Here's what the front of the room looked like before all of the guests arrived (the seats were all filled!) Aren't the huge posters awesome!? The tv/dvd player was set up for the world premier of the Indelible book trailer. The podium, although you can't see it from this angle, was set up with the excerpt Lani read from Indelible, as well as treats for the Q & A session, and the gift cards for the giveaways.
Here's a close-up of the display from the front table. Here you can see Yara's necklace containing the pankurem plant, which she wears at all times to protect herself from baddies like Thomas (and also from the new ghost we meet in Indelible). The keys are a teaser. They feature in Indelible and every time I hold them I feel like the little kid from Galaxy Quest. "It's real, it's all real! I knew it I knew it I knew it!"
Here's the refreshment table, as it looked about 5 minutes before the party started. As the guests arrived the refreshment table got fuller and fuller until it was stuffed to capacity with homemade treats. My favorite part, which you can't see from this angle, is the slices of oranges and lemons floating in the punch bowl, which made the water taste soooo good. Corona oranges are the best in the world (that's right Florida, I'm looking at you!)
I'm calling these four ladies The White T-Shirt Brigade. These creative, beautiful, amazing ladies came up with these slogans and surprised us with these shirts. Lani and I loved every single one of them... and we want some for ourselves! You know who you are, ladies, and you are A-mazing!
Here are the books on display, ready to buy. Having been to several book signings, and seeing tables filled with books, it gave me a thrill to see Intrinsical and Indelible have their own table.
