Bookstore event went off well yesterday at Good Buy Books. The kids and I had a great time. We read some chapters from book 1, A Surprise for Gappy, and on learning about the secret world of modern-day vampires that co-exist with regular humans - regs - and that children can inherit the vampire gene from their parents, one of the kids turned to his dad and asked him hopefully, "Dad, are you a vampire?" then was disappointed when his dad said no. We also talked about bullies at school, which Gappy faces, and discussed what secret powers we would like to have. My friend, Bob Shenise, came with his video camera and did some filming, interviews, and still shots, which I look forward to posting. Picked up some contacts from the bookstore owner Lynne for the local library and another private bookstore in Stuyvesant Plaza. Very grateful to my choir friend, Doris, for helping bring this author event to fruition. All in all, a good day.
