It's not yet available on the Amazon, Barnes & Noble and the like (watch this space for thrilling prize draw and promotional announcements), but the book parcel's arrival was well timed. I was able to take them with me to yesterday's Ocean County Library BookFest, in Tom's River, New Jersey.

I made my first sale to a young lad of (I think) about 13 or 14 who read the blurb, then went off to fetch his mom to buy the book for him. About twenty minutes later, I got up to stretch my legs and wander about for a bit. His mom spotted me. She came over and said 'I thought you'd like to know, Zack's over in the corner, engrossed in your book.' A few minutes after I got back to my table, Zack came over to tell me he was leaving, then added 'I just wanted you to know, your book is awesome!'

How's your weekend going?
