The HAVEN Launch Party!

 First off, I want to thank everyone who came out for the HAVEN launch party!  It was wonderful so see so many "familiar" faces--like fellow Elevensie Sheela Chari (author of the upcoming middle-grade gem VANISHED), the wonderful women of Good Choice Reading (Damaris, Wanda, and Lisa), Pam from Midnyte Reader, Rachel from Bookshelf Lust, Maria from the Serpentine Library....I'm sure I'm missing some people, but you were *all* appreciated!!   The store was filled with family, friends, bloggers, readers, and even my wonderful editor.   

The store looked amazing--a huge thank you to Francine, Rose, and Steve at The Voracious Reader!  When I left work on Friday, the store looked like it usually did, but when I showed up on Sunday, it had been transformed--the front window dedicated to HAVEN, plus an entire table with a huge banner over it!!  

I brought a huge tray of sushi rolls, plus four dozen enormous petit-fours from the La Delice downtown (a wonderful little pastry shop on Third Ave) and my mother-in-law's famous blondies....and I only brought home four petit-fours!

Lots of books were signed, goody bags were given out, HAVEN cookies were consumed, many photos were taken--it was pretty much the perfect day!  The only way it could have been better?!  If I could have shared it with ALL of you!  I gave my husband my camera to photograph the day, and he took exactly *three*--none of which were good!  So, all these pictures are courtesy of the folks who attended--if anyone else has pictures, please send them to me so I can add them to my collection!

Oh, and I have several goody bags (with cookie!) left over, so at some point in the near future, I'll be doing some sort of contest/giveaway for the leftovers, so stay tuned!

What a wonderful event. I can't even imagine how exciting and I'm sure nerve wracking it was for you! Maybe the next release you will have some of your #yatwitches to cheer you on :o)
