Cherry Hills Village Elmentary School Book Fair, Blogs, News, and Appearances

Hi all!

I have a lot to report in this post! Last week, I signed books at the Cherry Hills Village Elementary School book fair. I sold 110 books in four hours! Here's a picture from the event:

Also, I’ve been featured on a few blogs. Here’s an interview I did with Shelli Cornelison at her blog Shelli’s Soliloquy and Tara Michener at her blog Whoaminotwhatiam. I was also featured on Feed Your Good Dog. Thanks to Shelli, Tara, and FYGD for the support!

I was also featured in a brief news story by 9News. You can view it here. I was interviewed yesterday by Fox31 here in Colorado for their Martino Show and I will be interviewed live on Fox31's Everyday Show at 4:00 mountain time on December 17th.

On November 24th, I will be on Cyrus Webb’s Conversations LIVE! Radio at 8:00 eastern time. You can listen to it live here.
