|I love the details on the cake.|
Last weekend, Kat and I headed to the Northern Virginia bookstore,One More Page Books, for the release party of Skylark by Meagan Spooner. We’ve been excited for this book since BEA, so we just had to go to the release.
The party was packed with friends and family of Meagan along with readers, booksellers and of course bloggers.
Meagan made a wonderful speech to start off the night. You can tell she has great friends and family supporting her. During the signing she took her time talking with each person and writing a personal message in each book.
Meagan has such a great energy about her and towards the end of the night she took the time to talk us about her journey to publication and her writing process.
We got to see the UK cover of Skylark and learned that the genre of the novel is less Dystopian and more Magical Steampunk. Doesn’t that sound like an awesome genre ?
The party was catered by Asia Nine and featured some unique sushi and other Asian fusion bites. The food was delicious, but the cake was the star of the event. It was beautifully decorated by Meagan’s roommate. So shiny !

We also got to hang out with writer/blogger Markella fromHardcover Life. Kat and I already love her reviews so go check out Hardcover Life. It was so wonderful meeting other book lovers out in the “real world”
We wish Meagan the best of luck. Her next novel These Broken Stars (co-authored with her best friend Amie Kaufman) sounds amazing.
