Book Launch/Signing- I'M NOT HER!

Well, I've been rather quiet on the blog front. Mostly because it's been a busy week. My mommy flew in this week to come to the I'M NOT HER book party. Of course that meant I had to clean and get ready for her visit. All good. Actually I like when people visit me, the house gets a good cleaning!

So Friday night was the big night at Calgary Chapters on MacLeod Trail. I was so darn happy with my friends who not only turned up to support me, but were so genuinely happy for me too. Yay friends!

The store manager, Tracey, was also amazing, as were the staff at Chapters.

They'd recently renovated the Teen Section and we set up our tables and snacks and chairs in the area and the ambiance was perfect for a night of friends celebrating my book!

It was so great to see different friends from different parts of my life all together and all of them so darn happy for me. And me all happy! All in all, quite a happy fest!

As I promised/bribed everyone, there were cupcakes!!

But mostly it was me signing books and my friends mingling and making me feel special and fabulous.

I had a great time and thanks to all who came out to support me on my special night!
I even got not one but two beautiful and unexpected vases of FLOWERS!

A couple of readers who didn't even KNOW me bought books (lol!!)


  1. Wow, looks like it was fabulous, wish I could have beeen there, but we'll do it again in winnipeg soon:))

  2. BTW you look like Carly in that last picture!!! Never said that before. ahahhahah cool.

  3. Oh I'm glad you got some pictures! I was royally ticked that my camera's battery died even before I could take a single pic!

    It was a ton of fun and you were like so floaty and awesome like you'd done this a million times! I had a great time--so happy to cheer you on!
