Southern and Central Illinois Book Signings!

I had such an amazing time last weekend in Southern Illinois and Champaign! I had record-breaking sales, so THANK YOU to everyone who came! Your support means so much to me!

I started Saturday at the Cisne Spring Fling. It was a steady rain all morning, so the firefighters allowed us to move inside their station. Thanks to them—my first signing in a fire station! Despite the rain, we had a huge turnout!

From Cisne I went to Mt. Erie. It was still raining, so I was thankful for the roof of Crystal’s Country Cream, and the good coffee and food! Great turnout here as well, despite the cold rain! Thanks so much to Crystal and the Mt. Erie visitors!

Sunday morning we left Southern Illinois and traveled home, stopping in Champaign for a book signing at Aroma Cafe. Got to visit with some friends I hadn’t seen in a long time! Many thanks to Aroma and to the people who stopped by!

I used to work at Dr. Downs' animal clinic and babysit her daughter when I lived in the Champaign area!
