And I'm not excited at all (insert sarcasm here).
I honestly don't remember writing The Leftover, but I do remember sitting on the bathroom counter at my parents' house (trying to find privacy for the conversation) talking to the owner of BQB Publishing. That's when my excitement grew as we chatted about the possibilities and the publishing process. The next day, I signed the contract and that was well over a year ago.
So now I'm thrilled to have the finished product officially OUT!!!
And I have plenty to tell you so buckle down. I'll try to be concise, but that's not my strong suit.
You have options if you get bored today. First, I have an online release party going HERE of my own. My girls get out of school early today so I don't expect to do much this afternoon/evening, but I'll post some tidbits and giveaways so check in from time to time!
I'll also be hosting a two hour party on the Red Coat PR Reader page from 11-1pm central time HERE so pop in and say hi there too!
And I'm getting roasted HERE, which should be fun!!!
What Can You Do?
If you'd like to support my authorship, there are several things you can do. First, if you haven't gotten the book yet, grab it!
If you pre-ordered it already, THANK YOU! You can still help by sharing the link on social media, emailing friends, whatever.
If you got a review copy, you can leave a review on amazon, barned and noble, goodreads, wherever you can. I want to rack up as many reviews as possible. It's important for visibility.
This is the first book I have that is easy to get into bookstores. So you can also visit your local Barnes and Noble or other book stores and ASK FOR IT! And be sure to stop by the book signings I have set up. Check the schedule on my website to see what's close to you. Even if you have the book, don't leave me hanging alone. Come by!
I wrote "The Leftover" to prove to everyone everywhere that you (yes you!!!) are more capable of things than you think. Putting yourself into uncomfortable situations can surprise you, as it did my main character. Did she ever see herself on a reality show? A Survivor-like show, no less? Heavens no! But she ended up on one and it changed her life. You never know what life will bring. Let it! :)
Please let me know your thoughts on the book, if you have any questions about anything, if you have a book club, whatever. I'm here and I love email!
Hope to see you at the release parties AND book signings!!!
