First of all, I did have a fantastic book launch party way back on June 23. Junior and senior pirates alike enjoyed swag, food, and yeah, a bunch of books.
|freebie pirate swag galore|
|120 attendees--and some weren't even my personal friends|
|pirate cookies & book cake were both hits|
Shortly after the launch, I took a well-deserved (if I say so myself) break to lovely San Diego, which is fast becoming our family's vacation spot of choice.
|Sunset Cliffs--highly recommended if you love sunsets, oceans, cliffs ... you get it.|
After that, I was off to Watermark Books & Cafe in Wichita for a book signing and general merriment with my supercool poet mother-in-law, Diane Wahto.
So now I'm settling back in to writing, reading, and blogging, and I hope to keep you up to date on the goings-on, such as they are.
