One of my favorite things about releasing a new title is getting the chance to celebrate that new title! I like to do things BIG. And for this book release party, I had the help from Sola Coffee Cafe in Raleigh, NC. They very generously hosted the party and provided the most adorable, local and yummy space for everyone to gather and celebrate.
The party was held from 3:00pm – 5:00pm. In June. Outside. It was HOT. But that’s ok, kids rarely grasp the intensity of heat.
I was busy selling and signing books while the kids crafted their little hearts out. They left with their very own paper ice cream cones and bookmarks. We were also stocked to the brim with bubbles and sidewalk chalk.
For sweets, we had delicious and beautiful cookies donated by Kicker Konfections out of Apex, NC. These were absolutely adorable and shaped like little milk bottles. I was over the moon with the quality of her cookies.
I was also thrilled to have a massive donation of 100 milk bottles from Pop Up Party’s. If guests bought a book, they got a complimentary milk bottle. Because, less spills, right?
It was an absolutely wonderful day, and I can’t wait to celebrate another title release. Until then, I will keep busy with author school visits, the best part of this job!
