Top 5 reasons to attend a book launch party!

On July 11, 2011 by Aimee

1. Your paperback becomes an immediate collector’s item, worth at least $.01 more on eBay than when you bought it.

2. The word ‘whine’ drops an ‘h’ and isn’t a typo!

3. The book will be read TO you (okay … just a portion of it, but still!)

4. You’ll get your picture taken with a real-live author! (It would be kinda gross if I were dead, right?)

5. It’s the one place where you can say you ate a book and people won’t look at you funny!

And one final one for the author …

With so many people around, most of them women, they all had cameras and the author can get a half-decent photo of her family, too! (Yep, this is my crew. The party of five.)

Thank you so much to those who attended last Friday!

    Great post. So pleased you had a great time. Maybe one day in the future I’ll get to attend anotheer of your book launch parties. :)

  • I LOVE that hidden smile. That’s about the most I EVER see in pictures. ;) LOL :)

  • oooh! Super exciting! Was it fun reading your own words to an audience? I think I would’ve been smiling the whole time :D And when you cut the cake, did you eat the part with your own name? Or did you go for the title piece? (^_~) Great pics, you have a beautiful family and congrats again on LITTLE WHITE LIES! :D

    • It WAS fun to read my own words. :) I will say though, I do everything really fast, so the feedback I got was that I read TOO fast! Ha!! :) My husband even said “You read out loud faster than I can read in my head.” ;) Ha! I didn’t get to eat my name… my kids did. LOL

  • Congrats Aimee! Looks like fun! Having people ask for your authograph is a sureal experience, isn’t it? One could get use to it, eh?

    That cake is awesome!
