Gimme a B! Gimme an E! Gimme an A! What’s That Spell?


Not Bea.

Book Expo America.


I’m headed there later this week in support of the picture book I wrote and Mark Pett illustrated called The Very Last Castle (pre-order here).

Are you going? It’s easy: just book a flight to New York and then follow the crowd of people who look like they might use the word “obsequious” in casual conversation.


And this is something new: I’ll be signing early copies of The Very Last Castle on Friday, June 1 @ 4:00pm in Autographing Area table #12. Stop by and say hello!

    ^ very intriguing comment, that one. I cannot figure out what’s going on here. :)

    Have fun at BEA, Travis. Wish I could be there!
