Behind the Scenes at Last week’s sale of The Erie Canal Brides Collection

Here are some “Behind the Scenes” at last week’s book signing. My husband took several pictures and my daughter Christy posted them on her blog of my book signing for The Erie Canal Brides Collection last weekend at Barnes and Noble. But I wanted to share some of my thoughts with you this week and especially a delightful video of the grandkids playing at the wonderful kid’s stage in the back of Barnes and Noble! If you have children or grandchildren, you are missing out on a wonderful place to take them if you haven’t been there yet.

The manager Taylor set up a table for me and my husband to the right  of the entry to the store. We were busy almost the whole two hours we were there with friends and family stopping by and several others I had never met who were interested in hearing about and purchasing a Christian historical novel collection.

Of course, I enjoyed it immensely, but I was blown away when I saw this video with all the fun our grandkids had in the back of the store. While we grownups had fun talking books up front, they acted out their own stories in the back. It is a wonderful place where the stage makes story time come alive for children! Wish I had one for my house–for the grandkids and ME! ‘Nuff said! …Except I hope you will make a trip soon even though this video has some glitches.

  1. Rose, how wonderful to see your grandchildren in action! They are so precious!

    I’ve done book signings at Barnes and Noble for my children’s books and love the stage in the children’s area. In fact, I once did a story hour for my picture book, WHO IS JESUS? My little granddaughter Annamarie sat with me on the stage and turned the pages as I read. The children in the audience really related to her. :).

    I’m thrilled that you had a successful signing! I remember my kids making up plays and acting out stories. It’s wonderful to see the younger ones having the same kind of fun ?
