BOOK LAUNCH PARTY REMINDER (Sorry for shouting - just super excited...)
Please join me as I celebrate the release of my new book Hypnosis Harry tomorrow at 11:30 am at the Jensen Beach Barnes and Noble. There will be a reading, crafts, photo booth, signing, and (drum roll please) a raffle for this super cute Hypnosis Harry basket.
I owe an extra special thanks to my illustrator, Sarita Rich, for sending me art supplies and a fabulous, personalized note to include. Can't wait to see who wins!

Reasons Why I Love My Illustrator Sarita Rich:
(1) She's sooooooo talented.
(2) She's a REALLY hard worker - wait until you read her post on Tara Lazar's blog. You'll see. She basically did the HYPNOSIS HARRY spread while giving birth. I can't even eat and watch TV at the same time. This woman makes humans and books simultaneously.
(3) She's extremely collaborative. Check out the above picture. That is stuff she sent to me to for my launch party. Amazing. And did you notice she drew ME on the pocket watch craft? And without wrinkles!?! And she sent me bookmark and coloring sheet files. Love that. Love her.
(4) She is smart and savvy at all this book stuff - from her emails to her website - she's a total pro.
(5) She laughs at my jokes. Always a plus.
Well there are many more reasons but you get the idea. So if you ever write a book - remember to trust the illustrator. Especially if she is Sarita.

I do a lot (a lot, a lot) of events for kids but here is one for the big people.
I am hosting a program this Thursday, April 7th, from 6-7 pm about writing picture books. It will be at the Elliot Museum in Stuart, Florida. I'll chat about some basic guidelines for developing your manuscript, as well as an overview of how exactly people get published (Hint: Unicorns are involved) (Okay not really). Anyhoo I hope to see you there. There will be a cash bar, munchies, and free admission to museum members. I will also be selling and signing copies of #mindyourmonsters and #hypnosisharry.
