The Holidays Are Here!

American Thanksgiving is almost here! The holidays are upon us, which means people are in gift-buying mode. Here are a couple of things I have going on these days, for people who want to add some Raina-centric cheer to the mix: B3VNQAbIgAAcEie

***Barnes & Noble has a Black Friday promotion I'm a part of: They created a special, limited edition of Smile with a new page -- and every copy is signed!! That's right, I signed several thousand copies of Smile (it took about two weeks!), and they will be in-store at B&Ns while supplies last, THIS WEEKEND ONLY. That's Nov. 28-30! Once they're gone, they're gone! For more information and to find a store near you, click here.

***If you can't make it to a Barnes & Noble but you still want a signed/personalized copy of any of my books, you can order one from my local indie bookstore, Astoria Bookshop, and they will ship it to you! Please submit orders by December 17 (Dec. 10 for int'l orders) to assure they arrive in time for Christmas.

***SMILE T-shirts are BACK! We're taking orders for the holiday season over on THE COMICS BAKERY website. Please place your holiday orders by December 17 at the very latest to receive them in time for Christmas!

***If you're looking for original artwork, I sell pages from the Baby-sitters Club graphic novels right here on my site! Please order by December 10, as the packages are a specialized size and therefore sometimes take a little longer for the post office to process and send.

***ALA SMILE posters are available from ALA's website!

And, whew...I think that's it. Here's to a happy, safe and healthy holiday to all of you.
