After a really enjoyable and fruitful weekend of book signings in the French Quarter in New Orleans, I received great news: My children’s book, Jim Limber Davis: A Black Orphan in the Confederate White House will be part of the Accelerated Reader Program used by many schools. This is a major coup.
I enjoyed my tour of duty this weekend, meeting some really cool (and some really strange) people. The weather cooperated this time, and though it was quite warm, there was no rain, so I was able to man a table outside the two locations: Tisket-A-Tasket on Friday and the 1850’s House on Saturday. Best of all, I was able to sell a ton of books and set up some appointments to present my program in some schools in Mobile and other places.
This morning, I’m preparing classes and handling some other details related to my writing business. Today is my long day at the university: I won’t get home until late.
