Glamour in Glass launch party

Last night’s launch party for Glamour in Glass was great fun. I held it at Case Study Coffee, which is almost like holding it in my office because I am there so frequently. The space was wonderful for an evening event like this and the owners, Wes Russell and Christine Herman-Russell, acted as staff for the event. Such lovely people.

I think we had around seventy-five guests from all different areas of my life. Friends, people I corresponded with during the Month of Letters, fellow writers, members of the Oregon Regency Society, and wine industry friends all turned up. It was, as they used to say, quite a press of people.  We also had live music from the Regency with Nebula-nominee Dave Goldman on the keyboard and a lively fiddler, Ellen. I’d hoped to have a little dancing occur, but the room quickly became too full for that.

I spent most of the evening signing books and learned some important things.

  1. Next time around, I need a name that isn’t 23 characters long.
  2. Opening sentences, particularly ones that get omitted, should be as short as possible. Next time I will opt for “Call me Jane,” and be done with it.
  3. People are wonderful, and willing to stand in line for a long, long time as one scribbles in books.

Tonight, I’m off to the Powell’s in Beaverton to read, perform a tiny little puppet show, and to write a very long sentence in some more books.

If you want to look at more pictures, I have a few from the event.

  1. So, it just occurred to me, perhaps a bit too late, that sitting behind the author at an author signing likely resulted in me(or at least the back of my hat) being in a lot of pictures.
    I had a great time, and am enjoying the book tremendously!

  5. we had such a delightful time, thank you so much–both for the  invitation to the launch party & your thoughtful acknowledgement in the book . It really was an honour to contribute our teeny bit to the cause.  Best wishes, I hope this book is also nominated for a Hugo 🙂

  6. Mine came today.  Didn’t realize it would be so pretty!  Immediately checked out the first line to compare with my excerpt at the back of the TPB Shades. 🙂
