Are you ready to be blasted with a face full of happy? Might want to put on some shades, my friend, because the sunshine is coming.
First, I’m delighted to report that the Limited Edition hardcover of Beautiful Sorrows sold out! It’s shipping as far and wide as my parent’s house (thanks, Dad!), Ireland, and Macedonia. (Macedonia? Really? My friends live in the coolest places.) Thank you so much, everybody, for showing such interest in a project that means the world to me. This has been an amazingly difficult and emotional year, and working on this collection brought me so much joy. So the hardcover and pre-release copies sold out faster than I ever would have dreamed, but the regular release paperbacks and ebooks will be out very soon!
I’m also announcing my 60 day Beautiful Sorrows blog tour! Kicking off today, I’ll be invading the sites of friends and colleagues to pimp my wares and share experiences. You’ll see everything from interviews, my stiletto collection, and perhaps even a song or two. Keep an eye here for a list of where I’ll be hanging out next!
And perhaps the thing that I’m most pleased about is that Beautiful Sorrows received her very first review! The very charming, very awesome Brett Williams reviewed my book on Goodreads. It delights me. Thank you, Brett!
This is only the beginning. The blog tour commences and I’m throwing myself into finishing up Stormlight. I’d like to get it to my agent before the holidays. I’ll actually be implementing a new tool so we can get together and Word War on this site. Think you can out-write me? Think you’ll work harder on your project if you know that, at that very moment, I’m in the trenches with you? I write best with friends/colleagues/competition. I hope this will help motivate you, as well! And just in time for NaNoWriMo! More on that soon.
Happy day, everyone!
