The book launch party at Brooklyn’s Sky Gallery was a huge success and so much fun! From the Ancient Greece step and repeat to the delicious Greek food and drinks, we celebrated all things Greek and all things fun. I signed over 70 books and screened the fabulous book trailer (thanks to FalconHawk Productions for making it!) and read from Chapter 34 and spent time with so many awesome friends and colleagues in glorious 30-second increments.
I’ll be honest – the soiree flew by in a blur. I had on extremely high heels and hadn’t slept at all the night before because of worrying about all the things that might go wrong after two months of planning the damn thing. BUT IT WAS GREAT. I know, because everyone told me so the next day!
Here are some pics of the action:
Hashtags are essential. We cannot survive without them.
