We held a book signing last month at Chevalier’s Books, a fabulous independent bookstore in LA’s Larchmont Village.
We had a HUGE turnout — Radar and I signed and sold nearly 70 books that day.
Here, at last, are some pictures from the big event. Thanks to Chevalier’s owner Filis Winthrop and manager Erica Luttrell and to everyone who came out to Chevalier’s on a Saturday afternoon to support the book!
You can find Chevalier’s on the web here, buy books from them here, and follow them on Facebook here. The folks there are delightful, they support local authors, and they’re just fun to talk to, so stop on by!
And an extra special shout-out to Cathy Kim, the Santillis, and the Barnes/Kuhn/Dittlinger family, all of whom bought a bunch of extra copies to give to friends, teachers, and librarians. (Apologies to the B/K/D clan for not getting you all in one photo.)

YA novelist Kathy McCullough (author of Don’t Expect Magic and Who Needs Magic?) dropped by and brought along her friend, children’s author Suzy Becker (left) and Suzy’s daughter, Aurora. Check out Suzy’s charming blog here, and Kathy’s here.
And last but not least…everyone else!
(Thanks to event photographer/blogwife Jennifer Casey for taking pictures!)
We also had a special signing later for our friends Tom and Suzanne Masenga (left, with Mike Sfregola and Sue Shanley), who bought several copies to give as gifts. Thanks, guys!
