Ticketholders only were allowed on the patio from 3 PM to 6 PM. We picked up our books and gift bags at the patio entrance.

While a musician played and sang Irish music, we enjoyed drinks and dinner. Since Atticus always raves about the fish and chips at Rula Bula, naturally it was one of the three entrees available with a ticket. The other choices were Oberon's favorite bangers and mash or a chicken strawberry salad.

At one point during the party, Kevin took the stage to read the beginning of Tricked.
While we ate, Keven went around and talked to everyone, posing for pictures. (If you missed the release party, Kevin will be at the Velma Teague Library on May 19 at 2 p.m. to discuss and sign Tricked.) Two of our friends couldn't make it, so Kevin & I sent greetings to Terry and Chrisite.
Thanks to Kevin for posing for all the pictures!
We didn't buy just dinner for the ticket price. We also received a bag of swag, an autographed copy of Tricked, a poster from Atticus & Oberon's Sausage Fest, a bookmark, and a great glass with Oberon on it.
So, here's a toast to Kevin Hearne and Tricked, along with his characters, Atticus and Oberon. Good luck with Tricked, Kevin. Great release party!
