The parts I enjoyed most were all the questions during and after the presentation and then meeting the students afterwords when they all came up to me to sign the book mark I passed out.
There is always a handful of students that come up to me that say they needed to hear it or it was "inspirational." That is why I keep doing these presentations.
I was also extremely touched when their school councilor came up to me with tears. She had read my book and said she wants to recommend it to all her students. Again, moments like that is what gives me the incentive to want to keep reaching more schools.
Karen Hoover also came and presented about how she gets her ideas for the fiction she writes. I enjoyed listening to her and the kids were LOVING the creative approach to her presentation. I couldn't believe how involved and excited she got the kids. (See! I knew you would do great Karen!)
Karen and I went out to lunch after and had a fun chat. Gotta luv that lady!
Here are a few pics that Karen took for me, I'm just sad I didn't grab one of us together!
