EAT ME! (or, Vegan Cupcakes, part 2)

Here’s the cupcake menu I forgot at home:

I also wanted to tell you about the tote bags I screenprinted for the raffle, and the prizes inside. I ordered the bags from Enviro-tote, a wonderful company based in New Hampshire with excellent customer service. (Elizabeth orders her Squam tote bags from Enviro-tote, which is how I found them.) Made in the USA FTW! I wish I had gotten a pic of one of the bags during the event, but we’ll have to make do with this one:




(As I mentioned at the launch, I realized after I’d started transferring the design that it looks a lot like the Grub Street logo, but I figure it’s okay to use it for inspiration given that I’m not selling these bags. Also, I am pretty sure the red splotch on the Grub Street logo isn’t intended to remind you of a blood spatter!)

Along with Taza chocolate and a $25 gift card to Porter Square Books, each tote bag prize had its own theme. You got a ticket and dropped it in the tin of your choice.

The Frankenstein theme: a Penguin hardcover edition of the original novel, a signed copy of MarcyKate Connolly’s Monstrous, and a coupon good for a signed pre-order of Mackenzi Lee’s This Monstrous Thing.

The vegan theme: signed copies of Victoria Moran’s Main Street Vegan, Will Tuttle’s The World Peace Diet, and Colleen Patrick-Goudreau’s Color Me Vegan.

The Jim Henson theme: Imagination Illustrated and a signed copy of Elizabeth Hyde Stevens’s Make Art Make Money.

I have two more totes, so I might do another giveaway for all of you lovely people who couldn’t make it to the launch. Stay tuned!

p.s.—Jenny of Supernatural Snark “picked my brain in a non-cannibalistic way,” and the Q&A is up today.

    Those were the most beautiful non-professional cupcakes I’ve ever seen!

Hi! I'm Camille. I only write stories that could never ever happen in real life, though I do believe in real-life magic. If we were in the same room I'd fix you a cup of tea, but for now we'll have to settle for a virtual connection. I'm really glad you're here.
