Book Signing in New Paltz
Ana’s been listening to me fret about no one showing up to my upcoming book signing (which is tomorrow at Inquiring Minds in New Paltz from 4 – 5 pm) so much that she finally said, “just post it on the blog, mom!”
So, we interrupt your regularly scheduled Ana health/mom angst updates for this announcement! But first, we interrupt this announcement so I can let you all know that Ana’s doing great. She went to school on Thursday and Friday and made it through both days without any issues at all. It’s like surgery never happened except she’s still covered with bruises from the various IVs and of course the incision…She has a follow-up appointment with Dr. Middlesworth (the surgeon) on September 19th, which she’s very annoyed about because that’s the day The Maze Runner opens in theaters. We may take her to see it at the IMAX theater in the palisades mall on the way home.
Anyway, sorry to interrupt the interruption…
Local folks, please come to my first ever book reading/signing!
I will be at Inquiring Minds book store in New Paltz tomorrow to from 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. to read a few passages from my book, DOORWAYS TO ARKOMO, and sign your copy (if you have one). I’ll also have some extra copies on hand if you want to purchase one (makes a great gift!)
DOORWAYS TO ARKOMO is a fantasy novel I wrote for kids ages 9 – 12 (or so). It features a child from a world called Arkomo (an imaginary world that Ana invented when she was 9) who opens up a doorway into a children’s hospital and meets Grace, an 11-year-old girl battling a rare form of liver cancer. The two girls become friends and go on an amazing adventure.
What can I say? We write what we know.
If you’re in the area tomorrow at 4:00, then please stop by! Writing this blog is a big reason I decided to take the plunge and write the book. It gave me confidence in my writing because I got so much positive feedback on my posts. It also made me realize how writing has been a huge part of my own personal healing process. I truly believe this blog and your comments here have helped keep me strong for Ana throughout this long, long, long journey. So…please come!
