Partying Like Its 1969: A Launch Week Recap

If you're on this blog, I'm assuming you know that my second novel, and YA debut, launched this week. Three Day Summer is now out in the world and I hope it gives you a fun and groovy summer read!

I had a really lovely, and whirlwind, launch week that started when I realized that some Barnes & Nobles were sneakily stocking the book early over the weekend (how counter-culture of them!). So, of course, I had to go visit.

Look how STUNNING they look on the shelf!
I love that cover more every day...
And then, of course, sign some stock.

Then, on Monday, it was time for the launch party at the one and only Books of Wonder where I arrived to, as usual, a display that would warm the heart of any cynical author.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Three Day Summer party without some thematic swag and food. So floral crowns, flower power tattoos and tie-dyed cupcakes awaited all!

And then, of course, I blabbed for a bit. And signed some books!

The best part was that I had the best view in the house:

And, of course, I was thrilled to see so many people get into the spirit.

That time the culture became the counter-culture...
I am so grateful to Books of Wonder and everyone who came out for the launch. It was such a spectacular night.

And then I spent most of Tuesday celebrating online and responding to all the lovely people who took time out to congratulate me. Three Day Summer trended for a hot second on Twitter and I watched it climb a few Amazon categories:

I would call that a very successful and happy week!

Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who made it happen...near and far! You all rock harder than Santana's Woodstock set!

    She really gets what the sixties were all about, and, like, you gotta buy her book.
