Believe it or not I do other things besides write books. I am graduating Wilmington University in two weeks with my Masters in Elementary Education. This is a very exciting time for me. Now all I need to do is find a job. That should be fun
I am still currently trying to set up some readings and signings around the area. There is currently a deal being worked out with a major bookstore chain.
Any new news will be posted as it happens.

Tonight will be my first public appearance as a children's author. I will be at the Elsinboro School tonight from 6-8. The principal will be reading my book to students and I will then talk to the students and sign books for them. I am very excited for this opportunity. I would like to thank the Elsinboro School Association for giving me this opportunity tonight.

Finally, the day has come. Right now the book is on sale at three locations with limited quantities. You can find it at both Ski Bum locations and also at Rainbow Music and Books on Main Street in Newark, DE by the University of Delaware. I have just made a new section on the blog letting you know all of the locations that the book will be sold. Hopefully there will be some signings and meet and greets soon. I will keep you posted and thank you for your support

I was browsing the Internet tonight and found out some really interesting things. April 4th, I will be apart of Book Talk with J and J. This is a blog where I was interviewed by the bloggers. It has just some random questions and interesting facts about the writing process and ways I came up with JC and Mr.T. You can check it out at http://booksbypickles.blogspot.com/.

I just received the proof for JC and Mr. T. It looks amazing. I am very excited. Tomorrow night I will be speaking for Dr. Roane's elementary literature class. When I visit her class, she usually schedules me to come in when her other students have their children's book project is due. I am super excited to see what the other students have come up with. Hopefully I can find some new prospects for 5ivestar publications. Check out the new authors that we just picked up. There are some really good reads coming soon to you from 5ivestar.
