The day after

Posted on January 13th, 2010 by annakjarzab

So, it’s my birthday.

That’s right! I was published when I was twenty-five, and then I immediately turned twenty-six. Couldn’t’ve planned it better myself.

Last night was wonderful. Random House threw me and AUT a dinner at Irving Mill, which is a restaurant I’ve never been to but which was delightful. My publicist picked it because she said it looked like a California wine cellar, and it totally did. The atmosphere was gorgeous and the food was delicious. I met so many wonderful people from RH, not to mention booksellers and librarians. They were all so excited about AUT, which is awesome, because I am excited about it.

I feel really blessed to have so many people behind me, encouraging and supporting and working on behalf of my book. I said that over and over again last night, because it’s so true, and true of so very many people. I’m so grateful, more than I can adequately express. I think I said this a few times last night, that it still feels like a story I’m telling myself in my dorm room at Santa Clara; I can’t believe that the book is in stores and that strangers might actually read it. The concept is just too much for me.

And yet, it’s true. I have proof! Best birthday present EVER.
