OMG. That's all I can say. The Gift Store manager is arranging for us to come visit over spring break in Oregon so all the school children will be there. Bringing lots of books and perhaps even some of the coloring books. Our book will be for sale after that in their Gift Shop. So we're actively into the marketing phase. Oprah - go visit your neighbor's house and pick up an autographed copy, okay? She will happily share it with you.
This is in one sense truly SCARY and in another totally EXHILARATING. It's very heartening to see the positive reception our book is receiving and for that we're ecstatic.
The best part - I get to see my sister! YAY. She wants to come to the signing at the Aquarium. ROAD TRIP!!!
