Wow. Yesterday was an amazing experience. My first book signing! I want to start by thanking everyone that came out to support me. It meant the world to me! My very first customer was a little boy named Jacob from Zionsville. I had a blast talking to him and all the kids that came after – including my cousin’s kids Aidan, Kendal, and Parker. Other visitors included Eric, Matthew, Ben, Lydia, and Alex, who all belong to colleagues of mine. Of course, my little boy Noah and his cousin Colby also came to join in the festivities. Thank you all!! I hope this is the first of many signings for many different books that I write. Which leads me to my topic today…what’s next?
So when I first wrote BoilerMAKER, I didn’t think I would have any interest in doing another school–unless it was Seton Hill where I completed my MFA. But the idea has been thrown out there by several to do something similar for other campuses. With the overarching goal of getting kids excited about the idea of going to college, I am open to the option of creating something for other universities.
So the big question is…what school should be next??? I know what I am thinking, but I want to hear what you have to say. Let’s take a vote! Which institution of higher education will be the most popular and should be the next on the list for a children’s book??? Please post your answers in the comments section. I’ll be anxious to see what you all come up with! I’ll be back… 🙂
