Launch Party at The Red Balloon Bookshop

Friday night, The Red Balloon Bookshop hosted a launch party for Waiting For Unicorns, and let me tell you, the ladies running the show there not only love books, but they know how to throw a beautiful party. I was so warmly welcomed, I considered simply curling up and making Home right there in the stacks. After all, what better place to call home than a giant old house-turned-children's-bookshop?

Many thanks to those who came and supported me, asking questions and talking about stories, to those who purchased my book and let me sign their copies. And a special thanks to Barb, Amy, Kate, and the rest of the staff at the Red Balloon. It was a night to remember!

I so wanted to be there with you -- had it on my calendar for five weeks -- but due to fairly last minute family schedule changes, I was unable to make it. Thank you for sharing the photos. It makes me feel like I was almost there, but what I most wanted to do was give you a hug. One of these days, Beth.

Oh Barbara. Definitely a hug! It will happen. :) I anticipate more cities-related events in the future. I'll keep you posted.
