Kristin Walker's Launch Party Recap & GIVEAWAY

I had a great time at Kristin Walker's launch party for her fun book, A MATCH MADE IN HIGH SCHOOL today.

Here's Kristin signing books:






















See the cute little engagement rings in front of her? She was giving one away with each book. Adorable! Weddings were the theme of the whole party (like in her book when the characters have to get "married" as part of a class project) and there was wedding music playing and favors like matchbooks (filled with paper) and wedding cupcakes. Too cute!






















Here's me and Kristin:

















And here are all the super cool SCBWI-IL writers that came out:

















I didn't get a picture but I met this cute elderly woman there who told me that she was a writer too and that she writes short stories, wraps a dollar in them, and then mails them out to her 5 grandchildren. Isn't that awesome? :-)

I had a blast and one lucky blog reader gets some fun too. I bought an extra book, had it autographed, and grabbed some schwag (paper matchbook, bookmarks, engagement ring).
















For a chance to win the above, comment on this post.

How about that.
Sounds scrumptious, especially to sit down with a good cupcake and an even better book. Here's hoping!
