The Wait Is Almost Over!

That's right. A little less than a week to go before the release of Breaking Dawn, the final installment in Stephenie Meyers' Twilight series. All of our questions are about to be answered and nobody will be getting much sleep before or after the book is released. While it's exciting, it's also sad that the tale of Bella, Edward and Jacob will be coming to an end. But you know what, I still can't wait for the book!

So, all over the country Twilighters will be having one huge party on August 1st. I hope everyone has a wonderful time and enjoys every minute of it. Live it up! Dress in costume and party until the break of dawn. Well, maybe not that long.

For those of you who will be attending our party, I thought I would give some details.

First of all, I would like to thank some of  the wonderful and talented YA authors who have provided us with various promo items to give away and raffle off to the fans. Thank you, thank you, thank you! You have really helped to make this night a special one and we will forever love and appreciate you for it. You know who you are, but here is the distinguished list for everyone else:

*throws kisses* We love you!

Now for the party. The official start time is 9:30 pm on Friday, August 1st. There will be live acoustic music to serenade you as you enter, beginning at around 9:15 (provided by me and my awesome friend Matt). All day long we will be ready to check you in and hand out wristbands for line placement, so that you feel free to enjoy the festivities and don't have to spend the entire night standing in a line. During the party there will be free cupcakes (yum!!) provided by Laura and there will also be vampire themed candy on sale. We will have strolling trivia throughout the night, so brush up on your Twilight knowledge! Join the vampire vs. werewolf debate, look into the future with "Alice", play a game of "Edward Says" and act out scenes from the books. You can even help design Bella's wedding dress (as pretty or as silly as you want) and have your picture taken as the possible bride to be. There will be lots of goodies handed out all night long and everything you participate in gets you more raffle tickets for prizes, to be drawn just before the book goes on sale at 12:01 am. All books will get a black or red ribbon bookmark, too.

*Come in costume or wear your own homemade Twilight themed t-shirt to the party. There will be great prizes for the best of both! If you have no costume or costume ideas, we will have vampire bite temporary tattoos and spray glitter available to help you out.

I hope everyone is is as excited as I am and is ready for a "Night With Bite"! 

Wherever you will be, have a great time and enjoy the book.
