Book Event: Opal Book Release Party Recap + Giveaway



Hi everyone! So this Saturday that just past was the celebration for the Opal Book Release with Jennifer L. Armentrout and Pepe Toth a.k.a. "Daemon Black". The event was held at Barnes & Noble in Humble, TX. Along with Jennifer and Pepe, a few staff members from Entangled Publishing also came to the event: Liz Pelletier, Stacey Morgan and Stacey O’Neale. The event was a great turn out. There were over 100 fans in attendance and a handful of authors also came out to support and meet Jennifer. 

Before the event began Jennifer was treated to a surprise which was The City of Humble, TX gave a proclamation that December 15th would be Jennifer L. Armentrout day in Humble, TX. Jennifer was excited to receive this honor. Then around 7pm the event began. Jennifer and Pepe answered question for over an hour than afterwards signed books followed by pictures. During the signing, Entangled Publishing held a raffle. Quite a few fans won some great items. Even I won a really nice bookmark. 

Trini from A Book Lovers-Review and I were so pleased with how everything turned out. Over 250 books were sold plus Entangled Publishing handed over 100 books to the first 100 and book bloggers. After the event we ahead to dinner for a after party mingle. That was a nice turn out as well. Trini and I handed the gifts we got for Jennifer and Pepe there.

So below you will see slideshow of the pictures from the event (100 pictures in slideshow) and a collage with a few favorites. I will also have all the pictures loaded in the blog's Facebook page


Trini and I would love to just say THANK YOU to everyone: Jennifer, Pepe, Liz, Stacey, Stacey and all the fans and authors that came out to the event. We know some of you came from far away and we are truly grateful for that. Until the next one!!!


Thanks to Entangled Publishing I have a few copies of Opal I can awarded from the party. These copies are NOT signed.
