There will always be a special place in my heart for Lovey Bunny-my "first born" picture book. Saw this little sweetheart down at the beach over the weekend. So adorable!
So I taught the kids how to draw Lovey today during my school visit the other day. A few of them needed help afterwards, but this one little girl came up to the easel, grabbed the markers and did THIS!!! 5 years old!!! No help whatsoever. So adorable. Rockin’ purple shoes too!
The board book is out! This little one is oozing with cute and makes the perfect little gift for your sweetheart! Here's Lovey on display in Mendocino, California.
My first book got some love from a librarian in Michigan. It is so nice to see that kids are checking my book out. Lovey is like my "Little Engine that Could"; (albeit a bit of a sales mystery) -with two retail seasons in Target, three printings and an upcoming board book version launching later this year. But you have to celebrate all the little milestones. :)
It was another great event down in Princeton! The organizers are so wonderful and welcoming to all the authors. It is so much fun to meet everyone and talk shop in between signing books. I suppose the surprise of the day was selling out of Lovey Bunny. She is in her second year and going strong! A few people came by to tell me how much their daughters loved that book and how they met me the year before. So sweet. The Grumpy Pets also did well but for some reason, Lovey still outsold it. I even made special Grumpy bubbles for the kids!!! They threw a lovely party for all of us afterwards and we sold something like 73k in books in just 4 hours! Crazy! :)
