Two signings next month

Earlier this year I did a post announcing two more book signings for February.

One in San Francisco that I made it to and one in Minneapolis that I didn’t.

I got sick and had to cancel at the last minute. I wasn’t doing well as you know.

My transplanted kidney was failing and I had to unexpectedly start dialysis in March.

By June I was off dialysis because I received another kidney transplant thanks to the wonderful gift of life from my mom.

Now, it’s September. Several months later and I am doing great. Mom, too. Feeling worlds better and I’m so grateful.

Your kindness during those tough months still means so much to me. Thank you.

It’s been a crazy year, but next month on October 8th, I’ll be in Minnesota for the book signing I missed in February. Yay!

If you had planned on coming last time, I hope you can make it again. I would love to meet you guys, share cake pop stories and give you a big hug.

Coincidentally, I’m also going to be in San Francisco again later in October. My mom and I will be attending a charity event with my publisher benefitting the National Kidney Foundation that serves Northern California. Chronicle was kind enough to make a donation. I love those guys.

While I’m there, I’ll be doing a book signing at the Chronicle Headquarters store. Hope you can come by and say hi. There will be more hugs.

Here are the details for both.

I just wanted to let you know.

I also want to let you know that I made some really cute cake pops this weekend. I just need to finish the photos and pull the post together.

Want to take a guess what I made?
The first person to guess correctly will win a signed Cake Pops book.
One guess per comment please.

Here’s a hint: It’s a cartoon character.

If no one guesses correctly, I’ll do a random draw.

Good Luck!

So glad you are doing better and back to the book siginings. Wish I could be there, but I will meet you one day~ I think it may be a smurf, but I don’t really need to win since I had your book from the very beginning and have since purchased it as gifts. Thanks again for the joy you bring into my life! Your happy positive attitude is something I enjoy when I read your blog each week.
