Forget Santa, Come Have Breakfast With Me!

Three Christmas Season Booksigning Events



Forget Santa. Come have breakfast* with me! No offense to the man in red, but seriously, when's the last time you saw old Saint Nick swinging a boss righteous broadsword? I rest my case.

The Christmas Season is upon us, and to celebrate with you, I'd like to announce THREE booksigning events. Just like the visitation of Scrooge's three spirits, I'll be coming to visit three times before Christmas!



Please come on out. I'd love to break bread with you, entertain you, and sign some books for you. Here are the events and the details:

Event 1, His Way Christian Bookstore, Ellicott City, Maryland: 

Saturday, December 1st

12:00-1:00pm: Lunch with Author Wayne Thomas Batson at Nora's Cafe. (Those attending the lunch must RSVP to hiswayevents@gmail.com to save your seat.)

1:00-1:15pm: Hero Costume Contest.  (Come dressed as your favorite hero from Wayne's books and compete with other fans for prizes!)

1:30-2:00pm: Author Reading from "The Battle for Cannibal Island" Imagination Station Book #8 and Book Signing. All Ages

2:00-3:00pm:
Author Reading from "The Tide of Unmaking" Berinfell Prophecies Book #3 and Book Signing. Ages 10 and Up



Event 2, Family Fun Reading Night at Folly Quarter Middle School: 

Wednesday, December 5th
 
Mark your calendars for: Wednesday, December 5th in the Folly Quarter Middle School Media Center from 7:00-8:30pm! Folly Quarter continues the tradition of providing the finest reading opportunities for its students. 

This year's guest author will be none other than our own Wayne Thomas Batson (That's Mr. Batson to you sixth grade folk), author of 11 novels and several bestsellers. There will be food, swashbuckling swordplay, dramatic readings, books for sale, and signing. Students who come may have an opportunity to have the "night off" of homework in some classes. 

The event happens right before the holidays, so come pick out a signed book for the readers on your list. A portion of ALL sales will go back to FQMS to spend on future student events and supplies. So come on out, get a new book, be entertained, and give Mr. Batson a good ole case of Writer's Cramp.



Event 3, His Way Christian Bookstore, Glen Burnie, Maryland: 

Saturday, December 15th

12:00-1:00pm: Lunch with Author Wayne Thomas Batson at Nora's Cafe. (Those attending the lunch must RSVP to hiswayevents@gmail.com to save your seat.)

1:00-1:15pm: Hero Costume Contest.  (Come dressed as your favorite hero from Wayne's books and compete with other fans for prizes!)

1:30-2:00pm: Author Reading from "The Battle for Cannibal Island" Imagination Station Book #8 and Book Signing. All Ages

2:00-3:00pm:
Author Reading from "The Tide of Unmaking" Berinfell Prophecies Book #3 and Book Signing. Ages 10 and Up

Hope to see you there!

Never alone!

*Yes, I know, technically none of these are breakfast, but two of them are LUNCH, so that counts, right?

Aw, I so wish that was happening closer to where I live!! Mr. Batson, can you lend me some instantaneous-travel machine so I can come? :P (Just kidding.)

This is one of the few reasons that I want to live in America, or one of the many reasons that I wish you lived in New Zealand.

Wow! I wish I could come and get some of my books signed. Unfortunately, there's a wee bit of a drive between Nebraska and Maryland. I just totally thought of one of the disadvantages of e-books. You can't really get them signed. I hope it goes well for you though.
Never Alone.

This is in reply to your question about Santa never wearing a sword. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aPLiBxhoug0
I'd come if I could though to the breakfast but I live in OK. But don't worry I don't choose Santa over a great author's meeting. I've never gotten my picture taken with him anyway. (hahaha, I was too scared when I was younger)

Agh, I want to go to these so bad . . . but there's no way my parents will drive me for an hour and a half to get there. :P Probably. I'll ask anyway, though.

Whether I can make it or not, hope it goes well!

An interesting development for me. A friend of mine has some elves in Maryland who could possibly get a book signed for me. Now if only I could here you read from the Tide of Unmaking...Endurance and Victory!

I want to go! The only problem is that I live in Washington State...Oh well, I'm at least getting The Tide of Unmaking for Christmas. :)
