Last month , I went on a whirlwind blog tour to promote Story Sprouts: CBW-LA Writing Day Exercises and Anthology 2013, so I wasn’t able to tell you much about the happenings in my corner of the world.
So today, allow me to get you caught up on at least one of these fun happenings.
Exactly a month ago, on January 7th, I attended the book launch for ENDERS, the last book in Lissa Price’s Starters Duology.
It was a Tuesday night, and L.A. traffic was crazy as usual, but lots of fans and friends turned up at Vroman’s in Pasadena to celebrate with Lissa.
After being introduced by Vroman’s events manager, Lissa took up the podium. She shared the story of Starters, her journey to publication, and the whirlwind book tour in Europe that happened last summer.
Two high school seniors re-enacted a scene from the book between Callie, the main protagonist, and Hyden, her love interest.
After the reading, Lissa gave away some raffle prizes. A few lucky people won books donated by Lissa’s author friends.
The signing line was long and filled with the excited buzz of friends and fans. Maiko and I got our signed copies, of Enders, of course.
Lissa, being the generous person that she is, also invited guests to the after party at the nearby El Portal restaurant.
The night wound done with good food and good company.
