Forty golden minutes of one of the most amazing nights of my life. 🙂
Yesterday’s “Codex” After Party was AWESOME! Quite a few people needed to bow out at the last minute because of a nasty cold that’s making the rounds (and one of the After Party attendees just came down with it this morning), but everybody who was able to attend had a great time. 🙂
I picked up some prizes beforehand, with the intention of holding an “answer questions about the book” contest. More about that later.
Lenora, who had purchased a physical copy of the book from Amazon, was kind enough to bring it along so that I could hold it in my hands for the first time. SO MUCH BLISS!
And of course I was happy to sign her copy. My first time signing my own novel! BLISS CUBED!
Lisa was so sweet — she bought me lunch, including a celebratory piece of caramel cheesecake! (I’m diabetic, but you just have to cut loose once in a while. And when I got home, my blood sugars were as level as if I’d eaten a completely healthy lunch, so hurray!)
Next book-related event: the McNally Robinson book launch on the evening of November 10th!
Today will be an awesome day — because this afternoon the “Codex” After Party is happening at a local restaurant! Between 8-17 people will be attending, and there will be a friendly competition where folks will be paired up to answer “Codex”-related questions. Everybody will win a prize, but the team with the most points will get first pick. ￼:)
Pictures to follow!
