Today we hosted the first of many author signings/meet-n-greet events. The venue was Blue Ridge Books in Waynesville, N.C. I feel grateful to live in a small town with a cool indie book store that hosts many local and regional authors. I wanted the environment to feel relaxed and welcoming, so my partner, Matthew, and I were up early baking peppermint brownies and practicing the art activity to make sure it was easy and fun for the youngsters who attended. I also partnered with the Asheville Museum of Science, a popular attraction in downtown Asheville, to host a giveaway. I want to say thank you to everyone who came out and showed your support. I could not do this without a village of fans, colleagues, family, and friends.
