On Tuesday we launched The Heavy Purse at Pages in Manhattan Beach, CA. It was such a blast! Kids and adults responded with great enthusiasm to the book. The kids liked the story and characters and parents liked the message. Win-win!
Here are a few highlights from the event.
Shannon with her daughters, Lauren and Taylor who were the inspiration for this story.
A few of The Heavy Purse characters and some of the books. They flew off the shelves like hotcakes at the launch Tuesday night.
Lauren and Taylor and their friend reading The Heavy Purse.
Lauren and Taylor with The Heavy Purse cookies and pretty pink cupcakes at the launch party. The cookies were adorable with the logo imprinted on them and tasted soooooooooo good!
The Heavy Purse is now available in hardcover at Amazon and is also available in e-book format for the Kindle Fire and Nook Color/Tablet. The e-book for the iPad will be available in May. I know I’m biased, but this is truly a beautifully illustrated book with a beautiful message. Thanks to everyone who bought the book and spread the word about it.
