We sold out!
Sheree Klemites Nielsen, Linda O'Connell, Faye Adams, (seated) contributing writers published in Nurturing Paws, an anthology edited by Lynn C. Johnston, published by Whispering Angel Press SOLD OUT of books in two hours, at indepenedent bookstore, Main Street Books in St. Charles, MO. Vicki Erwin, Propietor.
We had a blast. Diane Peters from CHAMP brought a mild-mannered service assistance dog who acted as our "mascot" or perhaps magnet. When I think of service dogs, I imgaine golden retrievers or labs, not a full size black poodle wearing a Cardinal baseball cap, and Cardinal's bandana around his neck.
Sales were slow at first, but after noon, the streets of this quaint, little, historic river town filled with shoppers and diners and book lovers. I gave away little stuffed Ty dogs to some of the children and even an adult or two.
Imagine peering into the open door of a book store and coming nose to nose with a real dog. Lots of kiddos tugged their parents' hands. Well you know how it is, babies and puppies upstage everything. We loved it! Thanks to everyone who came out to support us, especially Lynn and Teri and Gabe.
I am having blog problems and still cannot post on some of your blogs.
