The Class of 2K10 grad party for the Class of 2k9 concludes this week with one last multi-book giveaway. The contest will be open until midnight Saturday.
Now I have big news that I need you to help me spread. Shade will no longer be released on May 18 Its new release date is...
Two weeks sooner! Plans are for it to be available to be sold at the RT Booklovers Convention Book Fair (Columbus, OH, May 2), so that giant venue will be my first official signing as a YA author. YAY!
Of course, a lot of people already have it in their heads (and on their blogs/calendars) that it's coming out May 18. My fear (I have many fears, this is one of them) is that many readers won't look for it until May 18, by which point stores might have sold out and not reordered due to readers waiting until it's been out for two weeks to look for it (i.e., sales are meh). We want everyone to buy it as soon as it comes out (or sooner, via pre-order) so that it really makes a splash!
So if you see someone mention Shade with the old release date, do me a huuuuuge favor and politely let them know it's been moved up to...say it with me....
Thanks so much!
I'm now off to the internet-free coffee shop to start writing WVMP Book Four, tentatively titled Lust for Life. I'm due for some time off, but I figured I should use the momentum while I have it. Forward...write!
