A Fun and Successful Book Launch Party
Many thanks to all my local friends who came to support me during my book launch party yesterday afternoon at the Barnes & Noble bookstore across from Chapel Hills Mall. I had a steady stream of customers, but I was able to chat for awhile with each one, which is just about perfect. Now, I hope you're all enjoying reading about Claire's wild ride in To Hell in a Handbasket!
From the attached photos, you'll see I had a blue theme to match the book cover, with blue paper goods, blue frosted cookies, and white & blue balloons for the kids. I even displayed Margaret Grace's miniature scene that she made for me and received a lot of compliments on it. The "nest" of books around me was considerable whittled down by the end of the event. I had hoped for a sell-out and didn't quite make it, but I came close!
For those of you who didn't have a chance to come and would like to get a book before my June 27th signing at Black Cat Books, I left some autographed copies at the Barnes & Noble store, so you can pick one up at your convenience. Thanks again, everyone, and I hope the books you bought provide you with hours of reading pleasure.
