Happy Birthday, FLASH BURNOUT!

This is how I feel today:

And this way:

(Flowers from friends)

My book signing yesterday at Powell's was absolutely wonderful. SO MANY people showed up for me! They kept having to set up more chairs. (Don't be too impressed ... I think 95% of them already knew me.)

I gave my little speech and it went pretty well, although I got distracted when I was throwing chocolate at people, and skipped part of it. But no one noticed, so it was okay. My FAVORITE part was when our 16-year-old friend Nathan did the reading - I could NOT STOP SMILING the whole time he was reading. I got to hear Blake's voice in an actual teen boy's voice!! He did an awesome job.

My friend Suzanne Young wrote up such a perfect post about the day that I really don't think I can improve on it. Stop by her blog to read more - there are pictures! (Ours came out weird and grainy.)

I couldn't fall asleep last night because I was just lying there in the dark, smiling, remembering the day.

Thank you to everyone who showed up!

P.S. OH!!! Please go to Jama's blog and enjoy her photo-inspired post! Jama, I <3 you!

And one day I'll be smiling through my tears when your book is born.

Belated congratulations on FLASH BURNOUT's big debut!

I've not been on LJ at all, but was just reminded that I needed to re-up and then started checking on my friends and lo and behold, realized I was not too-too late to chime in with how happy I am for your wonderful success. And I gather you have another book coming out as well in 2010! You're amazing. I can't wait to read FLASH BURNOUT. Seriously. I am struggling for words...
