Great Event in Hackensack, MN                          Art-a-Whirl  Northeast Minneapolis



The Boutiques this year were wonderful.  Majestic Oaks, Rice Creek, Holly-Day, Applewood, and Chickadee were fun and many books were sold.  Peggy’s in Roseville was especially good.  I did book signings at most of them and I always appreciate that.

Art-a-Whirl was interesting and filled with so many interesting people.  I enjoyed anyone who came to my table to chat.

More book clubs this year.  I love to answer questions about my book and I gain insight too.

I sold books along the North Shore at many of the great shops.  Will go back next year.

We had an October event in Brainerd that was good but a long drive.

Great event in Lino Lakes in October.

North Oaks Boutique is unique and people were very interested in our books.

Minneapolis Women’s Art Festival  Busy and fun with beautiful music all day long.

I reprinted “Warning! Family Vacations May Be Hazardous to Your Health.”  I plan on getting it to the resorts in 2017.

Looking forward to 2017.  Thanks to all.
