“HOUSE” Opening Strong!

Monday November 5, 2012

So far, the response to my new book, If I Built a House has been amazing. At the launch, (held on October 27th at The Owl & Turtle Bookshop in Camden, Maine) I had one young friend come up to the table, and even though he was only six years old, he read the whole book, cover to cover. It was great to hear the story in his voice, but even better was his reaction as he turned each page and discovered a “new” room. He kept saying, “Oh, come on! Are you kidding me? A Racetrack Room?!” or “A Fish Tank Room?!” It was really fun watching him walk his way through Jack’s dream house. And this last Saturday (November 3rd) I was at The Briar Patch Bookshop in Bangor, Maine for my second signing where I met 125 people and read them a few of my books, including HOUSE. It was another enthusiastic crowd. Even the mayor brought his daughters to meet me!

I’ll be holding several more book signings throughout the state of Maine from now until Christmas. I’ll post my full schedule in the next post. In the meantime, if you’ve read If I Built a House and would like to add a review on Amazon, I would really appreciate it. I’d love to hear what you have to say.
