Two J's Book Party and Too Many Cupcakes

Earlier this week Peeps and I went to our local independent bookstore, Vroman's in Pasadena.

Our friends Jordanna Freiberg and Jay Asher were there to read from their novels and sign books.

Look who we spotted when we first arrived!

That's Nicole White. She was the incredible Children's Book Maven for Vroman's (the spot is now taken by the amazing Kris Vreeland) and is now an incredible sales rep for Penguin Young Readers Group. Once a book person, always a book person.

It was fun to catch up with Jay, author of THIRTEEN REASONS WHY. Peepy wants to be a New York Times Bestselling Author like him, so she had a lot of questions . . .

When it was Jordanna's turn to read from her debut novel IN YOUR ROOM, Peep was right there with her to give her encouragement . . .

Jay was inspired by Peeps and helped Jordanna too . . .

This made LAYAs/audience members Ben Esch and Paula Yoo happy . . .

Peepy was thrilled because there were cupcakes. But she had too many and fell over . . .

Oh, and one last thing. Sometimes Ben dresses like this . . .

And Jay dresses like this (Jay is on the right) . . .

Just thought you'd like to know. Hee hee.
