Party Pics!

I had a really fun book party last night at Butter (totally where Blair Waldorf eats) with Gamer Girl author Mari Mancusi, who rules. Here she is signing her book. Isn't she pretty in purple?marimancusi.jpg Also there (with me) were awesome authors Bennett Madison (The Lulu Dark mysteries) and Deborah Gregory (Cheetah Girls series and Catwalk). Melissa%20Walker%2C%20Bennett%20Madison%2C%20Deborah%20Gregory.jpg And Mari and I got to rub elbows with Scott Westerfeld (Uglies) and Diana Peterfreund (Rampant). They came with fellow fabulous authors Justline Larbalestier and Maureen Johnson. group%20shot.jpg And my ELLEgirls were there too! Here's me in the center of Linnea, Mariel, Erin and Marie.

Also, thanks to Butter, and to Clarins and Lierac for the gift bag contributions. We had a blast! PS-Something else to know about today: Flip cams going to non-profits so they can document the cool stuff they do (great idea!).
