1 Zany Book Launch

I had my book launch for 1 Zany Zoo on Saturday and it was a huge success!  Ruth and Pam at Barnes & Noble did a fantastic job setting up the children's area and getting the word out in the preceding weeks.   I did my part by emailing friends and spreading the word on Facebook.

I made goodie boxes for the kids with animal-themed items and Cheerios Treats to tie in the contest.

One of the best things I did (at the suggestion of another writer - can't remember who) was to have my friends and family autograph a copy of my book.  It's going to be a wonderful keepsake!

We had a great turnout - more than 90 people came and we sold 102 books - it far exceeded my expectations!  Thanks to everyone who took the time to help me celebrate the release of 1 Zany Zoo!

  5. Congrats on a great book launch. I love your idea of having friends and fam sign your book for a keepsake.

    I'll be passing along this sage advice to everyone I know.
