Party Time!!! Woohoo!!!

Tricycle Press is throwing a book launch party for Hugging the Rock and you're invited.

Yes you, behind the potted plant. I know you were just waiting to be asked. 

WHERE?  Books, Inc. 301 Castro Street, Mountain View, CA. 
                   (Thank you, literaticat

WHEN? Wednesday, September 27th at 7pm

INCENTIVES? You mean in addition to seeing me?

                                  #1 I will read a few poems from the book. 
                                  #2 You can buy the book and then have it autographed. 
                                  #3 Refreshments will be served.

                                          Bring your "rock" 
        and you might win an autographed copy of Hugging the Rock.
You don't have to RSVP but we are trying to get a headcount to make sure there are enough refreshments for everyone. If you would like to be added to the Evite guest list, send me an email stb AT susantaylorbrown DOT com

                Click here to see the neat poster Tricycle made for the event. 
                      Feel free to print it out (this is the small 8-1/2" by 11" version) 
                  and post it if you know of any great Silicon Valley places to do so.

And please please please, if you live or work in this area, I'd really appreciate help in spreading the word. My biggest fear is that we throw a party and no one shows up. So thanks in advance for passing it on.

If you don't live in this area but DO want to know when I travel to other areas, make sure you subscribe to my newsletter which will keep you informed of future events.

Hey--Castro Street used to be part of my old stomping grounds! (I lived off of Charleston in south Palo Alto.) Wish I could stop by--but I'm sure you'll have a good turnout. Best of luck. :)

I could spend hours going up and down Castro street. So much to see.

I saw that you friended me, so I friended you back :)

Here's to a fantabulous launch party! Wish I could attend, but unfortunately, I'm in Florida.

I loved the excerpt from Hugging the Rock that you posted on your website and can't wait to read your book in its entirety.

I also write verse novels and am currently shopping my YA novel-in-verse State of Mind to agents. Wish me luck!

Have a wonderful launch party!
August 21st, 2006 03:44 pm (UTC)
Thanks for friending me back and the good wishes on the launch. I appreciate your kinds words about the excerpt.

Fingers crossed for you to find the perfect home for your own verse novels.
August 18th, 2006 12:11 am (UTC)
This sounds so fun. I wish I could go:)

Yay! Wish I could be there. I'd bring a coral rock from the bay.

Who am I?I was born on the Cancer/Leo cusp and share a birthday with Ernest Hemingway and Robin Williams. The similarities don't stop there as I can go from depressed to ecstatic without ever passing go. I feel scared most of the time though my friends call me brave and I find it easier to believe in my friends than to believe in my own abilities to make what I want out of my life.

Who am I? A wife, a mother, a daughter, and even, gulp, a grandmother.

Who am I? A writer who never gets tired of playing with words, even when the words are hard to find. A writer of books for children and articles for grown-ups and many things in-between.

Who am I? A motivational speaker, writing instructor, workshop leader and full-time follower of dreams.

Who am I? Read and find out.

"Successful writers are not the ones who write the best sentences. They are the ones who keep writing. They are the ones who discover what is most important and strangest and most pleasurable in themselves, and keep believing in the value of their work, despite the difficulties."
--Bonnie Friedman

"As writers, we must be willing to feel our sadness, our anger, our terror, so we can reach in and find our sweet vulnerability that is just sitting there waiting for us to come back home."
--Nancy Slonim Aronie

"Writers write about what obsesses them. You draw those cards. I lost my mother when I was 14. My daughter died at the age of 6. I lost my faith as a Catholic. When I'm writing, the darkness is always there. I go where the pain is."
--Anne Rice
