I debated for a long time what I should do to celebrate the release of my debut novel, Somewhere Only We Know. I’m so introverted and have so much trouble speaking in front of people that I knew doing an event in a bookstore would not be ideal for my very first book-signing experience. I decided instead to host a party at my house so that all of my friends and family could come get the book and celebrate with me. I’m really glad I chose to do this.
Twenty people attended my open house. I got to catch up with old friends and my favorite fiction teacher. I had so much fun celebrating the book release with all of my friends and family. And the cake was so fun! I got an edible image of my book cover.
A big thank you to everyone who was able to make it to the party. It meant so much to me that you were all there. I hope everyone enjoys reading the book and has a fantastic Thanksgiving! I’ll be enjoying turkey with my family and giving thanks for my first published book.
