The week your book comes out is always crazy. This was without question the best book launch I've ever had.
On the actual publication day, I signed copies at Barnes and Nobles.
The day after, the book was officially launched with a talk at Shakespeare and Company Bookstore (where I used to work for the grand salary of $4.25 an hour).
And the next day, I had a great talk at the Astoria Bookshop with Radha Vatsal, author of the Kitty Weeks mystery series which is also set in 1910s New York. Were my mother alive, she would tell me I'm slouching.
