Book Launch Party Fun

Last Tuesday was my first ever book launch party and it was better than I expected! I’ve heard horror stories of only a handful of people showing up, so my biggest fear was that I’d be stuck twiddling my thumbs for two hours with my mom and husband. But we had a steady flow of people and — best of all — I sold out of FADED! It was so wonderful to see the friends and family who’ve supported me all in one place. Thank you to everyone who made it out, and a BIG thank you to The Bookman for hosting!

A party isn't a party without food. Aside from Jeremy's amazing chocolate chip cookies, there were Twizzlers and orange soda -- both of which are in the books.
