It was a most excellent Author Moment.  Thank you to our audience and to Vanessa Gregory who spoke of her adventures with creating her first two books.  Vanessa is currently in active pursuit of the third book’s input from you out there.  You can connect with her project blog by going to: . Vanessa has quite a retinue of YouTube videos…my favorite- The Writer’s Process – if I get this right you can watch right here.  The music was great with Vanessa’s ukelele and voice and Megan Orth providing voice harmony for a few originals and cover songs. We should be doing this again when the 3rd title is released – with tunes, I hope.  Great night….here’s the video:



So, while you are hanging out during  vacation, stop by and drop a raffle ticket into the bucket of your choice…winning tickets drawn 1/7/2011.  Prizes include:  $15 Titcomb’s Bookshop Certificate, an autographed copy of For the Win by Cory Doctorow, a copy of Dash & Lily’s Book of Dares by Rachel Cohn and David Levithan and a kit to create felted flowers (good for hats, pins and ?).  Have a great holiday and beyond.
