Baby steps

The signing at the Lake Hiawatha Library yesterday was SO much fun – a bunch of friends came by and bought books, and some total strangers came by and bought books, and I had a great time.  Of course, I totally forgot about taking pictures, so just imagine me, sitting at a table with a purple tablecloth, surrounded by adoring fans, okay?

Lined up a few more reviews – should see them in the next few weeks.  Bloggers have been very generous with their time and energy, and I’m really grateful.

And – THIS IS EXCITING _ I have two great pieces of fan art posted to the Gallery page.  Thanks Clara and Gregg!! If you have any gargoyle related artwork, or Smoke, Wings and Stone related artwork, send them over and I”ll post them.

Ahem…first official post…

Well, the book has been out one month.  So far, a 5 star review from the blog Teen Blurb, and another 5 star rating on Goodreads. I’m pretty happy with that.  Two giveaways going on – one on Goodreads, and another as part of the blog tour.  I’ve got about another ten or so reviews lined up, as well as a few author interviews, character interviews, and a list of my Top 5 Comfort Foods.  I think we’re doing pretty good so far.
