At the Orange County Children’s Book Festival

We had fun today meeting people and signing books at the Orange County Children’s Book Festival.┬áThe Orange County Children’s Book Festival is in it’s 10th year. In 2012, there were over 150 authors, more than 25 illustrators, dozens of storytellers and great family-oriented entertainers.┬áThe Festival featured over 125 booksellers, educational exhibitors and related vendors. More than 35,000 people attended the Festival last year.


My co-authors Josh & Harrison. They’re much better at selling books than I.

We were invited to present on the MG/YA stage. Below is a photo of Josh and I during the question and answer portion of the presentation. And yes, I am wearing a Nimpentoad t-shirt. What are the odds?
