Dec.17th Book-signing at Barnes and Noble

Christmas Book-Signing at B&NThis was the third Christmas that I have had a book-signing forBarnes & Noble Christmas Signing Santa’s Birthday Gift at the Barnes & Noble in Vestal, NY.  It’s such a special time of year, and also a special book.  I also had The Magic Word and Peter and the Whimper-Whineys available.  It was fun to have some repeat buyers who wanted to add my newest book to their collection.

Nice SBPRA Success Story – Thanks, SBG!

Sherrill Cannon – Busy as One of Santa’s ElvesPosted on December 13, 2011

Author Sherrill Cannon is keeping up her busy — and successful — schedule of promoting her work. Cannon’s three rhyming picture books have won SEVEN National Awards this year and Santa’s Birthday Gift is now available at the Washington National Cathedral Store! That was a long-time goal for her. Santa has also been on the best seller list on Amazon for the last several weeks, ranking under 10K overall regularly. It is also part of the “Taste & See” eBook just released by Lorilyn Roberts of the John 3:16 Network. And, Cannon is the featured author on the “What’s Up Sippy Cup?” site this month (as she says, “Don’t laugh”). She is also scheduled for a radio interview on WVIA (Wilkes-Barre, Scranton, PA area next Tuesday) followed by another Barnes & Noble book signing Dec 17th. No wonder Sherrill Cannon is one of SBPRA’s best selling authors. We salute and applaud her efforts!

Santa’s Birthday Gift available at the Washington National Cathedral Museum Store

Enjoy the gift of ChristmasI am thrilled to share the news that Santa’s Birthday Gift is now available at the Washington National Cathedral Museum Store.  This has been a dream of mine since I wrote the story!  I am a graduate of the National Cathedral School , and was also a member of the National Cathedral School faculty for three years. Needless to say, the Cathedral is a very special place for me. I was even a “Page” in the Cathedral Christmas Pageant procession when I was in the eighth grade – and that is a LONG time ago – and when I met my husband of 51 years,  it was on Christmas Eve and we attended the Christmas Eve service at the Cathedral… A very special place!

Wonderful Book-reading Fundraiser at St. Bede’s

StBedesI had such a wonderful time at St. Bede’s, reading Santa’s Birthday Gift (again – I was there last year too) as well as reading The Magic Word as well.  What a wonderful group of children!!  (They asked me to read Peter and the Whimper-Whineys also.  Now I remember how much I miss teaching…!)
