Prank List Launch Recap

Posted by annastan on July 17th, 2014. Filed under: Blog Tour, Events, Reviews, The Prank List.

The Prank List blog tour continues with an interview in which I share the “secret” of writing quickly, an interview about creating a baking landscape, an interview that includes tips on writing humor, and a guest post about having multiple writing personas.

In other news, check out this snippet from a lovely review of The Prank List from VOYA:

The Prank List hooks readers with snappy dialogue from the beginning… Rachel is a likable character for middle school readers, who will relate to her problems.”

Yay! And finally, I’ve dipped my toe into Tumblr. I’m still figuring it out, but it looks like it could be fun.

So, this past weekend was the launch for The Prank List at Blue Bunny Books in Dedham, Mass. It was a great time, and I think my book was happy to have a birthday party. Here is the obligatory “book commercial” shot:

I started by talking about the book and doing a short reading, then we did a Q&A. After that it was time to decorate cupcakes!

One of the great things about the Blue Bunny, besides the fact that it’s an awesome indie bookstore, is that they sometimes have an actual bunny on the premises. It wasn’t blue, but it was still cute!

And this picture proves the scientific theory that if an author sees her books in a store window, she will pose beside them.

The celebrating continues this Saturday at Wellesley Books where I’ll be decorating cupcakes and signing books from 2-4pm. After that, I’ll be focused 100% on fine-tuning a draft of I’m With Cupid before it’s due to my editor at the beginning of August. And after that, I’ll be sneaking away on vacation and doing some serious relaxing! :-)

    Oh, that table of sugary goodness made my mouth water! It’s such a neat activity that fits in so well w/your book. And I bet the kids adored it!
