So this past weekend was a blast. I attended my first book release party - this one for K.M. Walton's YA debut, Cracked. The launch was held at a local, independent bookstore which, to my surprise, was rather large and very nice. Unfortunately, it's a 50-minute drive with no traffic (uncommon for that area). [personal profile] shveta_writes  and I were surprised at how many people were there when we arrived (and we got there early!).  We were 55 and 56 in line to get our book signed. I estimate there were about 200 people there, maybe more. Wine, fruit, cheese, cupcakes were all being served (check out Frankie Diane Mallis' blog for pictures of these awesome cupcakes and cake based on the book cover  http://frankiediane.blogspot.com/2012/01/cracked-launch-party.html). Unfortunately, i didnt win a door prize but we still had a blast chatting and cheering on Kate.

As an added bonus, I got to see [personal profile] starlady  whom I hadnt seen in ages!!

Afterwards, Kate invited us to the after party at the Social Lounge in West Chester for a bit to chat with some friends and we were able to congratulate Kate again on a successful launch.

Back at the daily grind today after almost 2 weeks off. I was pretty anxious last night and did not sleep well at all but things are going smoothly and I'm putting out the fires pretty quickly, as well as writing up a training plan for a session I have to conduct next week.

I did some more writing last night on the latest draft. Not as much as I would have liked but every little bit counts as I wind this up - finally!!

You must stay drunk on writing so reality cannot destroy you.

I have a few IRL and online friends releasing books, so I'm trying to keep up with them all. Here's one announcement to start. I'm pretty excited since I get to go to two book launch parties in the next few weeks and hopefully another one in the spring :) I'm so happy for all my writing friends accomplishing stuff!!
