Churchville PA Author Visit

I had a lovely Author Visit at the Churchville Elementary School in Bucks County, PA.  I really love reading to the children, for that’s the best part about being a children’s author.  Churchville is very special to me, since my daughter is a teacher there and all of my now internationally performed children’s plays were first performed there.  During my four reading sessions, I read to about 95 kindergarten students, and about 60 first graders and 80 second graders… Such fun!  This was all part of a School Fundraising Event as well.  Special thanks to Gail Gorgol, the school Librarian, as well as my daughter Kerry Gallagher for organizing the event.

Happy Thanksgiving! – Thank you for the 1278 hits on the CureJM Fundraiser site too!

I was part of a Local Author Event at “my” Barnes & Noble in Vestal NY.  There were about a dozen authors there with many different kinds of books.  I enjoyed meeting fellow SBPRA author Maria Clark who was there with her first book, Lousy Luck Lucy, which was illustrated by Kalpart who illustrates all my books.  It was nice to meet everyone, and especially nice to be able to go retrieve my books from the shelves and then return them when the event was over.  Our CRM, Kate Fabrizio, is awesome.  I am looking forward to my next book signing there on December 15th fro

Your child’s name in my next book…Deadline Extended!

Addie is doing all right now, but sometimes it’s very hard for her.  This is another reminder about the CureJM Fundraiser now underway.  50% of the cost of my books goes to the CureJM Foundation to help find a cure for Addie and all the kids like her.  Anyone who purchases a book through the http://sbpra.com/curejm/ site can put in the comments section the first name of a child to be included in the Acknowledgements of my new book to be released in early 2013!  This offer is good through the end of November, or until I have to sign-off on the manuscript…  I’m hoping to have lots of names!!!

(Addie is smiling here because her name is in Gimme-Jimmy!)
