Expecting Sunshine in New York City! Book tour update!

New York City was an amazing stop on the Expecting Sunshine book tour! Apart from two evenings off, every day and night were full of award ceremonies, visits to bereavement groups and other cool venues for events. I participated in Book Expo America and BookCon. I spoke at The Baby Resource Center and the Pregnancy Loss Support Program at the National Council for Jewish Women. Expecting Sunshine got decorated with awards from the Next Generation Indie Book Awards and the IndieReader Discovery Awards.

The New York City leg of the book tour was a busy time to say the least!

Here are some pictures from the trip:
