Sweet and Sour Launch Party Details!

I’m so excited for the upcoming launch party for Sweet and Sour at Bank Square Books in Mystic CT on Saturday, Sept. 10 at 3 PM! It is particularly special to be celebrating at this bookstore because the book is set in Mystic, and that’s Bank Square Books on the cover of the book.

There will be a fun scavenger hunt (see below for details), a raffle for prizes, and delicious treats created by Nana’s Bakery and Pizza pastry chef Maddy Redden. I will be in conversation with dear friend and talented author, Jo Knowles where we will discuss friendships, both in our books and our own, and the writing process, plus Q&A with the audience. And of course there will be a book signing after.

But wait, there’s more! If you show my book to the Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream in downtown Mystic (just down the street from the bookstore), you will get 50% off any size cone on the day of my party. Why? Because while Bank Square Books is on the cover of the book, the Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream shop is on the back cover. Thank you Drawbridge Ice Cream! Thanks to fabulous illustrator Jacqueline Li and awesome cover designer Stephanie Yang!


Come a little early to the event so you can participate in a fun scavenger hunt! Take selfies (or photo of your friend/family member) at the following locations in downtown Mystic:

  • Mystic Drawbridge
  • Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream
  • Sift Bakery
  • Bank Square Books whale statue

Then, show the photos to me or a bookstore employee to receive all three character cards (while supplies last) and a raffle ticket.  A raffle for fun prizes will take place after the Q&A – winners must be present.

See you there!
A super BIG thank you to Bank Square Books!
