So I decided to stay offline for the most part. I appreciate the book birthday wishes and all the comments and everything. I did read them all.
Today, I present you with picture proof of what actually happens on your typical launch day.
|Up first: tennis. Bright and early at 7 AM. This is me afterward, in my unshowered condition.|
|Next: breakfast. My husband with his hot chocolate. He was all like, "Take my picture with my face covered with cream." #keeper|
|Wha? It's BACON.|
|After eating: the bookstore. In the window, at the local Barnes & Noble.|
|On the shelf at the local Barnes & Noble. It took a few minutes to find them, and I was seriously getting nervous. But there they are!! I didn't cry, for the record.|
|Off the shelf at the local Barnes & Noble. I thought, "They have SIX copies! Yay!"|
|We shopped a bit, and were going up to buy the books, and I stopped short and said, "OH MY HECK, THAT'S MY BOOK." There was a whole display at the front of the store!! We'd walked right by it coming in. (We were focused on the Nook, in our defense.)|
|The whole family. My husband sold a copy to the girls taking our picture. I signed it. :)|
|After that, I went to the spa to get a hot stone pedicure. I got blue polish and butterfly decals!|
|Then: Dinner with writer friends!! Christine Fonseca, me, Jamie Harrington. One word: epic.|
|And my favorite: A card from my six-year-old daughter. I get a little teary when I see it, and I'm currently using it as a bookmark. <3|
Tonight, I'm participating in the launch party of amazingness. There will be prize packages and talking and music and cookies. If you're in the area, please come! It's at The King's English (1511 S. 1500 E. in Salt Lake City). If you're not in the area, mark your calendars for the virtual launch party, which will take place on my fansite (www.insidetheresistance.com) on Thursday, June 16. All day, so be prepared!
Thank you again for all the well-wishes and whatnot. I swear I won't be blogging about my book forever.
Also, planning a release day takes time. What will you do on yours? Because you will have one. Oh, yes, you will.
