The greatest thing about the book launch was the license it gave me to do things I was told I never should do.
Like write on books.
Drink in a book store.
Talk to strangers.
Talk about vibrators.
Talk about vibrators AND mothers IN THE SAME SENTENCE.
Skip a meal.
Make people wait. But unlike the previously mentioned rules, I did not enjoy breaking this one. There is nothing fun about knowing that people are standing and waiting for you. And if there was some magical potion or voodoo or whatever that would make it possible for me to sign 200 books at once, I would totally grab it.
Ask people for their pants.
I did all these things and more at the launch of Paper Cuts.
It was a great day – fun and crazy doesn’t cut it. Sometimes I have to stop and remind myself it actually happened.
But it did. Because there are pictures to prove it.
So many pictures. Thank you, Jill Lejano, Melanie Vicente, Rollie Valenzuela, Lianne Bacorro, Angela Ignacio, Cresca Alcantara, Jake Ramirez, Cheryl Tiu, Gelo Arucan, Chinggay Labrador, Joice Villamor, Ces Chela Gahuman for uploading your photos.
And there are videos.
This video is my favorite.
And there are blog posts.
