4th of July Sale & Photos from the LA Times Festival of Books
Posted on 29.11.2014 |
Hi lil' ninja,
It was so great to meet all of you back in April at the LA Times Festival of Books!! Not many of you know, but Ninja Levels Book 1 is actually independently aka self-published and you were there for its debut! We're so sorry we didn't have the camera out the first day.. but we did catch on our phone this very focused lil' ninja completing ninja level 2.
Day 1 was insanity for Team Ninja Levels; we were understaffed and not prepared for such an overwhelmingly positive response. But we're so grateful! :) We didn't have a moment to think as there was a line the whole day.. We didn't know what to do but to say a quick hello and get people in and out as fast as we humanly could. We met hundreds of people that day alone and are just recovering from the whirlwind of the weekend. :P
We flipped it up for Day 2.. We had a lot of friends come and help us (THANK YOU GUYS!!!!) and we slowed things down a bit. The wait to come into the booth ended up being longer than Day 1 (15-20 minute line the entire day), but we were able to spend a bit of time with each person/family/group and explain to people what the book was all about. Everyone completed NL2 (ninja level 2)...
...before spinning the infamous prize wheel.
We had ninjas of all ages!
Some ninjas we've known since they were babies..
..others we're meeting for the first time.
We had such a blast meeting and hanging with incredible kids and people all weekend. Thank you for being awesome!! We were told by patrons and festival staff that we were "the booth to be at" and the "most popular booth at the festival!" That's so amazing!! Thank you all so much for taking the time to check out Ninja Levels Book 1 and to meet the talented and fun-loving author/artist Kenya Nishihira.
