Move Over Joe Biden, I’m Taking The Train to Wilmington

There is now another reason to put Delaware on the map. Of course the tiny little state (America’s First State!) has tax free shopping—many of us Philadelphians commute across the border for our electronics and alcohol (is it illegal to bring liquor across state lines?). And then there’s Joe Biden, the potential vice president who walks through the mean streets of Wilmington with his Joe Six Packs and Jane Hockey Moms. And it’s home to a very cool Barnes & Noble located right next to the Concord Mall.

What makes this B&N so cool? Because it’s hosting me! Yup, I’m having my first ever solo book signing, reading and Q&A at the Wilmington B&N on Friday, October 24th at 6:30pm. And the store is so nice and friendly that they’ve already posted signs, displays and posters promoting the event. Check it out:

  

How cool is that?

I’ve never seen my face in a bookstore before. It’s so surreal. That’s me. On a poster!

And to celebrate the event, I’m announcing the latest winner of the October Giveaway Extravaganza!

Congratulations…Book Junkie!

Your name was selected via a random drawing for correctly answering the Question of the Week:

In my Flipbook for Amigas and School Scandals, it says that Mariana and her friends are planning a “road trip.” Where does the Flipbook say they are planning on going?

Answer: Cornell


The Cornell scenes are actually some of the funniest chapters in Amigas and School Scandals. I hope you all check it out when the book launches in November!

POP-CULTURE RANT: Phillies!

OMG! They’re going to the World Series. They’re actually going! Wow. I’m telling you folks, I think the curse may be lifting. If they win, creating the first championship in Philadelphia in a quarter Century, you will never hear the end of the little William Penn statue on the top of the Comcast Building. Mark my words—that little dude could become real famous, real quick. Even faster than Joe the Plumber.

Everybody at school is so excited! The following Wednesday we're supposed to show our Phillies spirit by wearing the colors and t-shirts! The students are trying to use the excuse of the Phillies winning to stop the teachers from assigning homework and giving out tests XD
