Kyle and I were honored to participate in Indies First on Small Business Saturday. I appeared at Powell's City of Books in Portland, OR, and Kyle was at two bookstores, Queen Anne Book Company and the University Bookstore, both in Seattle, WA. Here are some pics!
Chris works the info desk at Powell's Books. (With a little help from Smash.)
Kyle gears up outside the Queen Anne Book Company.
Powell's created its own lanyards for the event.
Kyle heads into Queen Anne...
Chris asks a Powell's employee for some tips.
Kyle browses the front display. (Note Smash: Trial by Fire right in front — hooray!!)
A real-life superhero: Powell's kids books expert Gloria Moe poses in Smash goggles!
Kyle is only too happy to autograph a copy for a customer.

Kyle moves on to the University Book Store.
Kyle chats with fellow Indies First authors and customers alike.
We both had a great time and are looking forward to next year!
