Jambo!

I had a very good time during the Author Showcase at the Summer Reading Kickoff Carnival 2014! I was amazed at the number of authors there and was lucky to get the center computer desk for my book exhibition.

I set up my display quickly and immediately attracted several visitors. One visitor was a person accompanying a mascot of the Worcester Bravehearts, a local baseball team! Ellen Dolan, the library director, came to visit too!

Towards the middle of the event, traffic was slow. Occasionally, the only thing I could do was sit and wait. I reasoned that since the carnival games were actually in the old Credit Union building next to the library, most families were being attracted to the games. Last year, the games were at the lowest level of the library, which meant many people were heading towards the stairs. Since the Author Showcase was very close to the stairs, I attracted many families and sold more books.

I was surprised, however, at the number of classmates I met at the Carnival. I was even more flabbergasted when a young teacher visited my booth and said she was a friend of my 5th grade math teacher! I also met Mrs. Pope, the librarian from my school’s media center!

Towards the end of the event, I decided to visit other authors at the Showcase. I bought N.E. Castle’s comedy book Loogie the Booger Genie: Prince of Prank. I found out the illustrator of her books was Bret Herholz. I met Bret in March, purchased one of his books and wrote a blog post about him!

I’m excited I sold three books at the event and joined the other authors for a group picture!

Here is a list of websites from some of the other authors.

Hello!

Great news: I have completed the first draft of my 4th book, Danny and the Revenge of the Dinosaurs! All I need to do is edit and illustrate it. This book is about the dinosaurs evolving into smart aliens. Expect it to be published this summer!

Plus, my 5th book, to be called Danny and the Wrath of the Dinosaurs, is halfway through! This book continues on the alien concept and introduces an enormous sub-species of dinosaur, which attacks everything in sight. I’m going to introduce the book in my author showcase at the Summer Reading Kickoff Carnival 2014 from 4 to 6 PM today! This will be the last book in my series about Danny Hoopenbiller.

I am thinking what my 6th book should be. So far, I have no title, so all I can tell you right now is that the book will be the first book in a new (unnamed) trilogy exploring the concept of the multiverse.

I can’t wait to start typing!!!

Adios!
David 

2014 Summer Reading Kickoff Carnival

The SPS Art Festival was totally wicked!

Written By: David T. Lee - May• 04•14

Jambo!

Yesterday I went to the Senior Center in my town to see the SPS Art Festival opening reception! There was a large painting of Van Gogh in the foyer, which was created by a group of sixth graders. Artwork of all sizes and mediums decorated billboards, walls and rooms. I even noticed some of my classmate’s artwork on display!

The most wonderful part of the show was when I saw my watercolor shape art! (In March, it was selected for display in the Educational Department of the Town Hall.)

Winners of the Literacy Night book raffle and FREE books for download this weekend

Written By: Books R Fun - Apr• 05•14

Greetings,

Books”R”Fun had a great demonstration on David’s books yesterday during the Literacy Night. This annual event started at 6:00pm and lasted about 3 hours. It promotes literacy to the elementary students at Floral Street School and local families. Many families stopped by David’s table, watched the book exhibition and asked questions on how David wrote his books.

David really wanted to be there to meet his visitors but he was sick and couldn’t participate. Fortunately, his younger sister helped a lot during the event. We distributed stickers, free book download flyers and bookmarks.
