Signing Little Hands & Stories
"Your wrote this?"
"This is your name?"
She got excited about the prospect for some reason. Her other friends gathered at the table too. I normally get quite anxious around children.
"Can I get your book for free?" she asked me.
"I'm afraid you can't," I said, "They belong to the bookstore. But I can give you this!" I handed her a couple of Moments bookmarks and signed them for her and her friends.
Then, Yara offered me her hand and asked me to do the same.
"Sign on your hand?" I asked.
She nodded excitedly. I obliged with a big smile.
She then sat back on the chair and began going through the book. She wanted to read something so I helped her find a story. She read the first couple of paragraphs from Lemonade & Snowflakes.
I had a wonderful time at Friday's book signing. So for all those who turned up and bought Moments, and those who stopped for a chat, thank you.
