The launch was a huge success—thank you to everyone who participated! We had a ton of fun at the party, and I just wanted to share a few of the details with you.
In case you missed it, you can now grab a copy of Tentacles and Teeth here.
I launched the book on March 28th, with a few online promotions and a Facebook Live video, which you can watch here.
Then on Saturday the 30th, I had a party at my house, were we ate monster-themed snacks, chatted about monsters, and acted out a short reading from the book. You can watch the live video of the reading here!
All in all, it was a wonderful event, and I am grateful for everyone who came and supported me throughout the process. Onto Book 2 (and 3 and 4!)!
If you want to stay more involved in the series as a whole, follow me on Patreon! It’s free—all you have to do is sign up and follow me, and I’ll be sharing monster sketches, fun facts, and whatever fun stuff I feel like. <3
A few notes about the party:
I tried to fit as many tentacles into my house as I could. I had a tentacles tablecloth, blanket, dishtowel, floor mat, wall decals, gummies, and a necklace, as well as a painting and some postcards and other imagery I made myself.
My friend sent me black roses on the day before—they looked AH-MAZING with everything else.
The marbled balloons popped really easily, and I may now be scarred for life.
I had a ton of fun making the food. Tentacles dirt cake, cookies with eyeballs, monster cupcakes—it was delicious. Thank goodness for candy eyeballs lol.
I had bowls of eyeballs around the house. I thought I had purchased some that were gumballs and some that were jawbreakers, but they all turned out to be gum. So now I have a lot of gum shaped like eyeballs in my house.
If you’re ever doing a monster-themed party, let me know. I have some stuff, haha.
