So, writing friends, I thought I'd periodically have a daydream topic for us to all imagine we are famous writers and have awesome literary careers. For this first foray into dreamland, I pose the following question: describe your book release party, in full grandiose/funky/artsy detail (pretend there's no budget).
Here goes mine. So, first, I hire the Ace of Cakes to make some kind of super amazing and stupendous cake because A) they rock and B) it would be awesome to have my book talked about on TV. Did anyone ever see the fabulous cake they made for the Ghost Girl book? It was ridiculous.
My book is about a witch, so I would have a very dark theme going on. Black tablecloths and centerpieces with dark or dark purplish flowers. Maybe a raven and moon motif... something sparkly to represent magic. Of course wine and martinis. And I'd tie the whole thing together as a charity fundraiser, maybe supporting the environment or troubled teen girls. Live music, classical, as a nod to my MC. But then after lots of wine something more upbeat. I had the brilliant idea of having shirtless men passing hors d'oeuvres and cocktails, to represent the sexy shapeshifters in my book, but my husband just rolled his eyes.
So, do tell - what's your ultimate book release party fantasy? I can't wait to hear all the juicy details!
