The Launch Party for DINOSAUR BOY took place on February 6, 2015 at the Writing Barn in Austin, Texas! It was a fun night, full of dinosaurs, candy, trivia, and getting in touch with your own personal brand of “weirdness.” Here are some photos!
Arrivals on the “Green Carpet”
Party Food from Hecho en Mexico (molé, of course!), Sylvie’s Candy Bar, and dino decorations!
I did a little presentation to introduce the book, a short reading, and then some dinosaur trivia with prizes!
Then I signed a lot of books!
I even signed the wall! (A tradition at the Writing Barn)
More Party Pics!
There were some fantastic entries into the BOOK OF WEIRD (more on that to come!)
I’m so grateful to everyone who came out and made the evening so special – I’m particularly thankful to Bethany Hegedus and the Writing Barn for having us, and to Danny Woodfill from the Book Spot for selling books. Also to this crew right here: my nearest and dearest – I could not have done it (any of it!) without you guys!
It was a very special evening for me, with so many memories and great moments. But I have to say that my favorite moment of the night was catching this handsome young gentleman with his nose in my book. It’s the kind of stuff we Kid Lit authors live for!
Thank you to everyone who came out to support Dinosaur Boy! I love and appreciate you all more than I could ever tell you. Thanks for giving my dino-baby a terrific send-off into the world!
