A few months ago somebody wrote a comment asking if I wanted to come to Sanpete county and speak to a few elementary schools. I haven’t done school visits in a while, and they are always so fun. so I said yes. I’m glad I did.
I love small towns. I grew up in one, and currently live in a big city. It was refreshing to drive until all you can see is lots and lots of earth. No buildings, no cement, no asphalt; just earth.
Actually, I saw more snow than earth, but I used my imagination.
Anyway, the school visits went great. Nobody booed, and I didn’t get rocks thrown at me like last time, so I’m counting it a success. I met many people who had read my books, and many more who seemed genuinely excited about discovering them for the first time.
Best of all I got to meet Kate Palmer, and found out that she is a fellow writer. We listen to the same podcasts, know the same people, and it was fun to talk with her as we drove from school to school.
I was filmed for the local television channel, so if one of your hobbies is seeing a grown man stare awkwardly at the camera, boy have I made your wildest dreams come true. Luckily you have to live in Sanpete County to see me, so most of you (thankfully) are out of luck.
Best of all was I premiered my new book trailer–the one for Almost Super–and the kids seemed to like it. I’m hoping to have it posted here by the end of the weekend, so stay tuned.
