John Nez Book Signing

John Nez is happy to announce a signing of his new book, which will hopefully be discovered beneath many an evergreen tree this holiday season. The book signing will be at Third Place Books, Lake Forest Park - November 26 at 1 p.m. Signings at Costco and other stores are in the works.

THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS IN WASHINGTON is a picture book about two cousins who travel across the state of Washington during the holiday season enjoying the wonders of Washington. It's based loosely on the popular carol "The 12 Days of Christmas".

The two cousins visit:
12 boats a-blinking, in the Lake Washington Christmas Ships Parade
11 skiers whooshing, in Waterfront Park in Spokane
10 apples gleaming, near Wenatchee
9 cowboys crooning, near Omak & Ellensburg
8 wild wonders, at the Tacoma Zoo
7 jets a-zooming, over downtown Seattle
6 giant footprints, near Mt. Rainier
5 golden trout, at Pike Place Market
4 alpenhorns, in Leavenworth
3 huge whales, in the San Juan Islands
2 ferryboats, crossing Puget Sound
and a goldfinch in a hemlock tree.

Washington state residents will recognize the many local landmarks right off. John says that he greatly enjoyed writing and illustrating this colorful book. It's full of fun scenes in Pike Place Market, Mt. Rainier, Downtown Seattle, Puget Sound, Tacoma, Winthrop
, Leavenworth and Spokane. (all his favorite places).

More details about school visits and inside pages can be found at THE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS IN WASHINGTON webpage. For more information on John, and his work, you can visit his website.

Just an update that the Lake Forest Park book signing has been postponed (in the unlikely event anyone was going tomorrow Nov. 26th).

I called and no one knew anything about it. But I'm used to rejection, hopefully someone at Costco will notice I'm there. And if not, well I do hope they have Belgium Waffles in stock.

It's easy to see why I'd rather be working on my next book project than trying to do bookstore promotion events.
