On Shelves

While the "What's Your Hobby?" contest is still going on until Friday, I thought I'd share the first sighting of Graffiti Girl on the shelf.

See? With the big blue autographed sticker on the front? :) :)

All I can say is that it brings an instant smile to my face to see my book on the shelf. I've been slowly getting positive feedback from readers, and it becomes a little more real to me each day.

I'm also excited about my first book signing this weekend. This is the display they have for me--so awesome and nice of them!

I met the managers this past weekend and they were very easy to get along with and friendly, so I know I'll have a good experience even if I'll be really, really nervous! :) :)
