My hotel room was on the 40th floor of the Westin. That's the view out my window.
I had been invited to ICRS by Comfort Publishing, publisher of several of my books for boys 8 – 13. They had an attractive booth in and end location.
Comfort Publishing produced a nice poster for my signing, and ran an ad in the daily show paper.
ICRS is probably the largest trade show for Christian bookstores and the products they sell. Book publishers exhibited there along with gift companies, music and film companies, and many others.
I was there to sign copies of my new book, When the Lights Go Out. This is an action-adventure, with a terrorist plot, that will also make sure that kids never forget what happened on 9/11. It will be released on August 1, in time for the 10th anniversary of 9/11.
Tucked inside each signed book was a bookmark I'd printed with the covers of several of my books, along with contact information.
