I like this word, launch, as if one party was something of a trampoline that sent me in one big flying leap into the world that is the craziness of a new book. I’m just trying to keep my dress from flying over my head.
I wanted talk a little bit about what I’m planning for events across the country in the next few weeks, and then to share a few photos of the party the other day at No. Six Depot (YES: the donut tower was REAL).
