Upcoming Events

6 Sep

It is hard to believe that it hasn’t even been a year since my husband and I published our first book Mommy, Tell Me a Story about a Car that came out in January. Our second book Mommy, Tell Me a Story about a Plane only came out in May. If all goes according to plan, our third book Mommy, Tell Me a Story about What Daddy Does should be out this month. Wow! This has been a busy year! Dave and I have agreed that we are going to take a break from publishing for a bit so that we can promote these three, and enjoy the holidays before we start up again. We can’t wait to get started on the fourth book Mommy, Tell Me a Story about a Fish in 2013. The story is written already; it just needs a little editing before it is ready to go. Dave still has to develop the characters on paper before the illustrations can come to life as well. It is always fun watching this happen.

Kristi and Dillon GrimmWe have been so thankful for the wonderful response to our books. Dave and I have been able to go into several schools to read our books, we have had three book signings, we have had an article written in a local paper, and we were allowed a short segment on a local TV show, all since our adventure began in January 2012. Starting this month, things are going to get a little busier for us.

September 14th- I will be interviewed on “Networking Arizona” KFNX 1100 AM radio show from 3:30-4:00.  For those of you not in the Arizona area, you can also listen at www.1100kfnx.com. This is my first radio interview, so wish me luck. I will be doing some a book give-away during the broadcast, so if you would like to win a free book, be sure to try and call into the station at the right time.

September 19th- We have been invited to participate in a literacy event at Mountain View Elementary School in Phoenix. We are really looking forward to spending the day with lots of little ones who love to hear stories. Dave also has fun drawing characters for them on the board. They always enjoy seeing the artwork from the books unfold right in front of them.

October 5th- We will be visiting my almamater, Biola University, to promote our books at their Alumni Weekend. It is always fun to mix business and pleasure. I get to show off our books and see old friends and professors all at the same time. Sounds good to me!

October 20th- We are thrilled to have our first book signing at a Barnes & Noble. If you have friends or family in the Dallas area, be sure to let them know that we will be at the Southlake location for “Story Time” and a book signing afterwards.

As we look at what we have done and what is in the future, we are so excited to see what is in store for us next. Hopefully we can keep up!
