Finale Launch | Roseville, CA

finale stephanie garber book launch

First and foremost -- happy book birthday to Finale, which released yesterday!

Stephanie Garber launched her Finale tour at the Barnes & Noble in town in Roseville yesterday, stocked with a dessert bar that I overheard by someone who works with Stephanie's dad that the treats were homemade by an aunt of hers. It was difficult to not eat all of the cookies and the cookies n cream dessert from the three-layer tier (if you know me, you know that cookies n cream anything is my weakness). They were so delicious. It was amazing to see so many readers come by and support Stephanie. Adrienne Young (Sky in the Deep) was there moderating.

Stephanie kicked off the launch with a (non-spoilery) talk about Finale, then went into Q&A's with fans from the audience, a quick-fire game of this or that. On the topic of villains, Stephanie said her inspiration for her villains derived from Damon Salvatore from The Vampire Diaries, as well as Klaus Mikaelson! She also prefers enemies to lovers over the friends to lovers trope. Out of all of her book boyfriends from her books, Stephanie would choose to hang out with Julian in a zombie apocalypse, to no one's surprise. ;-) To top it off, she threw a trivia question for one lucky winner in the audience to win an advanced readers copy of Adrienne Young's upcoming novel The Girl the Sea Gave Back. It was a fun launch and I can't wait to see what Stephanie has in store next after Finale.
