Fastpitch Filled Saturday


On Saturday, I spent the day selling and signing copies of SCREWBALL at the New Jersey Nightmares Fastpitch Tournament in Mercer County, New Jersey. Although bad weather ended a portion of the tournament, it was nice to see some awesome softball and hang out with some nice moms and players. Thanks for the tent! 

In an interesting twist of fate, one of my former favorite seventh grade students, Katie, was participating with her team and played some nice softball on Saturday. :) It was awesome to see Katie and her mom and it reminded me why I originally sat down to write SCREWBALL. For teen girls, but especially sporty girls, who don't have a lot of teen sports themed lit to choose from. 

On a side note, I need a new pair of sunglasses. I seriously look like a giant fly. How was your weekend? Did anyone watch "Rock of Love" last night? I did and loved it. What did you think of Bret's pick? Have a marvelous Monday! :)

You hardly look like a giant fly! I'm thinking more mysterious author.

You do not look like giant fly.

So glad the signing was good. And what a fun place to sign! Sorry about the weather, but Spring is being fickle this year, I think.

:) Thanks, PJ and Amy.. My daughter keeps 'accidentally' playing with my sunglasses.. Eventually she'll break them and I'll 'have' to buy a new pair. :)

When I wanted a new pair, I would throw my sunglasses on my car seat so I would "accidentally" sit on them, or they might "accidentally" fall out of the car and get scratched/stepped on/left behind.

It didn't take long.

That's a good idea. They're hanging by a thread. One more good pull from Kaci and they're done. :)
