Yes, that's a BRAINZ CAKE! There were even candles and a mash-up version of "Happy BRAINZ DAY... to Daddy!" I'm not gonna lie, this surprise party brought tears to my eyes. Writing can be a lonely business, but needless to say, I'm one of the lucky ones!
Special thanks to my beautiful wife, for putting the whole thing together. And, yes, that's a harmonica in my daughter's hands. She also came up with her first blurb: "My daddy writes AWESOME books!"
