History did not repeat itself, however.
About 45 people came to my book launch party. My writer friends, co-workers, drinking buddies, and even some high school friends. It was a success by all accounts. Pictures below will attest to that. There's even a couple of videos you need to check out.
I was exhausted for several days after. All the excitement of being published and promoting myself and the party really took it out of me. But it was a good tired. Not an "I cleaned house all day" tired. Thanks to everyone who came. You guys are the best. And a big thank you to Trolley's https://www.facebook.com/trolleysparkcentralpub Couldn't have done it without your support.
