This week we ended up at the Farmer’s Market in Papillion, where we didn’t sell even one single book! But on the drive home, we stopped to eat at the Flying J truck stop. Kody pitched his book to our waitress, and before long he had sold 3 books to all 3 waitresses there! Plus one of mine!
Today he had a great experience in school. He has been a particular challenge to one certain teacher who requested that he stay after school this evening for being tardy to class. When he told her he had an interview with a reporter, she didn’t believe him. So when he explained the interview was about his new book, she made the comment, “I didn’t think you were smart enough to write a book, let alone read one!”
So Kody produced one of his books and when she read the first page, she teared up and was totally floored by his accomplishment. Later, during the interview with Dennis Buckley, editor of the Neighborhood Extra, Kody did a great job of answering the questions posed by Dennis. The story is due out May 15.
Tomorrow, the folks at Indigo Books have been gracious enough to provide us a space to sell copies of Kody’s new book, Wild Hearts. So if you are down at the Farmer’s Market in the morning, please stop in. I will be selling my new book, The Woods of Bloody Mary, as well.
