Book launch at Books of Wonder

Saturday was the Snappsy book launch at the AMAZING children’s book store Books of Wonder in New York City. It was an incredible day and the support and love was mind-blowing and overwhelming. Tim and I read the book and then sat down to sign…and sign….and sign. Thank you to everyone who came and waited in line!

I’m still processing the whole event. Did it really happen? Were all those people really there? Did we really sign books for three-and-a-half hours?
