The pleasures of a signing

  • Hi everyone,

    Yesterday at my Barnes & Noble signing:

    My thanks to Kathy McQueen for introducing me to her grandson. It was a highlight of the event.

    Writers Hall of Fame was having a Book Fair at the store, meaning that a percent of all purchases accompanied with a free coupon went to the organization for future writing scholarships to budding young writers.

    To do my part I signed copies of the three recent titles: 7 KEYS TO RESEARCH FOR WRITING SUCCESS, A PLACE TO START A FAMILY, and CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS.

    As always, my thanks to Renee Hunt, Jim Troye, and everyone at Barnes & Noble for making my stay so enjoyable.

  • You’re invited

    Hi everyone,

    Tomorrow evening I’ll give a program at The Library Center in Springfield, 4653 S. Campbell Ave., 417-882-0714. Here are the particulars as they appear in the program.

    Crawly School for Bugs… An Evening with David Harrison
    Tuesday, April 10, 7 p.m. for all ages in the auditorium. Children’s award-winning author and poet David Harrison, of Springfield, introduces three of his latest books including a unique school where insects go to learn their trades. Enjoy readings, a discussion about writing for children and a Q&A — useful for anyone interested in children’s literature and how it’s created. Children are welcome; David will ask for volunteers to help read some poems. Stay for drawings for four free autographed books.

    The other two books I’ll discuss are A PLACE TO START A FAMILY and 7 KEYS TO RESEARCH FOR WRITING SUCCESS.
    Thanks to Barnes & Noble for providing several of my titles, including the three new ones, for sale in the lobby.

    Another chance to win a signed book

    Hi everyone,

    My thanks today to Darlene Beck-Jacobson for featuring my new book with Mary Jo Fresch, 7 KEYS TO RESEARCH FOR SUCCESSFUL WRITING, on her blog at https://darlenebeckjacobson.wordpress.com
    There's also a free book involved so check it out if you're interested.

    Darlene, many thanks!

    Tomorrow at Barnes & Noble

    Hi everyone,

    Tomorrow (Saturday the 27th) at 1:00 I’ll sign A PLACE TO START A FAMILY at Barnes & Noble in Springfield. I hope some of you who live in the area can stop by to say hello.

    Yesterday I confirmed March 10 for a signing at Sun Dog Books in Seaside, Florida. I’m looking at other dates including stores in Destin, Panama City, and Kansas City. Gotta push dem books!

    So far no one has left a comment on Amazon.com to get their name in the drawing for a free copy of A PLACE TO START A FAMILY. Someone I don’t know left a lovely review but so far that’s it. You have until February 16 to meet the deadline. So far it looks like I’ll get to save the copy I’ve been planning to give away.

    Scholastic has posted about 7 KEYS TO RESEARCH FOR SUCCESSFUL WRITING. Here’s the link if you’re interested or know someone who might be. http://edublog.scholastic.com/post/7-keys-research-writing-success-conversation-mary-jo-fresch-and-david-l-harrison
