The first actual Mama Kangaroo promotional event was a success! I had my own author’s booth at our town’s new festival. The first signs were made and my dad and I created a life-sized Mama Kangaroo out of wood! The event was a fantastic first step in the world of signing/promoting! My little “kangaroos” handed out logo stickers to the local kids, and it was so much fun talking about the books with everyone. The interest was flattering at times. People who were hearing of “Mama” for the first time purchased books. The kids all loved the stickers. I was asked if we sell Mama Kangaroo t-shirts! (Not yet, but in due time!) Our local Police even sported their Mama Kangaroo stickers and smiled for a photo! It was an eye-opening experience of things yet to come!
One of the most exciting parts of the day… the manager of a nearby Hallmark asked me to do book signings at Hallmark stores! Hallmark! How awesome is that!? I’ve always loved Hallmark stores so this is not only a milestone but a dream come true. We’re planning for August or so, exact dates yet to be determined!
There are some more promotional events in the works. All local so far, but hopefully in the future we’ll be traveling around to include even more kids and families on the Mama Kangaroo journey!
More updates coming soon! Thank you again everyone for your support! 😊
