The Release Party!
Was a complete success!! I was so nervous!!
What if I didn't know what to say?
What if I fell down the stairs?? 😝😝
But none of that happened. My dad introduced me and it was so lovely.
I gave a shout-out to my editor, Caitlin McKenna (Scoria Press) and everyone clapped for her. I mean, of course I would. Awakening wouldn't be what it is without her ❤️
Then my lovely friend, Karlie, did an amazing, amazing reading! I couldn't have done it better myself!
No, seriously. I couldn't lol.
Her voice was so beautiful. She will definitely be doing an audio version lol. Then there was a question and answer segment. I was asked a lot! But when I was asked about starting the company and what pushed me to write, I definitely had to call down my brother, Rudy, who has so much to do with it (he's in the green)
Frank, also from Scoria Press, asked me a great, great question.
Then I could finally get a glass of wine!! And the party commenced!! Drinks, laughs, pictures!! And cutting the cake!! (Yummy cake!!)
The night was a blast and all the gitters left me. We announced the winner for the raffle. Congrats Jenn Bourne for winning the $200 gift card and a free signed copy of Awakening! We raised about $700 for #26forTiera, which is so awesome!
I can't thank everyone enough for coming and celebrating with me.
