LYM's Homecoming Launch Party!

Hi Everyone,

My last post talked about my July trip to Connecticut, and the death of my grandmother. It was a bittersweet thing to write, and I've been meaning to post a happier follow up, because the trip did have a highlight:

I had a "homecoming" launch party for Last Year's Mistake with friends, family, former co-workers, and even some new fans at the Fairfield University Book Store.

It was a great success, but I haven't had time to tell you about it, because of this little thing called Book 2 (not its real name) that's been taking up lots of my time. And then there's this other thing:

Which, of course, is not a "thing" at all. My little guy recently turned two, and I swear he has enough energy and to light a small country. So now that I actually have 5 minutes where I'm not writing and not wrangling a toddler, I thought I'd share some photos from Launch Number Two (Recap of LYM's release week and photos from Launch Number one can be found HERE).

*** Special shout out to my husband and party planner extraordinaire,*** who organized the refreshments, and surprised me by hiring a photographer to snap pictures of the event. It's something I never would've thought to do, but I'm so glad he did, because the night was a big blur.

And, as always, a huge thank you to everyone who came out to Fairfield that night, to everyone who has bought and/or read, and/or reviewed LYM, to everyone who took the time to cook or bake, and to everyone who continues to show love and support to me and my books.

You are so very appreciated.

If you want proof of how happy you make me, just take a look at the smile on my face in these pictures.


He has plans for that Sharpie. None of them good.

My parents rocked their "My Daughter Wrote" t-shirts....

"Never be ashamed to be yourself" is how I signed this book,
and many others. Kelsey's been there, so have I. We're all good enough.
