I hope you enjoy your launch party! I was at a Barnes & Noble in Durham, NC earlier, and when the man ringing me up saw I was buying your book, he got very excited and said he'd just finished it, and really enjoyed it. He's name's John, and he said you'd worked there before going to the UK for your degree. You're clearly remembered fondly, and his enthusiasm's pushed If We Were Villains to the top of my tbr pile. : )
John is a lovely, lovely man who was my manager when I used to work there! It’s going to be surreal to go back and actually do an event in the B&N where I used to work, but I’m so excited for it. It’ll be so wonderful to see all my former colleagues again. I’ll have to thank John for talking it up!
