  11. Oh My, Holly! I have been slowly descending from my SCBWI conference high and as I read through all my fave blogs you are EVERYWHERE!! You go girl! I LOVE the trailer or TMAS and I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.

    Oh, and BTW, your dress ROCKS.

  12. Looks like it was super fun. And I love your book trailer. Congrats, Holly!

  13. Thanks to all of you! It sure was a lot of fun. I think my favorite thing was how nice the bouncers were...I have a feeling we weren't their usual crowd, a bunch of nice book lovers with a case of cupcake love!

    And you looked like Alice from Alice in Wonderland. So pretty!
    Love, Hannah

  15. Thank you, Hannah! You are such a sweetie. Did you know Alice is my favorite? I even have a facebook profile pic that is husband and me about 10 yrs ago, dressed as Mad Hatter and Alice. ;)

  16. Oh, Holly, I'm so sorry to have missed your party! Only a promise to babysit my grandson that night kept me away. Thanks for posting your pictures. You look like you're ready to attend the Academy Awards! (And the food looked great too.)
    All best,
