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…

As a THANK YOU to all of you that have made this launch so darn amazing, I am giving away an EMOTIONAL INTENSITY SWAG PACK of bookmarks, sticky notes, note pads, magazines, and one last SIGNED COPY of EMOTIONAL INTENSITY.

Check out these bloggers that have posted their reviews of EMOTIONAL INTENSITY. I have to say, I did not get to see these until this morning, and reading them has left me…well…


I am truly humbled.

Here are today’s reviewers. Be sure to leave comments on their blogs as well – I will include them in the giveaway.

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!

Have a great weekend and thanks for all the support during the tour.

  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!
