Cheekychook, do it!

Maybegenius, that picture is hilarious! One of my cats is obsessed with the dryer. Maybe she's just training to be an astronaut.

Okay, so this is EXTREMELY less awesome than Robin's son, especially since he WASN'T EVEN THERE, but still kind of cool:

It's the first time I've ever met up with an online writer friend in real life, and what better excuse than the release of Jacob Wonderbar?

I tried to get a photo with my cats, but they didn't seem too excited about it. They obviously have bad taste in books.

Congrats again, Nathan!! The book looks awesome and I can't wait to read it! (By the way, this is part of my 'writing inspiration' board that's next to my desk. It has quotes to help motivate me to write, and the one on the index card to the left is from your blog, Nathan! You really have done a lot for so many of us, we're proud to support you and your book! Thanks!)

It's obvious, Sommer. Jacob repels water! But Nathan, don't fire any more rockets at Omaha, Nebraska. The USAF might misunderstand and fire back!

Great shot of your son, Robin! Great pics, everybody! Books and cake and cats, what's not to love?

Oh, MAN!

You guys are good!

Congrats, Nathan! If the world was smaller or travel instantaneous, we'd all be there clutching our copies and dutifully standing in line for an autograph. Really, you've done so much for us, this Forum Party (with all the trimmings!) is the least we could do.

Hey Nathan,

The next time Jacob breaks the internet with his Giant Cyber Kapow, can you take down Wordpress and Wikipedia too? I have a WIP to finish.

Thanks,

Dave

Robin, your son is gorgeous! He's going to be fighting them off. :)

Cookie - did you MAKE Those? They are amazing. And they look totally delicious.

So, I wish I could take credit for the cupcakes, but I'm afraid I can't. I'm not even sure how to send cupcakes to someone! Maybe someone can tell me.

Sommer, was that your idea? I hope you or whoever of you sent those stand up and take credit, because that was just the sweetest thing. What a wonderful and heartwarming idea. :)
