Writing quote

Sure, it's simple writing for kids...Just as simple as raising them.

Attendees congregating around the
Goosebottom Books booth
Busy, busy morning. We had a lot of traffic by our booth, got to meet many wonderful librarians and educators. Anne and I handed out numerous postcards and introduced  the Goosebottom books and the upcoming Dastardly Dames series which got much attention. Needless to say, we were exhausted by the end of the day! But all in all, Id' say it was a very productive morning. The afternoon slowed down a bit, but I did get to have a book signed by Jeff Kinney, Diary of a Wimpy Kids author, and listened to a panel discussion with Rick Riordan, his illustrator, producer of the Percy Jackson audiobooks, and the actor who voiced Percy Jackson in the audiobooks.
