Book Launch Party - Rain or Shine!

It's a book birthday party! Come celebrate the launch of Samson's Tale on Sat May 14th at the Penguin Bookshop from 1-3 pm.


This is my first time having a book party - because this one is so special to me. I'm not a huge party planner, so it is definitely taking me out of my comfort zone. Where to start? Well - since the book is about a boy and his dog and is being held during Sewickley Unleashed, a pet street fair, I decided to go with a "dog" theme. Themes are good because it gives me a direction to make decisions. So I've picked up some really cute dog napkins, plates and even some doggie lollipops! My illustrator, Kathleen Spale, also sent me a coloring page she made for the kids. Add in a few pieces of "swag" for giveaways and a cake and I think we're all set. The challenge will be getting everything to the book store. Parking is on the street and I'm not looking forward to hauling my cake several blocks if I can't find a good spot.

The weather forecast tomorrow is for rain - so great day to head to a book party! Hope to see you there!
