I had a small launch party for Burnout today, with close family and friends in attendance.
It went wonderfully, with "space" decorations, dry ice in the punch bowl, and a good friend (who happens to be a gourmet cook) "catering." Delicious spinach dip, hot artichoke-parmesan dip, chicken puffs, teriyaki meatballs, quiche, shrimp cocktail, marinated bacon-wrapped water chestnuts, fruit bowls, meat, cheese and vegetable trays... And champagne toasts!
Some of my friends showed up with books in hand (already! It only hit the market Wednesday!) to be signed and I did so gladly.
I don't think it had quite hit me that my book was out...until today.
I am an author.
