Parties and Events!

Okay, we're in the home stretch before my new baby, THE LITTLEST DOUBTS gets officially launched, and I don't seem to be the only person confused. For a certain space of time (i.e., until I can recover some of my costs), I'm holding off on getting TLD on Amazon or in the bookstore. The one exception will be the Kindle edition, which I'll try to get up on or before D-Day.

Here are some key dates for you:

Tuesday, May 25. The official launch date. If you would like to come to the evening party, lay hands on your copy and scarf down a Pinkabella cupcake, then I need your email address for the evite. Shoot it to me at bellavitapress@gmail.com.

Thursday, May 27. Launch party numero due. Another evening affair. No cupcakes, but there will be other noshes, and, of course, Cass and Friends!

Thursday, June 3. I'll be visiting the Overlake Country Club book club at 3:00 p.m. to talk about MOURNING BECOMES CASSANDRA. This isn't an official launch party, but I'll have copies of the sequel with me. I don't imagine you can come unless a member invites you, but you can always pose as my relative.  :)

Friday, June 4. Another evening launch party. Does this date work better for you? Shoot me an email at bellavitapress@gmail.com.

Tuesday, June 8. Woo hoo! A morning book party! 9:30 a.m. Same deal. Let me know if you'd like an invitation.

For my out-of-town readers or local fans who are chronically overscheduled, you can always hit me up when you see me or buy directly off the Bellavita Press website after the launch date. I hope to do a book event in the Bay Area in August... And I will eventually get it on Amazon. Probably June.

Feeling poor but literate? Request that your local library purchase a copy. Direct them to the Bellavita Press website or Amazon.

Oh, and if you still haven't had a chance to hear me read from MOURNING, I'll be speaking during the "Writers Read!" session of Plymouth Church's Many Voices Pentecost Arts Festival in Seattle on Saturday, May 22, between 4-6 p.m. This will be an abbreviated version of the talk I gave at Seattle U's Book Festival--mostly about all the rules my book accidentally broke. Copies available for sale! Hope to see some friendly faces.


  1. I can't wait!! I'm coming to the launch party on the 25th.

  2. Congratulations, Christina! We're really looking forward to TLD.
