So this past Friday I went to my first book signing here in New Jersey! We're sadly neglected here on the shore. Then my amazing critique partner and author, Toni De Palma held a book signing at my alma mater, Georgian Court University! So exciting.
She was signing from 11 to 1 and I had hoped to be there right from the beginning. That didn't happen, sadly. I had to make several stops along the way and found myself there rather late. But I made it! Got my books signed! And hung out with Toni and her amazing publicist, Christine Marie, who you'll get to learn more about here on my blog on Thursday.
Here are some of the pictures I took at the signing.
|Yummy! They had a wonderful refreshment table set up. My 3yo ate tons of cheese and grapes. lol|

The Devil's Triangle
When 17 year old Cooper dies in an attempt to burn down his school, he finds himself in the afterlife. Lucy, the Devil's sister who has crossed party lines, decides to give Cooper another shot at heaven. The deal? Cooper returns to Earth and has to find a girl named Grace. The rest is up to him.
While Cooper figures out his mission, he's thrown into the life he's always wanted. Great parents, a spot on the Varsity football team and a real future are all within reach. But what he really wants is Grace, a feisty girl with an abusive boyfriend who can pound Cooper into pulp if he doesn't watch out.
While Lucy plays demonic-puppeteer, clues to an unknown past between Cooper and Grace start to unravel. Cooper discovers that what's keeping him and Grace apart is far more sinister than anything this bad boy could have ever imagined.
Under the Banyan Tree
Irena's not sure where she's headed when she runs away from home--she just wants to leave the trailer she shared with her mamma and daddy far behind. When she stumbles upon the Banyan Tree motel, something tells her it's exactly where she's meant to be. But trouble follows Irena wherever she goes, and the Banyan is no different in this story about what it means to be a family.
Jeremy is a 10 year old science geek who's just trying to get by. When the two bullies grab the owl pellets Jeremy's found in the woods, he loses all hope of studying them under his teacher's microscope. But when Lorelei Eversole, the school cuckoo, steps in, she wins the pellets back. When Jeremy discovers a mysterious, glittering bone inside one of the pellets - a discovery that even a braniac like him can't figure out - he must admit that Lorelei might not be as dopey as she seems. A flying pig, enchanted pies, and a wild adventure all show Jeremy that science has its limits. And that sometimes magic turns up in the most unusual places.
