Pete the Popcorn is being released on Amazon.com on February 29th, 2012. We all know that because I TELL YOU EVERY DAY.
What happens then?
We are hitting the road! For the rest of the summer, we are intending on visiting a different festival every weekend, to sell and sign copies of Pete. If anyone knows of a good camper van or small camper for sale, let me know. Because I don’t know how far my little Sebring Convertible and sleeping in seedy motels is going to get us.

Look for our tent– we will be handing out popcorn and balloons to all the kiddos. Along with Pete the Popcorn buttons, too. And hopefully there will be a big lineup of people to purchase the book.
