First Friday book signing -- one week away!

I will have a book signing and officially launch my children's picture book, "Card Auntie's Wonderful Workshop" on Friday, June 4th, 5-8 PM at Stifel and Capra (www.stifelandcapra.com) at 260 W. Broad Street in Falls Church, VA. It's at the corner of W. Broad and Little Falls Street, in the historic old white house there. My book signing is part of Stifel and Capra's First Friday festivities (held throughout Falls church); there will be snacks and lots of cool Hawaiian shirts on sale, too, in addition to all the other neat things. Y'all come!!

Remembering "Make Way for Ducklings"

I wrote a letter to the Washington Post in response to a wonderful photo that had been on the front page 4/27/10. They printed my letter on 5/1. I thought it would be fun to put it here on my blog.

Card Auntie inspires card-making!

A fellow choir member told me today that her granddaughter, Lucy, her friend, Julia, and Julia's letter brother, Adam, loved reading "Card Auntie's Wonderful Workshop". Adam loved it so much he wanted to make a card, so the kids had a card-making session! That makes me very happy indeed!

Tori's kindergarten class loves Card Auntie!

This is a message I received today from my nephew's wife, Susan. Her little girl took Card Auntie's Wonderful Workshop to school today in Massachusetts:
Tori's kindergarten teachers (and students!) loved the book! And Tori was so proud to have it read to the class telling everyone her auntie wrote and "drew" it ... They did have fun looking for the snails... We did see the snail in the clouds and were wondering if it was coincidental or not... Now we know!
It is a very sweet book! Congrats again!

Mindy Lockard and daughters review "Card Auntie"

Mindy Lockard is an etiquette consultant in Oregon. She teaches and writes about etiquette, networking and interpersonal skills. Her clients include corporations, universities (preparing college kids for the workforce), and people of all ages. I really loved Mindy's blog when I found it, and I thought she might be interested in reading my picture book. Not only did she read it; she also reviewed it with her two little girls and posted the review on her blog: http://mindylockard.com/blog/ .
I hope you will check it out, not only for the review but all the interesting and fun photos, info and crafts Mindy posts on her blog!
