What is better than finding you are one of the featured items of the day? Woohoo! So glad there's no mention of price per pound. :~)
Then you find there's a lovely display with posters and plants, and folks are walking past with fliers about your work!
Your friends come out and support you AND you meet fantastic new people and sell many, many books!
Besties from different parts of your life meet for the first time!
Your last customer you've never met before is named Lucy, and she just happens to be dressed just like you. All the way down to her teeny tiny Chucks! She's excited about your book that is now her book.
Is she not adorable? Thanks to her sweet folks for allowing me to share her picture.
What a fantastic day. Special thanks to Dave, the South Hill Costco manager; Pennie Clark Ianniciello, Costco Book Buyer; Assistant Buyer for Children books, Melissa McMeekin; and my Scholastic editor Rotem Moscovich!
And of course kudos to all my supportive friends and family. How did I not end up with a photo of Holly Cupala and her purchases? IT WAS A HUGE STACK.
Thanks again, my dear friends!
