for being an "unknown" like myself, I feel that selling 40+ books at a signing is awesome! (Thanks, Mom for buying 10...that really skewed the numbers) Watch a small portion of the reading here.

Then I'll read one or two other books and stay for a signing until 2pm. See a preview of the book here...
