Release Party Re-cap







I wanted to thank everyone who came to the Indelible release party. I had a great time. I really enjoy planning parties and this one was no different. I thought the room came together beautifully. I am biased but I loved seeing my book posters hanging side by side. I thought they were so pretty!







We had a dessert table (half of the goodies weren't there when we took this picture) filled with treats and some fancy water (had lemon, orange and lime slices in it).









We also had our version of Yara's necklace on display. Now for reasons I don't understand, blogger won't let me put the text where I want so I'm going to have to talk about the pictures way before you see them. Sorry!
My publisher set up the table where she would sell the special edition of Indelible and the hardcovers of Intrinsical.
Every special edition came with a swag bag! Inside were two bookmarks, an Indelible rubber bracelet and tattoo. Also a mini bag of skittles and an Indelible postcard. As an added bonus it also came with a CD of Yara's favorite song 'Can't Stop Dreamin' of You'.
Some fans made their own Intrinsical inspired T-shirts. I loved them!
Also we had a lot of fun after the reading. We had a drawing for door prizes. Also, I bribed people to ask questions during the Q&A by throwing out candy. It was dangerous to have me throwing things but I did pretty good. :) I also took a picture with Brent (from the trailer, website and Indelible title page). Enjoy the pictures!












Here is the Can't Stop Dreamin' of You from the party. The library requested we play this song again. My husband wrote the lyrics his friend Gary (the man playing the guitar) wrote the music. Clint, the singer (also Steve from the website) helped with the music too.

My goodness, darling! I always did say that you knew how to throw a party! You probably could have made a killing as an event planner in another life. ;)

I so wish I could have been there! And those shirts are awesome! Hopefully I'll be able to make it out for your next party. I'm well overdue for a follow-up visit. <3
