And then we had my official book launch party two weeks later.
And I had a lovely time. Really. It was awesome. And then, I had a signing in Seattle. Except it wasn't a signing. It was a READING. Like out loud. In front of people. With a microphone.
I didn't pass out, but it was a close thing. And I know now what to say when people ask me what's the best and worst thing about writing.
Best= red velvet cupcakes with black roses and balloons and flowers and unexpected out of town guests who flew in just for your party (I'm looking at you Jeannie Lin).
Worst= reading out loud with a microphone.
Thankfully, I had two writing veterans in attendance that night, Courtney Milan and Richelle Mead, giving me advice and telling me I'd be fine. But still. Eep.
So, as my Princess status winds down, I just wanted to thank all my friends, family, and readers for making this such a special release for me. All of you make me happy.
Oh! And I'm supposed to pick a winner from yesterday's blog:
