All Sorts of Cool Stuff!

Whew!  What a wonderful, whirlwind week! This past weekend I presented with two other members of the Class of 2k8 - Laurel Snyder (Up and Down the Scratchy Mountains) and Jenny Meyerhoff (Third Grade Baby) - at the Southern Festival of Books in Nashville, TN.  Our panel, The Class of 2k8:  Three Debut Middle Grade Novelists Tell All, was a blast!  Here we are, signing our books after our presentation.  I wasn't sure I'd have books available, because my release date is this week (um...tomorrow, to be exact.  Two short hours from now.  But hey, who's counting? ;-)  )  But I *did* have books, and guess what?  People bought them!  I signed them!  It was totally surreal.  (Laurel is far right, Jenny center, and I'm far left.  The Bean - my four year old - is far, far left.  Love that kiddo!)  Another pic of me signing can be found here, at my friend Kathy Rhodes's blog.  Thanks for the shout-out, Kathy!  ;-)  

Oh!  And the book trailer!  It's up, it's running, and you, too, can watch it if you just click here!  Hope you enjoy - please, let me know your thoughts!  

Tomorrow is the official launch date of AWODTD.  I'm participating in an Educator's Appreciation event at my local Barnes & Noble. The nation's best CRM, Robbie Bryan, tells me my books are already on the shelves.  Bringing the camera for my first in-store Autumn sighting!  Wheeeeeeeeeee!

Hi Kristin,

Congratulations on the debut of Autumn today!! I received your email and will be happy to promote the book up my way and hope to someday be doing a signing with you somewhere in the mountains when Road to Tater Hill is out next September.

Best of luck and have fun!
