Mistwood Release Party

In the midst of everything else going on, I wanted to make sure to boost the signal on the following:

Our good friend Leah Cypess has just seen her first book, the YA fantasy novel Mistwood, released by Greenwillow Books/HarperCollins. There's going to be a book launch party this Sunday, May 2nd, from 2 pm - 4 pm at the Young Israel of Brookline in Brookline, MA. Books will be made available for sale by Brookline Booksmith.

Nomi and I plan to buy at least three copies - one for us, and one each for Muffin and Squeaker, as Leah is poised to become the next J.K. Rowling and buying these books now will help us put them through college in the future. :-)

Seriously, though, Mistwood has received some excellent reviews, and we're looking forward to getting our hands on it this weekend. If you want to experience the joy of an author's first book launch party, stop on by.


N.B.: Leah was featured last week in John Scalzi’s The Big Idea blog feature category thingie.
I saw!
Is she married to Aaron Cypess?
But of course!
And there's even a kindle version, which is awesome!

harder to autograph
Undoubtedly. But given I am not in the vicinity to purchase a paper copy, never mind get an autograph, also not really an issue for me...
If you want a signed copy, you could probably order one from Brookline Booksmith...
So, books will be on sale at the launch party, thanks to Booksmith?
Exactly. They'll be taking cash and checks, though, not credit cards. So I purchased mine from the store yesterday, although they had to go in back to get me an as yet unsigned copy.
Oh! I shall have to make sure to mention it to the housemates - some of us read that. It's delightful!

(I have a small problem with the cover font, because the final D looks like an upside-down G and so I've been reading the title "MistGoom for several weeks, which doesn't make sense. But my... spacial things? think that D is a G, and so the second half of the title MUST be upside-down, and processes it as one word read outsides to in, rather than left to right.)

(It's a very small problem, really)
Read it already? That was fast!
