Twinkle Light Parade

 

This was the float Alamosa Books created for Albuquerque's Twinkle Light Parade. See the Christmas tree in the left hand corner? Now check out the close up below...
Sean and Elizabeth, the owners of Alamosa, decorated the tree with books. Forget Me Not is one of the featured titles, along with May B. by Caroline Starr  Rose and Circle of Secrets by Kimberley Griffiths Little.

The three of us, along with several other local authors, will be at Alamosa Books in Albuquerque, on December 11 from 6-8 p.m. In addition to mingling with librarians and conducting a multi-author book signing, we will be collecting books for the Albuquerque Public Schools - Title One Homeless Project. This project has already served over 400 students this year alone. A book is a gift a child may treasure forever. If you are not located in the Albuquerque area, consider donating books to your local homeless shelter, or better yet, partner with a local bookstore and start a book drive of your own.

As part of the evening's entertainment, we will be singing Christmas Carol Spoofs. I must give kudos here to the staff at Alamosa (Chris Warner, Megan Herceg, and Corey Bowen) for helping me brainstorm these wacky songs. They were the ones who suggested zombies and brought out a host of Jonathan Maberry books (see last weeks post for the Zombie song as well as for tips for creating your own holiday spoofs).

To see my second song spoof - "Hunger Games Holiday Traditions," visit the Spellbinders Blog.
