Today Kingdom Keepers V-Shell Game is being released in book stores. I had the opportunity to purchase the book in advance and have it autographed by Ridley Pearson. An early release of the book and book signing events were scheduled at Walt Disney World on 3/29/12 and 3/30/12. On 3/29, the event was held at Once Upon A Toy at Downtown Disney and 3/30 at The Writer’s Stop at Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Of course I wanted to attend the event after attending the 1/26/12 signing event held at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.
On 3/29, the book was available for purchase at 3pm. When I arrived a little after 2pm, the line was already around the corner. We were asked to line up at one of the back doors. The book was limited in quantity, but I think everyone in line was able to purchase a copy or two. The line to purchase moved quickly and was done in an orderly fashion. Once the book was purchased, you got into another line to receive Mr. Pearson’s autograph.
I enjoy the series so much, that I would like to give away an autographed copy of Kingdom Keepers V-Shell Game. The contest begins Tuesday, 4/3/12 at 12:01am EST and ends on Thursday, 4/5/12 at 12:01am EST. The winner will be chosen using Rafflecopter and announced on Friday, 4/6/12. The link and rules to enter are below.
I had the opportunity to attend a book signing by Ridley Pearson, author of the Kingdom Keeper series. The event took place at Disney’s Hollywood Studios on January 26th at the Writer’s Shop. The event was very organized and the line moved quickly. Mr. Pearson was very nice and ever commented that I had a unique first name. I decided to have the first book, Kingdom Keepers-Disney After Dark signed.
I enjoy the series and recommend it to Disney fans that are always on the search for a Disney-fix when away from the parks. The series consists of four books and the fifth one is rumored to be released early at an event in March of this year. The titles are as follows:
Kingdom Keepers II – Disney at Dawn
Kingdom Keepers III – Disney in Shadow
Kingdom Keepers IV – Power Play
Kingdom Keepers V – Shell Game (Spring 2012 release)
I hope to be able to attend the March book signing event to meet Mr. Pearson again and purchase the fifth book.
