Book Expo America at Javits Center in NY

I got to enjoy¬†an afternoon at Book Expo America on Wed. May 25th, and signed copies of “A Sweater For Duncan” along with Author Margaret Malone. The line of people waiting for signed books was amazing! ūüôā Thank you to all those who waited in long lines to get their signed copy of Duncan and say “Hi” to Margie and me!


Since Publisher Raven Tree Press experienced roof damage during storms several weeks ago that damaged their BEA display booth and inventory, they were not able to exhibit this year.¬† The wonderful people at BEA arranged things so that several of RTP authors and illustrators could still attend BEA and sign books in the Author’s Autographing area.¬† It was a great experience!¬† Thank you to BEA and RTP for making all of this happen!¬† I look forward to next year’s show when my new book, “The Rain Forest Party” will be released.



Thank you Jeanne Cimorelli for taking all the great photos for us!! ūüėČ
