Ditched Launch Party

Last Sunday I had the pleasure of attending the launch party for Ditched by the lovely Robin Mellom. If you recall, I absolutely loved this book, so I was so excited to celebrate it wit Robin and my southern California writing buddies. It was such a fantastic event...the bookstore in Santa Monica that hosted the signing was completely adorable, there was FOOD, and there were so many cute little touches all over.

Delicious Ditched cake

Ditched koozies

Tinkerbell tattoos, just like Justina's in the book
This sucker took forever to scrub off. Even after showers and washings, I still had it on for like three days.

There was a great crowd gathered for Robin, and everyone was so excited for her and for the book. 

It was such a fun event, and I'm so glad I made the trek up to Santa Monica to celebrate the launch of this book that I loved so much. You can see more pictures of the launch party over at Robin's blog...see if you can spot me lurking around in the background.

  2. I'm so jealous of people who live in areas where cool stuff like this happens. Being in the fly-over midwest, I don't have nearly as many fun things like this. However, you've prompted me to pay closer attention, just in case... :)

    Looks like fun!

    1. You never know...authors who are from the midwest probably have launch parties and signings by their homes. Be on the lookout!

    1. Sometimes I wish I didn't stand out so much. ;-) But I guess it's useful to be easy to spot!
