Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day

This is the brilliant brainchild of Jenny Milchman. Jenny has long been an advocate for writers, posting their Made It Moments on her blog, Suspense Your Disbelief, regularly. All her supporters cheered when her book found a publisher this year! Look for it next year.

Now she's advocating for bookstores with Take Your Child to a Bookstore Day, which started last year and continues expanding in December of this year.

(An offshoot has been Take Your Child to a Library Day.)

Here at All Things Writing, we're doing our part. We're signing at Hill Country Bookstore on TYCTAB Day! Mark December 3rd on your calendar, from 2-4:00.

This should be a fun time since the  historic Georgetown, TX, square will be decorated for the holidays. In addition, that's the day of the Georgetown ChristmasStroll.

If you're anywhere near the Austin area, stop and see us signing "All Things Dark and Dastardly". I know, not a Holiday theme (well, it's thematic for Halloween), but a great gift item for those on your list who like dark short stories.


  1. I don't think we'll need costumes for this one.

  2. I wish I could be there with you, Kaye, on December 3rd--I wish I could be in about 40 states and 4 countries on that Day :)--but I know you will have a great turnout. Those kids will be lucky to meet you! Thanks so much for profiling Take Your Child to a Bookstore!

  3. I wish you could be there, too, Jenny! Thanks.

  4. I think dressing up in costume should be our new thing. Anytime we go to a book signing or event we should dress up like different genres.
