Scary zombie Candace!
Hello once again Readers!!!! What’s that? I became a creepy zombie somewhere between the Flaming Dr. Peppers and Margaritas?!? AHHHHHH!!! The zombie apocalypse has begun, don’t forget to double tap!
So the party was AWESOME. Really, it was. I was very lucky to have so many supporters show up and be honestly excited about my accomplishment. It was refreshing and heartwarming and I am nothing but appreciative.
Oodles of yummy-goodness.
We also had tons of yummy food. See —>
That’s right…be jealous. I ate more than I think I ever have in my entire life! I jogged forever today to make up for my lack of discipline lol.
Now shall I take you on a tour? Follow me…
We had a little bit of spanish food (my all-time favorite).
BBQ pork and pulled chicken.
Macaroni, cake…the list goes on and on. And we still had left overs!
I guess I should have grabbed some from Sonya *sigh*.
But I digress. The best part of the party was the prizes Sonya and I spent hours trying to come up with. We wanted to be inventive and unique. So what better than to give away items from Born in Flames? Things like necklaces, posters, and paintings.
Free copies of the book were given to those who hadn’t read it yet in return for and honest review and extra paintings of mine were raffled off.
But my most favorite prize was the coveted Stone of Immortality. We used trivia questions for those who had read the book to make it fair. Everyone was excited to play! Those few who hadn’t read it even gave it a shot. To say the least, the night was perfect!
And after the majority left, the music was cranked up and the Flaming Dr. Peppers were served to celebrate all the hard work put into getting this far and to also celebrate all the wonderful things to come, because it’s only up from here my friends!!
You can’t really see the flames, but you get the drift.
So I must say thank you once again to everyone! Your love and support is the wind beneath my wings. If you want to see more pictures of the night, like my author facebook page and check them out. It was one of the best nights of my life.
Now for the fun stuff folks. An Oraculus giveaway. Everyone should have a place to write their own fate. And one lucky winner will.
Woohoo!! Congratulations Staci! And thank you so much for taking the time to post your fantastic review. It is greatly appreciated!!! Shoot me you address at firstname.lastname@example.org and I will send this lovely gift your way!
That’s it for now my peeps.
Except for one small, exciting blip of news…Embracing the Flames is now finished and in the hands of my publisher!!! More news to come with that! Now I will begin writing the last installment to the trilogy which has a title, From the Embers.
Love my blog family,
