A Children’s book tour can be so taxing, I am not sure how Teachers do it day in and day out. Children are amazing, but wow…I’m exhausted from the tour. It’s 4:18 pm on Presidents Day and I’m in bed. Not because i’m sick, and not because I’m…whatever. It’s because I am FINALLY HOME…at least for 4 days.
Looking at the run from December and the Big Giveaway to the Southern California Writer’s Conference Key Note last night….I am T-I-R-E -WHOOPED. See, you thought I was going to write, TIRED, didn’t you. I’m not tired, I’m whooped. 16 cities and 1000’s of kids. As far east to Nashville, south to New Orleans, and North to Seattle. On this leg of the Saltwater Taffy Children’s Book Tour, Largest Assembly was 400 middle school kids. One mic, one author and 400 kids in one auditorium? It was awesome. When you book your children’s book tour, make sure to pencil in some time for you to do simply NOTHING. It will help, trust me. Lesson learned.
