We watched the book trailer and then I read poems from the book. Music was provided by Kyle Ruggles dressed as Schroeder. His girlfriend came as Lucy. Kyle was the one who created the music for the book trailer. In this photo he was joined by Josh to sing the theme song from "The Addams Family." Josh is the talented young man who produced the book trailer. He's dressed as Calvin above. His girlfriend came as Hobbes.
There was also a Raven Trivia Challenge. People searched the bookstore looking for the eight ravens hidden among the shelves. Each raven had a yellow card that displayed a bit of raven trivia. They answered the questions and then turned in their answers to be part of a drawing.
Sherri Erler, Debi Hennigan, and Shauna Mellady displayed their fabulous jewelry. Many of the pieces were created specifically for the book launch. Winners of the costume contest and Raven Trivia Challenge each got to pick a piece of jewelry to take home. Check out the photos on the GHOST TOUR page to see closeups of their handiwork. If you see anything you'd like to buy you can contact Sherri here.
And finally, no book launch would be complete without a cake. Thanks again to everyone who came out for the event. For those of you who weren't able to make it, there are autographed copies of FORGET ME NOT at Alamosa Books.
