The Last Word Tea Party / Book Launch

"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 book
  • Q & A with the audience
  • Book 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 read a little excerpt from my book and be in conversation with an amazing author...but I'm not going to name drop. That's terrible manners. But she is really awesome.

Next we are going to play a literary game! To win one of these adorable quills (I have 16; an odd number but that's the amount they came with) you must guess what the last lines of famous Young Adult and 19th Century novels. 
Then I'm going to raffle my favorite things, but I promise that I won't sing. I have seven trays full of books, tea pots, tea cups, quills, handkerchiefs, tea tins, and more. 
 A close up, because they're just so cute!
 And lastly, I will sign books and giveaway more swag. I've got bookmarks made by the many-talented Crystal Smith (check out her books), book pins, and stickers. 

I hope my party sounds like your cup of tea and I'll see you on July 9th @ 7pm at The King's English Bookshop.

The Invention of Sophie Carter

THE INVENTION OF SOPHIE CARTER  
iscoming out July 14, 2020 from Swoon Reads / Macmillan
1851. Bounced from one begrudging relative to another their whole lives, orphaned identical twins Sophie and Mariah Carter have always relied on each other for love and support, even though the sisters couldn't be more different.
Brash Sophie wants to be an inventor, and demure Mariah wants to be an artist. Both long to visit London for the summer—Sophie to see the Queen’s Great Exhibition and Mariah to study the world’s finest collection of paintings. But when their cantankerous aunt answers their letter pleading for a place to stay, she insists she only has time and room to spare for one of them.
So, Mariah and Sophie hatch a clever scheme: They will travel to London together and take turns playing the part of "Sophie".
At first the plan runs like clockwork. But as the girls avoid getting caught by increasingly narrow margins and two handsome gentlemen—both of whom think they’re fal…
