One of the most exciting things about having a new book released is sharing the exciting moment with family and friends. This past weekend, I got to do that with a low-key-yet-very-nice book release party for RED DOG / BLUE DOG that I hosted at my house. (For my last book, I organized something bigger, so this time I went simple.) Needless to say, my dog, Graham, was a huge hit at the event and was plum tuckered by the time everything ended. This is a quick picture of Graham not being very excited that the festivities were about to begin:
Another exciting moment in the life of a new book is finally seeing it in bookstores. This picture is the first time my wife saw the book in a Barnes & Noble:
Naturally, when I got to a bookstore finally, it was time to bust out the "Autographed Sticker" copies and ink a few books. (My wife loves it when I get to do this.)
Meanwhile, this photo below shows my other humor book, HOW TO SURVIVE A GARDEN GNOME ATTACK, at a cut shop in Coeur D'Alene, Idaho. It's always such a thrill to find your books sneaking into small and unusual locations.
