Small Medium at Large Book Launch and Giveaway!

Today I went to my second ever author event! I met Joanne Levy, author of the MG book, Small Medium at Large!

This was an extra special event for me because it was so wonderfully close to home! Right in my own city!
And because of that, I was able to bring my little girl with me, who seemed to really LOVE the cupcakes!

Joanne read a short bit from the book and took some questions after signing for everyone.
The venue was packed to standing room only, which was really great to see!

I saw a few other bloggers there and I'm kicking myself now for not going to say hello.
One day I will! I promise! It's just a bit awkward for me. I think it's because I'm so much older than they all are! Haha!

We didn't stay long after the Q&A. Belle had finished her cupcakes and was getting restless. I was so proud of her for sitting quietly as long as she did!

It was a really nice time with my girl. I can't wait to do more things like this with her now that she's getting older!

I was able to get my books signed, of course! Yes, I said bookS. Plural. You didn't think I'd forget about you guys, did you? ;)

And the swag bag! OMG, I've never SEEN such swag! As a blogger, I realize that I sometimes get some perks, and I'm so unbelievably grateful and thankful for EVERYTHING that authors do for us, but this? This was like I've never seen before!

Joanne put together a bag with two ARCs, a cupcake and a TON of bookmarks, stickers, buttons and other sundry, some of it signed by her fellow authors!
