My Launch in Review

Apr 04, 2016 Books, PB&J Society 3 comments

My head is still buzzing over all the excitement of the last few days. On Friday, my book headed out to the world! My twitter feed went wild, and I conducted a couple of polls on two very important topics:

Team Grape vs. Team Strawberry (Team Grape: 25% vs. Team Strawberry: 75%)

&

Chunky Peanut Butter vs. Creamy Peanut Butter (Chunky: 27% vs. Creamy: 73%)

I’m still in shock over the tragic defeat of Team Grape!

On Saturday I had a wonderful launch party at The King’s English Bookshop, so today I wanted to share the excitement of the party with a few pictures:

I couldn’t have open food, so we had PEANUT BUTTER  cups and JELLY beans.

My parents and sister surprised me with a beautiful framed picture of my cover. It was just perfect to display at the signing.

I brought my very first ever rejection from 21 years ago. (Isn’t that amazing?!) As a teen I sent a story idea to Disney, and that envelope contains their polite refusal to even look at it.

I told some stories. I read a few passages from my book . . .

We drew winners for some Pirate Prize Packs and a PB&J Prize Pack.

And I couldn’t resist throwing in a booby prize (or should I say Gooby prize?)!

And the whole thing concluded with the signing of lots and lots of books.

Thank you so much to everyone who came both in body and spirit! You’ve made me feel so special, and I’m grateful to have shared this amazing moment in my life with so many people I care about.

I wish you all a wonderful week, and much happiness!
