NAKED! Book Tour Report

Signing books with I'M BORED and NAKED! author Michael Ian Black

I had SO MUCH FUN on my very first book tour! Here are my blog posts (and many photos) about what happened:

Part 1: Prep, angst and anticipation

Part 2: Finally meeting Michael Ian Black in person, B&N event in NYC, talking with young readers

Part 3: Snooping through Laurent Linn's office, Simon & Schuster Children's meet-and-greet, my fairy godmother

Part 4: Talking to kindergarten and first grade classes at Porter Square Books (Cambridge, MA) and James Patterson indie bookstore grants

Part 5: Talking to young readers at Northshire Books Saratoga (Saratoga Springs, NY), kindergarten classes at Division St. Elementary, final words

 Just before the children arrived at Northshire Bookstore Saratoga. Photo: Rachel Person.
