A Visit to Second Baptist School, Houston Texas Part 1

I'm not even sure how she got my contact information. But about a year ago, I got an email from Brenda McManus, Head of Media Services at Second Baptist School of Houston, Texas. She wondered if I might be interested in coming down to Houston for a school visit. My initial thought was, "Sure…I'd love to come to Texas, but it's a bit of a hike from Maryland." Brenda didn't flinch. She made it possible for me to fly down to Houston and even set me up in the most unique hotel I've ever been in, the Hotel Indigo. Everyone I met at Second Baptist thanked me for coming, but…really, I was the one who was treated to a special event.
Here are some pics from the event.

"Aha! I knew it was time well spent polishing this thing! I can see my fans behind me trying to sneak peaks at the new chapters!"

Or how about

"Is this a dagger that I see before me? The handle toward my hand? Come, let me clutch thee. . ."*

Awe, Wayne, those pics are great! I'm not good with coming up with captions and stuff, so I'll leave that alone.

"Waaaayynne, I thought we agreed on black shirts; a black cape and white shirt just throws off the whole effect."

To be, or NOT TO BE!!! To plunge this sword into my chest and horrify these kids, or to live and write another book. That is the question. Hmmm...I shall write another book.

(P.S.) This is all my friend that is sitting next to me's idea!;)
