We had a delightful Summer Shorts release party. It was fun getting to see local authors and illustrators – many who I’ve never even met before. I had a great time, and I hope everyone else did as well. Here are some pictures from the event. Unfortunately my digital camera is not real good these days. They come out all blurry. Fortunately, I took backups with a little disposable. But I haven’t gotten those developed yet. So, you’ll just have to endure these.

Here’s the crowd settling in.

And here’s the authors and illustrators (and me) with some of the contest winners.

And the best thing of all? I got my own book signed. I always try to get the books I edited signed. So far I’m only missing one in my collection.
