1. The Downside of Being Charlie Book Launch


Last Thursday I went to the book launch of THE DOWNSIDE OF BEING CHARLIE by Jenny Torres Sanchez. It was held at Barnes and Noble over by University of Central Florida and the place was packed.

Here's the blurb from Amazon:

Charlie is handed a crappy senior year. Despite losing thirty pounds over the summer, he still gets called “Chunks” Grisner. What’s worse, he has to share a locker with the biggest Lord of the Rings freak his school has ever seen. He also can’t figure out whether Charlotte VanderKleaton, the beautiful strawberry lip-glossed new girl, likes him the way he likes her. Oh, and then there’s his mom. She’s disappeared—again—and his dad won’t talk about it.

Somewhere between the madness, Charlie can at least find comfort in his one and only talent that just might get him out of this life-sucking place. But will he be able to hold his head above water in the meantime?


When I arrived, my writing buddies, Jess and Larissa, also drove up and the three of us joined the long line to get our autograph copy of THE DOWNSIDE OF BEING CHARLIE.


Unfortantly we arrived five minutes late so we missed Jenny's little speech on what inspired her to write the book. But we did get our autographed copies (they were going fast!) and we snuck in a picture with her.


We hung out at the store for a while and got to chat with some other writers from the area and talked about... writing. Of course.
