"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.
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!
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.
