KEEPER Launch Party Details!

September 5th, 2012 | Blog Uncategorized


Yes–the time has finally come for me to freak out tell you about some of the exciting things I have planned for the release of KEEPER OF THE LOST CITIES. Specifically the terrifying Launch Parties!

And yes–I mean parties plural. I figured, I was already worrying that no one would come to one launch party, so why not double the stress????? 🙂

No, really, what it came down to is that there's one Indie Book Store that not only holds a very special place in my heart, but is a large part of the reason KEEPER exists. So I couldn't imagine not doing my launch there. BUT, when I started telling SoCal friends and family that the launch would be in Arizona, well… lets just say they were less than happy with me (I'm now very glad I didn't have a destination wedding–it would not have gone over well).

SO, I'm doing TWO launches in TWO different states in ONE action packed week—and then probably collapsing or fleeing to Mexico.  Should be good times!

Here are the details for both events:

SoCal Launch Party
When: Tuesday, October 2
Time: 6:30 pm
Where: Barnes & Noble Oceanside
2615 Vista Way
Oceanside, CA 92054

Changing Hands Launch Party
When: Saturday, October 6
Time: 5:00 pm
Where: Changing Hands Bookstore
6428 S McClintock Dr
Tempe, AZ 85283 

I really hope some of you guys can come. In fact, I will love you forever. Like, SERIOUSLY.  I am begging hoping you'll decide to make me the happiest person ever (seriously, EVER) and come hang out. 
There will be rambling! And nervous giggling! And awkward moments where I can't decide if I should hug or handshake so we do that sort of clumsy half step-dancy thing!
Who DOESN'T want to be there for all of that????????

And since I am not above bribing you because I love you guys, there will also be exclusive swag and prizes! (Some pretty awesome things, if I do say so myself.) I'm also working on getting food and other yummy things. I'm not sure what the stores will allow, but I'll do what I can to have a few treats.

So mark those calendars! I'll update with any additional details as I figure them out and do my best to remind you guys (warning: I will probably be a bit obnoxious about this–I am SO SCARED no one will come). You can also find info on all my upcoming events on my Appearances Page.

Hope to see some of you there!
