Launch Week Mayhem and Madness!

It has been a week of crazy for me. Maybe the most crazy, ever.

Not that I'm complaining.

I had my launch party for DARKLIGHT last week and it was one of the best nights of my life! Not only was it my birthday, as well, but my mom was able to fly out from British Columbia to help me celebrate and we also premiered the book trailer for DARKLIGHT at what turned out to be one heck of a party!

I'm immensely proud of the work that was put into this video and I really want to share it with all of you. So, without further ado, I give you.....

DARKLIGHT: the trailer

Here are some shots from the party:

Check out this cake made of pure awesome!

The party in full swing!

Me trying to sign legibly (with varying degrees of success!)

Reading from the book!

And that's the back of my mom's head in that last shot as she watches her daughter read from her second published novel. Thanks for all your support through out the years, Mom! I couldn't have done it without you!

(PS - for the record, TNG Readers, my top books of last year spots were all thoroughly occupied by the works of my fellow girls. But I also enjoyed Suzanne Collins HUNGER GAMES books, Jim Butcher's TURN COAT, RJ Anderson's FAERY REBELS and Adrienne Kress's TIMOTHY AND THE DRAGON'S GATE! ANd right now I'm reading a lovely MG novel by Helen Dunsmore - THE CROSSING OF INGO which I started in late December - so I'm counting it!!)
