Okay, I'm in launch party panic. I'm at just over a month until my book comes out (OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG) and I don't have anything set up yet for a first signing/launch whatever you want to call it. Here are my two ideas so far:
1) Signing at B&N-- preferably in the cafe area
2) Launch Party at an indie coffee shop. Hopefully get a bookstore to come sell books.
And there's where I'm at. I did contact the B&N and I'm waiting to hear back but the closer we get to release the more I'm panicking. I've been going through blogs to see what other authors did. Megan Frazer (Secrets of Truth and Beauty) had hers at an indie bookstore. Malinda Lo (Ash) had hers at the LGBT Community Center. Kate Messner (Brilliant Fall of Gianna Z.) had hers in a coffee shop. And Cyn Balog (Fairy Tale) had hers at a library.
What do you guys think? Where do you like to go for author launch parties? Bookstores (indie? B&N? Borders?), cafes, parks, restaurants, libraries?Kristina, Miss Delighted to Debut
