Promoting a book on a 'galloping horse'

Perhaps my most unusual book promotion happened for The Galloping Horses of Willowbrook.  My sister (and co-author) and I rode an 1894 Armitage Herschell carousel, the second oldest of its kind in existence.  The carousel twirls at a very fast pace, about 6 mph, and instead of the horses moving up and down, they rock back and forth as if galloping.  And at our signing, before the riders twirled, the operator held up our little book, a creative non-fiction of Ivory Fenderson and his beautifully restored carousel.
