This week I’m celebrating Authors.

First up is Shelby Bach. The fourth book in her Ever Afters series just came out and she had her release party at Green Bean Books.


There were cupcakes, games, prizes, and lots of fun. I enjoyed the creativity and dedication of her fans- a few of them had driven from Washington just to see her!

As you know, Shelby included us in the acknowledgements so I just had to get a signed copy of her book. I even took a selfie with her to add to my Authors I’ve Met album.



Green Bean Books is excited to be part of Rox in Sox– a children’s music and book festival who uses their free events to collect shoes, socks, and books to donate to kids around the world. I helped with the author’s line up and includes Cathy Camper, Jennifer Coughlin, Valarie Pearce, and Dawn Prochovnic.

I even got to be part of a group interview for the event on the local news! I was nervous the whole time leading to it but my one little word this year is FAIL- to try something new or different regardless of the outcome. Luckily it went fine. I was trying so hard to control my hand gestures! Here’s the video:

My Audio/Video Pick of the Week is Tim Federle’s graduation keynote speech at Hamline University.

What are you celebrating this week?

    Earl, I listened to your interview and you did just fine. Good tone and presence as you delivered your information-loved the Federle speech too.
