Today’s the Day!

It’s release day for my debut Mistress by Mistake! Firsts like this don’t come along every day, and I want to savor the moment…and would, if I weren’t feeling nauseous and insane. šŸ™‚ Here’s the first sighting of the book on the shelves that I received last week from a wonderful woman in Hawaii. Hawaii! And how I wish I were there, lying under a palm tree with a pineapple drink in hand. I guess I could go drink a pina colada in Maine to celebrate if my stomach settles.

How have you celebrated special occasions in your life? Comment to win a copy of Mistress by Mistake!

    Have a glass of champagne and chocolate-covered strawberries. Yummy! šŸ˜‰

    Congrats Maggie! Suuuweeeeettt!!!! So excited for you! šŸ˜†

    Vegas — we don’t go as often as we’d like but that’s what my DH and I like to do to celebrate special occasions! Hmmm, a milestone anniversary is coming soon. I think you should celebrate the release of MBM with a Hawaii vacation!

    BTW, mahalo, the surprise was very nice!

    congratulations on the book.
    I always love to really celebrate on special occassions, but usually do this in a quiet way with a few friends or something like that.

    I don’t really mind where I spend special occasions as long as I’m with people I care for, as Giada above.

    Of course it’s not that it’s not a bonus to go someplace nice but it’s not necessary šŸ˜€

    Congrats on your release Maggie!!

    I do like to celebrate the special occasions in my life but I do it in a small way. With tea and cakes, family and friends. Talking and laughing together. Real simple but very nice. I also like to take loads of pictures.

    Congrats, Maggie!

    I celebrate with food! Whenever something great has happened or I want to share the good mojo in my life I gather loved ones and eat! Usually something sweet and chocolate!

    Congrats on Your Big Day Maggie!

    I can only imagine what it feels like to see Your book on the shelves, Your name on the front page! Celebrate!

    I usually celebrate with chocolate/ a glass of good wine/ good food… But last Saturday I celebrated with real French Champagne. Why? I was al last able to fly from Rome to Northern-Europe. I was stuck up in Rome because of Iceland-volcano for five days. It was heavenly to come home.

    Congrats once again, Maggie! If I have time after kiddo’s volleyball game tonight, I’m going to go book hunting.

    I celebrated graduating college last year with all my friends at the RWA National conference in DC. It was last minute and low key, but I was so flattered that so many made the time to come by and hang out. Made me feel kind of special. šŸ™‚

    Thanks everyone! It still does not seem quite real, tho Barnes and Noble delivered my books on the front porch today. Yes, I ordered my own books, the better to give them away. šŸ™‚

    Maggie, it’s real…. you’re a star! I can’t believe you had to purchase your own books… I thought authors get tons from the publisher! Thank you for being so nice.

    etirv, oh, I got 2 huges boxes of books from my publisher, but I wanted to make sure I had enough for promo stuff and my family and friends. šŸ™‚ And besides, it was kind of fun ordering it.
