candy station! with Butterfingers in honor of Roy, the main boy character in the novel - you got to choose candy sticks and a super fun doggy bookmark as well.
Prize Wheel! My lovely and lively pal Paige ran this station - you could spin the wheel and get all sorts of swag including little dogs and horses (which go along with the novel, of course)
We also had a western tattoo station - here is my darling daughter Meagan playing the part - she did a great job running this station :)
There was a fantastic turn out - and everyone seemed to be having a great time. I can't express how it feels to see people hold your book like this. Amazing.
I signed books!
We had a Western Photo Booth! That was the big hit of the day, for sure. Here I am with my hubby, kids and mom hamming it up. Props to Picture It Photo Booths for their amazing service.
Noble from The Kings English Bookshop came down from Salt Lake as our bookseller. The frog and foam hats you see in the background were give aways too. He was such a good sport, especially when I dragged him into the photo booth for a 'matching moustache' pic....
All in all a great event - and none of it could have happened without the support of friends, family, fellow writers and readers. That continually amazes and surprises me. Thanks all!
