A week before going on Good Morning America I was at the LA Times Festival of Books at USC and I got to have a lot of fun, see some great books, and meet LeVar Burton (from Reading Rainbow, Star Trek, and more!).
It was a great day…
It was at the University of Southern California campus, which I’m very familiar with… Like I mentioned, I got to meet some amazing authors/illustrators and other great people. Here is Travis Hanson, author & illustrator, who runs Bean Leaf Press
Then outside, Karla and I tag-teamed the lines–I bought two books at the bookstore booth, one for each of us, while she waiting in the signing line. It was fun and when it became my time to briefly get my book signed LeVar congratulated me again about the GMA segment. He said, “Getting on national television is HUGE!” I agree! I’m so happy I could thank him and show him my book!
Right after that I went to try and ship my book off to NY since they wanted the book ASAP, but it didn’t work out exactly since they needed the book by Tuesday morning and last pickup was a couple hours previous to my attempted drop off that Saturday.
Thanks for reading!
