Spellbound in Asheville

Last Wednesday I visited Asheville, NC, the setting of The Last Dragon Charmer series and home to fantastic local bookstores. I partnered with the magical Spellbound Children’s Bookshop for an author visit at Hall Fletcher Elementary, and I have to thank Spellbound and the school and students for a warm welcome.

I have to mention, Hall Fletcher has a great media center and beautiful murals on the school. The shine like sun rays.

Spellbound’s new location is at 640 Merrimon Ave. There is a large new book area and a great classroom and used book room as well. (And the shop is just above The Hop ice cream shop. Did I mention at the store event there was a delicious ice cream cake? Well, they’re was.

Of course, I also had to buy a few books while I was there. I got an autographed copy of Sound by Alexandra Duncan and two great books for my niece and nephew.

Spellbound’s new shop is great! I had a wonderful time, met some wonderful people, and got some great books. Check out the new shop if you’re in Asheville. Not only are there great books but they also have cool events for kids and teens. And, I lest I forget, there are also autographed copies of VILLAIN KEEPER and QUEST MAKER available.
