Hello. I have another great story to tell you. I was at the Beaufort Pirate Festival in North Carolina just recently, signing books and a young girl came to my table with her mother. She looked up at me with big brown eyes and a smile a mile wide. Her mother had explained that they saw me at the Swansboro Pirate Festival which is a nearby town, a few months ago, and they had bought my book “Sarafina and the Pirate’s Spyglass’ the first in the series. She then told me that her and her daughter had been reading it together but then the little girl had taken it a few days later to read on her own and the mother said she was upset because she really liked the story and wanted to know what happened next!
She said she was so glad to have found me at this event so they could get Book Two and have me sign it. All the while this cute little girl was just staring at me like I was a Rock Star! I was so surprised that they had followed me to the next event. I smiled back at her while talking to her mom about my book and she gently tugged on my skirt and finally found the courage to speak. Those dark brown eyes so big, she said in a hushed voice “I really like your book.”
I wanted to cry I was filled with such love! I signed her second book and we said our good-byes. And as she was slowly walking away she looked back over her shoulder at me and I gave her a wink of my eye.
I was never so happy to be followed by someone!
