This just made my day!

Just have to tell you all about my exciting days at the Pirate Festival. It was so good to see my pirate friends again and re-connect with new ones. I was signing away in the stifling heat, when a young man at the age of eleven came up to my table. He had on a big beautiful smile and seemed rather shy. His mother told me that he is also a writer and has won several awards and reads at a high school level. I was very impressed and eager to hear more as I congratulated him. His mom said last night they were looking for more books to read and said that she was looking on Amazon and my books came up. She read a little bit about it and the young man recognized my photo from the Vero Beach Pirate Festival program that I was featured in. So, his mom said he was so excited and really wanted to get my books and meet me! I felt so honored.

There was also a young girl who was standing waiting to take her turn to pick from the treasure chest as it was at my table. She looked up and said “Hey, I have that book!” and pointed to “Sarafina and the Pirate’s Spyglass” just out of nowhere! I tell you, days like this make me so happy that I have been given the chance to enter into someone’s life! Just made my day!
