What a lovely group of people! I am so grateful for the friends, family, and even a few fans (I didn't know I had those) who came to support me at The King's English Bookshop in SLC. They were gracious enough to wear the fascinators and pearl earrings that I made. Fancy Nancy would have approved.
I was in conversation with Mackenzi Lee and we had a great time talking about Victorian underwear and my book, The Last Word.
The best part of my writer's journey has been the friends that I've made.
The Novel 19s group
(Authors debuting this year: Addie Thorley, me, Erin Stewart, Tiana Smith, Crystal Pasternack, RuthAnne Snow, and Crystal Smith)
There's so many amazing authors in Utah and they are the kindest people you'll ever meet. And sometimes silly, Summer and I are lifting a leg. I'm not sure why.
(More amazing local authors: Emily R. King, Tricia Levenseller, me, Kathryn Purdie, and Summer Spence)
It was a wonderful night and I am so very grateful.
"So what do you do at a book launch?" my mom asked me.
In case you've never been to a book launch either, I'll tell you. A book launch is really a party for the book. Who doesn't love a party, right? All parties are a little different, but some things you can expect at a book launch: The author to talk about and/or read from their bookQ & A with the audienceBook signings at the end And more...Stick out your pinkies, friends, we're going full out Tea Party style at my book launch for, The Last Word.
First things, first. What's a tea party without a fascinator? I made a ton of these cute little hair accessories so you can feel just like Kate Middleton (Prince William not included). Come early and pick your favorite to put in your hair!
I also made pearl earrings for all of you too. I only wish that I could feed you delicious tea party treats, but the bookstore didn't think that was a very good idea by all of their new books. Go figure!
I am going to…
