Last week I talked about my upcoming Mesa, Arizona booksigning with Janette Rallison. Here’s the follow-up, complete with a few pictures.

Janette lives in the Phoenix area, and I had the pleasure of meeting many of the people in her life. She joked it was like attending her own funeral-- to which I must add that if her funeral ends up being as much fun as this signing, it’s well-worth it to outlive her and attend! :) In addition, we got to meet some teens, teachers, librarians, writers, industry professionals and random shoppers, all who were warm and fun and contributed to a lovely evening.

When the event was over, exhausted and elated, Janette and I clowned around in front of the two-sided sign that the marvelous events manager, Donna Power, had provided for us. Here we are, posing with the side that bore my name:

And now, speaking of good times, have you been over to Stephanie Hale’s MySpace site ( to cast your vote on who should win the Dooney and Bourke bag? If not, walk, don’t run!

I'd love to meet Janette, she sounds like a blast. I can't wait to read her book coming in October, Revenge of the Cheerleaders. Hmmm..that sounds so familar... :)

Thanks for the contest shout-out!

Yes, Kelly and Steph, Janette definitely rocks, and so do her books!

And Steph, I had originally set your MySpace address up as a link for readers to use...but clearly, it didn't work. Next time!

Thanks for all the lovely things you had to say about me--they're all true! It was very fun to do a signing with you. We should definitely turn it into a tradition.

Hi Tina,
It looks like you were having a great time and I've added Janette's book to my TBR pile.

Janette, glad you found us, and yes, we're definitely going to have to keep those signings coming...

And Janie, yes, DO grab some of Janette's books. And by the way, thanks again for that supportive text message you sent me just as the signing was starting. It really gave me a big smile!
