Launch Party Couture

Did I buy my girls matching dresses that coordinate with my ‪#‎bookcover‬ for my ‪#‎booklaunchparty‬ ? Why yes. Yes I did. 
And this brings me to another little author tip. Pick a dominant color from your cover and use it as a theme at events - signing pens, your outfit, the tablecloth you put out at signings (wait... you don't put out a tablecloth?!? Well there's another tip. Get a tablecloth on Amazon or at HomeGoods or something. Totally cute, like $7, and makes you stand out at the venue).

Postal People Are My People

Ah the post office. My home away from home during the wild and crazy days of "new book promo." Is it weird that I want a display like this in my house? I digress. Here is an author tip: If you are mailing your books out, be sure to ask for "book rate" - it's a less expensive mailing rate for media.

Chicken Coops and Sailboats

I lived on a sailboat in the Greek Isles and in a converted chicken coop in Canterbury, England. But what does "home" mean? What makes a place more than just where you eat and sleep? I'm working on a book about this concept. Therefore I am having deep thoughts. Which is rare. Usually my thoughts are quite shallow and focus mainly around Nutella. Anyhoo...

Who loves a party? I love a party!

And I'd love for you to come to my book launch party on April 9th at 11:30 am at the Barnes and Noble in Jensen Beach. My launch is planned for the same day as my illustrator's party, as well as some super awesome blog posts (thank you Tara Lazar!) (thank you Sky Pony!). 

So I'm declaring April 9th HYPNOSIS HARRY DAY!

There. It's official.
