SECOND VERSE Book Launch Recap!

The SECOND VERSE Book Launch was last night at WORDS Bookstore in Maplewood. What an amazingly fun night! I am so incredibly grateful for the support for this event. We had about 60 people there. (Holy wow!) Here are a few pics of the event. I'll add more as I get them. I know I took pics with a lot of people, hopefully copies of those will trickle in. Much of the night was a whirlwind, but it was so much fun! The bookstore ran out of books - yay! Oh, and signing books is pretty much the most fun thing ever, I think.:)

What's a party without cupcakes?

Yummy! Never mind that the icing turned people's teeth purple! 

My mommy and I! Yes, she is wearing a super cool Second Verse tee shirt. Isn't it awesome? I wish I got a picture of the back, which is even cooler. Also, I must admit, I am not that tall. I was wearing gigantic heels. I am giggling over the fact that I actually look tall in these pictures.

My dear writing friend Shveta, along with my super nice editor, Tracy, had an absolutely fantastic purse made out of my book! It doesn't just LOOK like my book, it is actually made out of my book. The internet is full of such fun and creative gifts.

Me and Jonah, the owner of WORDS Bookstore. He's holding my book and I'm holding my book purse! Seriously, anyone local, check out this bookstore, they are the best bookstore around!

Me reading from my book. What a fun and surreal moment.

How cute is this bookstore?

Signing! So much fun.

Thanks all for stopping by my blog!

Also, the SECOND VERSE Kindle edition is now live, for those that have been asking!:)
