I'm published!!! :D

I am featured as "mega-fan Britta Peterson who has thrown two Hogwarts-themed extravaganzas" in the "How to Host Your Own Harry Potter Party" chapter, including my photos and instructions for certain party props, recipes, and activities! My complimentary copy just arrived at my desk at work! This is so exciting to finally see it as a real live book I can hold in my hands! :D

The book is "A Muggle's Guide to the Wizarding World: Exploring the Harry Potter Universe" by ECW Press, author Fionna Boyle, AKA blackwiidow. She found my Hogwarts Celebration webpages online while researching her book, contacted me asking for permission to use my ideas, and we ended up with much in common, so we're now email & LiveJournal friends. I can't fly to Toronto mid-week to attend the book launch party, but maybe someday we can coordinate to meet in person! :)

The book was just released in Canada this past week, and it is available on, but I'm not sure if it's going to be stocked in California bookstores. I will be keeping my eyes out for it...I will take a photo of it on the shelf if I do see it! ;)
