School visits and photos from the vault

If you're wondering what happened to my last post about Amazon running out of my book on day 2, I've decided to take it down because I'm really not a fretting kind of person. I'm going to let my editor and agent worry about the business end of things.

So, I'm off to do my first school presentation tomorrow. Three classes in one day! We're going to learn about dogsledding - I have a mini dogsled with gear, and maybe we'll do some dogsled races down the school halls. If everyone leaves with all their teeth, it will be a success!

I'll post pictures if I can remember to take them.

In the mean time, here's a few pictures from the vault.
