No, seriously. The release party for my first book happened just over a week ago now, and it was crazy! Crazy busy, crazy fun, crazy full of awesome people. A week (and a bit) later, I'm still glowing. And recovering, because this busy mama was prepping until the hour before, and this introvert needs her downtime.
A few statistics from the event:
Cups of Monster Mix consumed: 46
Mummy Juice Boxes demolished: 30
Attendance: Best estimate of around 75!
Children: At least 25
Books sold and signed: ALL OF THEM!
Some highlights in the form of AMAZING photos from my photo-taking-maniac friend, Paul Hart (find more of Paul's photos here, and locals, if you need a photographer...):
We had snacks and mingled...
We did crafts...(Find the Halloween Good Night coloring pages here.)
We had Story Time!
Halloween Good Night Enthralled all...
I've never had such an attentive audience!
And we finished up with some book signing fun!
A huge thank you (again!) to everyone who attended. You are all the BEST! And for those who missed it, check out my upcoming events. It's not too late! I'm confident everyone who came left with good memories, a few extra calories, and a little something special.
I also owe a special word of thanks to Michele Ross! She kept the whole event on track, helped me make sense of the mountain of details involved in event planning, and is just all around wonderful. And a huge thank you, too, to Mark and Emily, owners of Hopscotch Children's Store!
