Ah, yes, I went to my first REAL book signing at the Olive Warner Library in Hooker, Oklahoma. The librarians were very, very sweet and made our time well worth it. My blue shoulder dragon, Bruki, helped me sell books. There was a steady flow of interested book lovers for the entire time, and it was a very laid back, cozy atmosphere. They invited me to come back in December for another book signing, and I absolutely intend on going, if the weather holds out.
Unfortunately, like the idiot that I tend to be, I forgot to have someone take pictures until the very end, when we were all packing up. So I only have two good pictures to share with you. I will remember to take more next time!
I keep getting in trouble with my "promotion officer" (play of words on propation officer...) for not having quotes and pictures that people can pin to pintrest (yes, the pin-addicts need more stuff to feed their addictive habit...). So, I have been randomly been working on pin-able stuff for my book. In case you did not get the hint: PIN THIS STUFF ON PINTREST IF YOU ARE ABLE. *wink, wink*
These are old pictures taken of my first book singing in April. I forgot to post them... oh well, better late than never, huh?
Here are 10 reviews of my book (first in a series) Tales of the Wovlen: The Dragons Son.
Please, read them and take the time to share them with your friends! It would mean a lot to these reviewers and to this author. *smile, wink*

After the brutal massacre in his village, a broken, grieving boy chooses to live with a golden dragon in the wild rather than go to the mountains to be with his own people. If only he had known then what that simple choice meant…
Thirteen years later, Keegan, no longer a boy, learns that his younger sister survived the massacre and so sets off to be reunited with her. When Keegan accidentally interrupts a plot against a princess, what should have been a fairly simple trip turns into a complicated struggle for survival. A mysterious elder appears, full of wit and riddle. Mythical monsters shed their fictional skin and hungrily pursue Keegan and his dragon. Haunting nightmares begin to tear at his mind. As he continues on his quest to be reunited with his sister, Keegan is only just beginning to understand what it means to be The Dragons Son.

So far, the "editor" ("angel" is more accurate, I think: The Helpy Helper - Affordable and Friendly VA services) has been making GREAT progress on the novel. We have revamped some face things on it, like the title, and "the angel" made a fantastic book cover (and I mean FANTASTIC). Now we are just working on getting the last few details done, which includes me writing a snappy synopsis (*screams & runs away*). Other than that, we are almost done! Talk about me being Super Excited!
