An Unforgettable Night at Third Place Books, Celebrating “Cyndere’s Midnight”

Here are a few moments from Thursday night’s crowded Cyndere’s Midnight release party. Over 100 people packed in for the reading. I read a chapter from the middle of the book called “The Watcher and the Ruined Farm,” talked about the profundity of “Beauty and the Beast,” and reminisced about my favorite monsters. It was an unforgettable evening, a wonderful time to chat with old friends and meet new friends. I was greatly encouraged by the enthusiasm.

    Look at that balding head in the lower-left corner of the first pic! I tell you, you’ve got some incredibly good-looking fans. :-)

    I let my son read the book first, so I’m still waiting to get to it. The sacrifices one makes for one’s children. Sigh.

    Still, we enjoyed the reading and the signing. Congrats!
