What a sweet day

Cupcakes
I made these applesauce cupcakes (the recipe is in the back of the book):



and received these from my family:



because today is the official release day of this:



For a delicious blog post with lots of beautiful cupcakes and a very sweet review, head over to Jama's blog and tell her your favorite kind of cupcake for a chance to win one of two copies!!!

This day is a dream come true for me. I've dreamt of having a middle-grade novel on the shelves for a VERY long time. And the ten-year-old Lisa who loved to bake and dreamt of traveling, like Isabel (the main character), is pretty darn happy today too.

Sweet dreams are made of this... (Sorry, couldn't help myself. That Eurythmics song popped into my head when I was reading this entry.)

Congratulations, Lisa. I hope your book release day is all you dreamed it to be.

Congratulations! I am looking forward to reading your novel and eating lots of cupcakes (thanks to these glorious photos of yours). I believe I'll multi-task and do both simultaneously.

OMG!! They both look delicious. Life has been so crazy around here so I haven't been able to congratulate you properly (or in a timely fashion!) but CONGRATS! Eliza's birthday is at the beginning of April and I'm going to get her this! We're still working out the details of her party theme but now I'm thinking....cupcake party!!

Lisa... I went to my independent bookstore and asked for your book. I said, 'it came out yesterday." she said, "I know, we sold out. I can order you one." Pretty Cool!

Are you serious??? I think maybe she just couldn't find it! ha!! Thanks for trying, Laura, and for sharing, and excuse my skepticism!!! :)
