A Girl's Gotta Watch Her Figure(s)

Hey, the picture may be small, but the launch sure wasn't! Thanks to friends, supporters, readers, and cupcake fanatics last night, Mia and the Magic Cupcakes sold 144 copies. The girl is off to a great start...

Putting out our own hardback children's book has been a learning experience, start to finish. Or at least start to midway point. Our work is not done until we've recouped some costs! But what a great evening. There were gifts for granddaughters (and a couple grandsons!), goddaughters,plain-old daughters, teachers, aunts, cousins, neighbors. Margo's house was storybook beautiful, as usual, with all the candles and Christmas trees (yes--plural), and did I mention the woman can bake? I enjoyed a chocolate-peppermint cupcake, but I know I saw Red Velvet and Pumpkin and Salted Caramel, among other flavors.

What a thrill it was to gather around the Christmas tree and celebrate together. I can't tell you how gratifying it is to have readers who laugh in all the right places. Your friendship is the best gift of all. XOXO.

If you missed out, catch the traveling roadshow this Sunday at Pinkabella Cupcakes in Redmond Town Center, 2-3 p.m. Kids welcome! Or Tuesday afternoon, 12/7, in Bellevue Square. And stay tuned for a University Book Store event in 2011...


  1. what time is the event in Bell Sq. on the 7th??

  2. My life is a Boys' Swim Team blur for the next few weeks, but I would love to get a copy of Mia and also another copy of TLD!

  3. Hi, "Anonymous"--Belle Sq is at 2p.m. also on 12/7. Hope to see you there, whoever you are. :)

    And Marie, I'd love to get you your books! We could go via Eldon at Pro or you could get Univ Book Store to ship them (free) across town to you. LMK on FB.
