{RECAP} 2013 BOOK TOUR

This post is way way overdue.

I owe you guys pictures from my mARTshmallows book tour.  Although I have already written about the major events and shows I attended as part of my tour, here are the details to the other stops that I missed.

I’m bringing you to San Diego, New York, Miami, Hollywood and Dallas.

Let me start off by saying that I am extremely appreciative of each and every single person who helped me organize my tour, came to see me, helped me spread the word, and supported me with encouragement on my pics and status updates I posted along. You guys all rock!! I am so very thankful to have you in my life. Book tours aren’t all glitz and glamour and can be very scary to take on as a self-publisher. Luckily, our was a total success!

I’d also like to thank my husband, my parents, my mother-in-law, Rocky and Melissa for helping me with the boys. I could not have done it without you!!!!

In 5 months we made 10 out of 12 scheduled appearances — WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!!

Do It With Icing in San Diego, California

I came back to where my marshmallow adventures first began. This store is where I came to purchase all my supplies to start making marshmallow art for the very first time.

Linda (the owner of DIWI) was the first person who believed in me and gave me a chance to teach at her store back in 2010. She recently expanded the store and it’s HUGE now.

Nothing like having Jenn from Hostess With The Mostess at my book signing.  Jenn truly is a gem. She is so down to earth and beyond talented. She’s like my sweets angel because thanks to her giving me a chance to make something for her Wonderlandia party  that The Marshmallow Studio really took off.

mARTshmallows book by Alejandra Morin from The Marshmallow Studio

I could have never imaged the joy and blessing this book has brought to our lives. Every step of the way has been an adventure and I know we haven’t even reached the tip of what else it has for us to experience.

If you have a dream, work hard and make it happen!!

Thank you.
