First Book Signing in Ontario!

60th birthday

Hi everyone, I’ve run away from home.  Okay not really but I have flown the coop for a few days to come visit my family in Ontario.   It’s my mom’s 60th birthday today and she had no idea I was coming.  It was so fun to surprise her and I still can’t believe we actually pulled it off.  It wasn’t easy let me tell you because while I’m here I’ve arranged to do a book signing at the Chapters in Oshawa Center Mall and I was sure she was going to see the publicity for that event.  How she didn’t I have no idea.

I’m not sure how many of my readers live in the area but if you do I would so love to meet you in person.  I’ll be there signing books from 12 to 2 this Saturday (and I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a teeny tiny bit afraid of no one showing up).

Well I’m off to snuggle my adorably cute nieces.  I’ll be back tomorrow morning with the 52 weeks of organizing post.  Can’t wait to hear about your week!!

    I’ve been reading for a few months, and I love what you write!! I live pretty close to Oshawa and would have definitely come to your book signing, but I have to work all day on Saturday. Good luck, I’m sure lots of people will show up!

    I am in Kitchener. If I didn’t have my daughter’s 5th birthday party I’d come. Have a fantastic time at the signing – I’m sure it will be a hit.

    I’m a big fan from Ontario but live in St. Jacob’s or I would have come for sure. Maybe I’ll get lucky and you’ll come to a closer Chapters to me :)
