Launch Party Re-cap: My Favorite Things

Tip of the Day: The 2009 Debutantes are doing group signings in a number of locations across the country this holiday season. See if they are coming near you! Check Holidaze with the Debs.

I survived!! Actually, I did better than that-- I had so much fun at my launch party!! I couldn't wait until today to blog about it so the big post is on my personal blog here.

Today, I'm going to share some of my favorite things from the party.

First, signing. I signed my arcs at ALA this summer but this was different- it was the actual book! And it was really, really fun. People started coming about ten minutes before the party started and it was pretty steady for the entire time.

Speaking of books, don't they look so pretty all set up in a big ol' stack like this?

Then of course there was all the pink. I love pink! (Did you spot the plates I was freaking out about last week?)

And I loved that so much family came! My parents and all three of my brothers (even the one from Seattle, WA) and their families, my aunts and uncles, cousins, and godparents. And of course my family, Hubby was taking mega pictures and the kids were SO good. I was very relieved!

Although my 3-yr old kept taking advantage of my being distracted to steal chocolate hearts again and again. And again.

And the writers! I love getting to chat with other writers and I was especially happy that local writers came out. Below is Kristin Walker and Trina Sotira.

And finally, I was so excited to see so many old friends-- some I hadn't seen since high school!

Thanks for the support everyone!

Kristina, Miss Delighted to Debut
