‘Voices from the Block’ Book Launching Party

This past weekend I road-tripped to Dallas, Texas for the “Voices from the Block” book launching party. This was my first official book signing and I had a great time! I learned a lot for future author related events, which I’ll share with you in another post. Like I said, I had a great time despite the fact that everything did not go according to plan. Namely, my hair was a mess, my shoes were murdering my feet (they were ridiculously cute though, lol), I was late arriving to the venue, I was crazy nervous, etc. But, if there’s one thing I’ve learned in life, it’s to appreciate the good times.  This book launching party was one of those times, and I will always remember it as my very first book signing event. Lessons were learned and  moments cherished. I can’t wait to do it again!   For now, I hope you take a little time to enjoy some pics! By the way, the party was a success: we sold out of books 🙂
