Book signing today

Hi everyone,

I’ll be signing AND THE BULLFROGS SING today at Barnes & Noble from 11:00 – 1:00. Come by if you’re out and about.

I’ll also be signing all the copies that were pre-ordered and pre-paid by parents at David Harrison Elementary and McBride Elementary. They can pick up their copies today and any that remain at the store will be delivered to the schools on Monday.

Have a good weekend. I hope you don’t get stormed on where you live.

Good day for signing

Hi everyone,

The signing went well yesterday at Sundog Books in Seaside. They sold out of A PLACE TO START A FAMILY and NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T and had only four copies left of CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS.

One highlight of the signing was meeting Pat Nesbitt from Bowling Green, Kentucky, who enjoys my blog and was kind enough to buy several books for family and friends. I also met two couples from Springfield so we enjoyed our visit.

My thanks to the folks at Sundog Books for hosting me. That is one busy store!

Book signing day

Hi everyone,

I’ll be signing books today starting at 10:00 at Sundog Books in Seaside, Florida. It’s a lovely book store and I always enjoy going there to sign.

I’ll sit outside on the porch and visit with people as the go in and out the door. Saturday is Farmers Market Day on the green across the drive from the store. The temperature should be headed toward 70 so I expect a lot of people will be out.

I’ll be signing copies of NOW YOU SEE THEM, NOW YOU DON’T, A PLACE TO START A FAMILY, and CRAWLY SCHOOL FOR BUGS. It should be a nice day.

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.

  • What a difference a day makes

    David giving brief remarks

    Hi everyone,

    Yesterday afternoon I spent a wonderful hour visiting with Mrs. Hill’s communication arts class at my alma mater, Jarrett Middle School, in Springfield, Missouri. What fun to return after so many years to meet some students and answer questions. I had the honor of being interviewed by the class. The kids will now write articles about the experience and a winner will be chosen to be published in the school paper. You can imagine how flattered I felt to be selected as an alum to write about. Thanks to all!

    I’m happy to report that the missing muse showed up yesterday and that first elusive poem fairly jumped onto the page early on. I tweaked it later (after coming home) and am pleased with it. Now I’m set to get this book going.

    Busy day today. At 10:00 I’ll do a story hour and sign books as part of a fund raiser for Springfield’s Civic Symphony. This will be another nostalgic event for me. Back in the day I played principal trombone in the Symphony and have a picture on my wall of the orchestra in 1957. I sure had more hair then!

    After that I’ll attend the Springfield’s Writers’ Guild to share lunch while listening to Kim Piddington talk about agents. When she’s done, it will be my turn at 1:00 to speak. My title is, “In It for the Long Haul, from Then to Now, a Writer’s Fifty-Five Year Journey.” http://springfieldwritersguild.org

    So yesterday and today will make a nice closing to the week, and I even got a poem out of it.

    David
