Ginny Goblin Launch Party II

Hey, Ginny Fans. Yesterday was pretty awesome.

First, we had a launch party for GINNY GOBLIN CANNOT HAVE A MONSTER FOR A PET.. The Arlington Public Library hosted us again, so big thanks to them. Fifty or so people came to celebrate with me, including my family, lots of my fellow writers, and a lot of kids.

I love reading Ginny Goblin stories to kids.

HMH Kids gave us my favorite coloring sheet ever. The Friends and Foundation of the Arlington Public Library handled book sales for the book signing and they did an amazing job.

Then I got to have dinner with my family at Olive Garden, and something really fun happened.

Someone was having a birthday at the next table over, and a gang of waiters came to sing Happy Birthday. (That was not the fun part.) The birthday girl was a cute little girl named Annie.

I actually had my comp copies of MONSTER PET out in the car, so I ran out to get one and offered Annie an autographed copy for her birthday.

I see kids all the time who I’d love to share Ginny with, but I hardly ever get the chance.

Happy Birthday again, Annie, and I hope you enjoy the book.

And then I went home and slept for 10 hours. And my cat let me.

All in all, a pretty awesome day.
