Book signings and teaser

Despite the fact that I'm always afraid my book signings will turn out like a bad version of a Junior High dance--me standing idly around trying to look like I'm perfectly happy to not be doing what I came to do, but desperately wishing that I could be on the dance floor--I have two book signings set up this month. (Where I may be sitting idly around trying to look like I'm perfectly happy to not be doing what I came to do, but desperately wishing that I could be on the dance floor--er, I mean, signing books. Although the dance floor would be a great reprieve too.)

Tuesday March 24th at 7pm

Just One Wish

It seemed like a good idea at the time, a foolproof plan, and not something that was likely to get Annika Truman, say, thrown in jail. All she was trying to do was help her six-year-old brother, Jeremy, beat his cancer. He’d been so afraid of his upcoming surgery that she was trying to use some of that “Power of Positive Thinking” everyone keeps talking about.

Annika told Jeremy that she had a genie and still had two wishes left. He could use one for anything he wanted and one to make sure his surgery went well. She knew he’d ask for the new action figure of Teen Robin Hood. It’s all he’d talked about since he started watching the TV series.

But there is no such thing as a foolproof plan where six-year-olds are concerned. Instead, Jeremy asked for the real Teen Robin Hood to come teach him how to shoot arrows. And now Annika has just a couple of days to drive to Hollywood, find the actor who plays Teen Robin Hood—incredibly hot and way too famous Steve Raleigh—and convince him to visit her little brother.

At times like this she could use a genie herself.

Just One Wish, I mean. Not the Jr. High dance-like book signings. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!!!

I really wish we lived closer so I could come see you. :)

Book signings, ugh! Good luck and many good wishes that you'll be the belle of the, er, prom. ;)

Good luck on your book signings! If I were in Arizona, I'd totally be there. =)

Well, sheesh, Janette! You just had to go and schedule your book signings for Tuesdays when I'm going to be in Phoenix for one day (well, Mesa and then Chandler) on SATURDAY.

Hey, good luck! And darn!

Ok, this time I am going to try to get to the Changing Hands book signing! I will even put a reminder on my phone so that I will remember!
