Party Friday!!!

Hey all, HAPPY FRIDAY!!!

With a successful end to the blog and book tours, I thought I’d use this post to celebrate a few things AND give you deets on my epic end-of-the-tour giveaway going on this weekend.

Let’s start with the fun signing from last night. Barnes and Noble did an epic Teacher Appreciation night. I got to give a little talk, along with two amazing authors – Anne Bromley, author of an amazing picture book THE LUNCH THEIF, and Dawn Knobbe, author of a YA adventure book, RUNAWAY STORM. I met other teachers, a publicist, a few parents and some store execs. It was a fab night. But don’t take my word for it…I have pics

Two areas were set up in the store – one where the other authors and I talked, gave workshops, etc, and one for signing books. And YES, I kept the very cool signage! (yep, I am a geek)

First, I talked with the crowd:

Then, I made friends:

And finally, I signed a few books!

 AN EPIC night all the way around. I stocked signed a few copies for the store, so if you live near Oceanside, CA and want to QUICKLY get a copy of the book (it is still a 4-week turn with Amazon), stop by the Barnes and Noble and check it out in the parenting book section!

Next up, the blog tour. There are still a few chances to win a signed copy of EMOTIONAL INTENSITY IN GIFTED STUDENTS in a few remaining contests:

Needs more reasons to enter the contests or leave comments during the tour…

I am truly humbled.

Thanks again for making this an unforgettable couple of weeks. Next up…several speaking engagements and I really MUST finish a very important project over the next few weeks. Wish me luck!

  1. Congratulations on the book! Oh, to win a copy–I need it NOW, not 4 weeks from now when Amazon gets around to shipping–or 6 months from now, when the library finally adds it!

  2. I can’t wait to read this book. I raised two gifted girls to adulthood and I sure could have used this book when they were growing up. Even though my kids are grown now I still want to read this book. I’m hoping I need it for the future “gifted” grandkids.

  3. All the best to you and continued success on your book! I’m so happy that I got my copy from Prufrock Press today! My weekend is set. 🙂 It would be awesome to win all gift pack so I can share it with my parents group and son’s teachers!
