Holiday Book Signings to Benefit Children with Serious Illnesses

Cookies for Kids will be hosting two holiday book signings for me in Nashville during the Christmas season to benefit the charity Special Spaces (Specialspaces.org). The organization has been given a storefront at Hickory Hollow Mall where they will sell gourmet cookies, do gift wrapping, and other special activities including my book signings!
I will be signing copies of my books The Mayberry Poem - A Tribute to Mayberry and How to Promote Your Book on a Shoestring Budget on Wednesday night, December 17 at 5 PM, and on Monday afternoon, December 22 at 2PM.

Cookies for Kids is located in the lower level of Hickory Hollow Mall near Sears in the "Real Estate" store front. Proceeds will benefit Special Spaces, a non-profit organization focused on making a difference in the lives of children with life threatening illnesses.

The Mayberry Poem - A Tribute to Mayberry
is a compilation of poetry about "The Andy Griffith Show." Each poem pays tribute to a character, episode, or theme from "The Andy Griffith Show" or simply honors the fictional town of Mayberry itself with its small-town values and simple "good ole' days" way of life. The poems range from humorous limericks to thought-provoking verses about the things that still make Mayberry resonate with viewers today. The book contains 204 poems about Mayberry written by over 60 different poets from 20 states as well as Washington, D.C. It also features photographs of Mount Airy, NC, the town where Andy Griffith grew up and which inspired Mayberry.

How to Promote Your Book on a Shoestring Budget takes authors step by step, through developing a marketing strategy, writing a press release, contacting the media, setting up a book signing, and much, much more.

Cookies for Kids will carry autographed copies of the book throughout the holidays, so if you cannot make it to one of the book signings, stop by and pick up a book and some cookies anyway! It's for a good cause! Call 615-530-8218 for more information.
