Hello from Chicago! This past week Book Tour Part Two took me to 10 different independent book stores or toy stores in and around Chicago and 2 in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Out of the 12 stores, there were 8 who said they would order copies of my book to sell in their store. Yea! The other 4 stores, for various reasons, were misses; Two only carried hard cover children’s books, another only took children’s books on consignment another was not ordering new books because of low sales. Oh well, you can’t win them all. Part Two of the Book Tour was not as successful as Part One but all together I had a 77% success rate…not bad. And this time I got to spend a delightful afternoon with the 12 bright and talkative women of a Mequon, Wisconsin book club! After the discussion of their scheduled adult book, I got to pass out copies of Lonely Lola Ladybug, read it to them and answer their questions about creating the book and getting it published. Everyone went home with a copy of Lonely Lola Ladybug and I left with a big smile!
