Card Auntie's on the shelf at Hooray for Books!

What a fantastic feeling to see my little book on the shelf at a children's bookstore! The store is Hooray for Books, 1555 King Street, Alexandria, Virginia. It's a short walk east of the King Street Metro stop.

Book promotion, continued

My friend and fellow Mirror Publishing author, Sherry Farmer, gives out a bookmark at her book signings. I like that idea. I'm working on a bookmark design with a little snail that kids (big or little) can color.
As I was doing my usual web-surfing to learn about book promotion ideas, I saw that "Card Auntie" is up for sale at Books-A-Million's online site. That was neat; I didn't expect that. Hope someone will post a review there!

Wonderful world of book promotion!

I'm having fun researching various aspects of book promotion, googling book festivals, card making clubs, stamping clubs, and sites that do book reviews. The Midwest Book Review replied to my email and told me how to submit my book. I very much hope they will review it!
I traded books with another Mirror Publishing author; we both have the same first name and nickname (Sharon/Sherry). I'd like to trade with other Mirror authors because it's a good way to learn more about illustration, as well as a good way to get each other's books known to more people!
