I returned home from Las Vegas last night energized after a whirlwind trip to the ALA Annual Convention to do my first book signing at the Zonderkidz booth in Exhibit Hall at the convention center.
The Zonderkidz sales team did a terrific job getting the booth ready for the signing with 216 books neatly stacked on either side of the signing table.
They also did a smash up job spreading the word. Indeed, the line to get books signed began forming early – at 9:15 – and quickly stretched around the corner like a long snake!
I signed books nonstop until I ran out at just past 10:30. I loved interacting with each and every book enthusiast who stopped by to get a signed copy. My hand was tired by the time I signed copy no. 216, but it was worth it!
Thank you, Zonderkidz for flying me out and thank you, librarians, for your enthusiastic response to GOODNIGHT, ARK!
