616. Drum Roll, Please (book party details)

Guess what? Tonight’s an exciting night! Okay, it is New Year’s Eve and all, but I am talking about my upcoming book signing party (don’t worry, it’s not tonight—you did not inadvertently miss it). I was going to wait until tomorrow to post the information, but alas I’m an Instant-gratification girl in a Can-this-DMV-line-move-any-slower world. So here goes:

YOU are cordially invited to my very first official book launch and signing party for my newly released instant classic “Mom’s Had A Rough Day,” which debuted at #8 on the NY Times best seller list!  (okay, I kind of made up that last part)

The details:
  • When: Saturday, January 21
  • Time: 7 PM
  • Where: just outside of Washington, D.C. at an amazing book store called
  • One More Page Books, 2200 N. Westmoreland St, Arlington, VA 22213
If you live anywhere in the vicinity, please come to the party! I would love to meet you! Obviously, you can buy the book at the party, but if you cannot wait, it is available right now on Amazon (click the button over on the right side of my blog). You can bring your copy along for me to sign (so it will become a valuable collector’s item, worth probably millions).

Also, it you do not want to buy the book but just want to meet me in person, that’s totally fine, too. I would love to meet you!  And children are welcome to come!

Here is the book store's phone number: 703-300-9746.  Feel free to call them in advance to RSVP yes and let them know you plan to attend the event. (Tell them MOV/ Julie Harrison sent you and that you follow my blog.)

So buy that plane ticket, book the train reservation, ready the helicopter, whatever it takes!  Please join us. 

Thank you to everyone who helped make this book a reality, thank you to my loyal readers, and thank you to One More Page for hosting the event. I haven’t felt this excited since Target started stocking my favorite European chocolate right next to the check-out lane.

When you write a comment, it makes me feel like I won the lottery or at the very least like I ate an ice-cream sundae. (This has nothing to do with the fact that I did just eat an ice-cream sundae.)
