Yesterday was a good day. Yesterday was my very first book birthday.
In the Shadow of the Gods came out yesterday. I’d been planning to spend the night relaxing, a quiet celebration all to myself…but I should have known better. I always forget how wonderful my friends and family are, and they threw me a surprise book birthday party. It was an excellent celebration, and being surrounded by so much love was definitely a better call than a quiet night pretending to myself that I was relaxing.
I signed some copies of my book. I got gently teased. My ham of a dog got more attention than he could ever hope for. Everyone made me a different kind of potato (my favorite food), which was sweet and hilarious. I ate too much food, played a few games, and enjoyed good company.
It was a good day.
