The book signing at Art Expressions in Melbourne Florida

OMC it was a wonderful book signing. First of all, it was at Art Expressions in Melbourne, Florida. It's this really beautiful art gallery and custom frame shop.

Here are some pictures to show you the highlights of the evening...

First of all, HH (that's Lou for those who don't know my nickname for her - HH is short for Her Highness) sat at a table with flowers, a poster of me and some books all wrapped in Christmas paper. The wrapping paper had pawprints on it (HH made it to keep with the Max theme).

As you can see, Flat Max (one of my stunt doubles and my official representative at this affair) sat on top of the poster - except when he climbed down to have his picture taken with some of the customers.

There were lots of people there... Jody (very wonderful shop owner and hostess for the evening) made sure they all knew why HH was there. Here's Jody with Flat Max...

HH signed many, many books... Here she is signing one for a man in a Santa hat... (pssssst... he's not the real Santa...)

And here's Flat Max having his picture taken with lots of folks...

(This man had on red boots and had bells on his shoelaces... Very festive indeed!)

Anyway, HH sold lots of books and left even more with Jody. It was a beautiful night. The shop was all decorated for the holidays and I just have to tell Jody that I'm sending her pawhugs and a big thanks for doing all this to help promote my book. Thanks Jody...

Here's just a little corner of Jody's shop. Isn't it beautiful?

What a night... It was pawsome!!!

Book is great, HH outdoes herself with this one! Flat Max should go on the road...share this pawsitive experience with others! Giving at least 3 copies this season to folks owned by their cats. Write on.
