Last night, I joined 7 other authors for Book Buzz 2013 at Stone Creek Bar and Lounge. It was such a blast! I enjoyed meeting all of these authors in person for the first time after having tweeted and emailed with them for the last couple of years. And I have to say, I was blown away by how amazingly awesome each and every one of them were. I don’t think I could have asked for a better group of authors to hang out with for an evening.
The line up of amazing women included:
- Francine LaSala
- Meredith Schorr
- Samantha Stroh Bailey
- Cari Kamm
- Lucie Simone
- Jen Tucker
- Eileen Goudge
Our signature drink, the Pink Stiletto was delish! Thanks to our drink sponsor Shpilka Vodka for providing us with such yummy refreshments!
And the food looked so good! I saw many happy readers enjoying the fare! Diversion Books was generous and kept the yumminess coming from the kitchen all evening. Thank you!
I swear I had minor fangirl moments with each author. “Excuse me, Ms. Schorr, um, could I, um, get a picture with you?”
Our table full of books, swag and goodies was beyond awesome. How could you not want to walk away with a bag full of books with this kind of selection in front of you. I was honored and humbled to be included in this mix of talented writers! And I have to give a huge shout out and thank you to Julie Valerie for helping us out at the table all evening. We couldn’t have mixed and mingled without you! (Somehow, she’s the only one I didn’t get a photo of!)
I spent the evening chatting with my fellow authors, meeting new people, and generally just enjoying the experience!
As the evening wrapped up, it was great to see new friends—and hopefully fans!—walk out with books and our giveaway cookies. The gorgeous cookies were made by Virginia Patterson! I cannot tell you how thrilled my girls were to see these cookies in my kitchen this morning! LOL. They said, and I quote exactly, “Look mom! Margaritas!” Yes, they are my children. And yes, I do, on occasion, make margaritas. 🙂 However, to be truthful, these look much more like cosmos than margaritas, but I won’t hold that against the cookies. LOL.
By the end of the night, we were all a smiling through the pain of sore feet from those damn sexy stilettos! And a few of us, not naming names… Jen Tucker… started getting a little silly…
I had a fantastic time meeting all of these wonderful, talented authors, their friends, husbands, publishers, and every other guest who stopped by to visit with us! And as I limped across the street to the parking garage, I was so thankful I’d remembered to grab my Uggs before leaving the house! Ouch…
