I had such a fun weekend and it's not over yet! Three-day weekends are the best.
The book launch went really well. I was so happy to see so many of you there and to meet new friends and fans. (Guys, I have fans! It's so cool!) I got to sign books in the same room that Margaret Atwood signed and Jimmy Carter and like every famous YA author that's ever come to Salt Lake City (Lauren Oliver, Rick Riordan, Ally Condie, etc.) Even Christopher Paolini—my erstwhile crush. Reading aloud from my book was the tiniest bit awkward, but I just swallowed my pride and went for it. There was also a super fun question and answer time and we took a character quiz that I'll put up online later this week and there was a raffle and people won prizes. So basically it was all things awesome and I'm still super pumped about it.
Also, a huge shout-out to all the kind folks at The King's English. They made me feel like a rock star. Love them. And a special thank you to Lexie for loaning me her gorgeous dress and to Kaeli for being my stylist.
Okay. On to the blog tour.
Our final stop on the tour is at the wonderfully bookish blog Jorielovesastory.com.
And since it's the last day for your reading pleasure, I bring you TWO posts.
1. A guest post (written by me) with Jorie's thoughts at the end.
2. Jorie's review of Liam Darcy, I Loathe You, which is long and awesome and gave me the warm fuzzies.
I hope you've all enjoyed reading along to the blog tour. I am super grateful to all the bloggers who participated. This was my first blog tour and it was thoroughly awesome. Thank you, thank you, thank you, all.
And while I'm thanking people, I just want to say thanks again to Melissa and Michelle, who not only created my beautiful book, but who came out to support me at my book launch because they are awesome like that.
I'll post more launch party pics soon. :)
