Good Day at the Bookstore!

My friend, author Janie Emaus, and I met for lunch earlier this week, then popped into the nearby bookstore to check out a book or two...

Namely, our own Kelly Parra’s GRAFFITI GIRL, which we easily found in the faced-out position--and five copies, no less. Here I am, standing by her baby!


On the other aisle, also prominently turned out was my book, TOP TEN USES FOR AN UNWORN PROM DRESS. Here’s Janie as a display model.


So three cheers for the chain bookstores, who are doing a great job of getting our books into the stores, and to all the booksellers out there who are gracious enough to feature them!

Kelly and I hope you all find some time to relax with a good book over this Memorial Day Weekend, and have a safe and fun holiday.

Steph, you just made my day. Every time I boot up the Internet today, I see that picture of myself (Yes, YA FRESH is my home page) and I cringe. (Clearly I love Kelly's book enough to sacrifice my own vanity!) So thanks for that wonderful compliment!

Kelly Parra said...

Tina, stop that cringing! You take lovely pictures and I think you have the friendliest smile! And Steph wait until you meet Tina in person, she's like the coolest person to hang out with. :) :)

Kelly, you'd be the total winner of any cute and cool contest...but I'll back off and take your compliment. Thanks so much! :)

Thanks for the hair comment Steph. When you have curly hair, it's all about the product and I think I've found the right one. For this month, at least. Tina and I had lots of fun taking those photos. But even better, we were holding up great books!

Hi, Janie (waving since she's currently out-of-town). Yes, taking these were fun, and we're going to have plenty more this July, huh, rooming at National!

And Steph, yes, Janie has magnificient hair!
