Book Signing Fun





My Cora Cooks Pancit book signing was a smashing hit! Barnes & Noble sold out of the books they ordered for the signing, and then they sold 12 of my own copies that I brought in as backup. How fun is that!

The most fun part of it for me was seeing lots of friends from church, neighbors, in-laws, SCBWI friends, and friends of my mother-in-law (she sent the announcement to everyone she's ever known). It was quite the party! I brought a big pot of pancit and my husband handed out samples the whole time while I signed and chatted and hugged and "Wow - I haven't seen you in 2 months!" There was a lot of that, because I've been in bed for 2 months with severe morning sickness and dizziness. Being in the second trimester now rocks!

Hi Kristi,
I just found your blog. How fun to see pictures of you signing CORA COOKS PANCIT on your side of the country - much of what I've been doing over here. I LOVE the illustrations. Every where I go to sign, people are talking about the illustrations.
A million thanks,
Dorina
