Release Week Goodies!

September 6, 2013 at 8:46 pm (A Wounded Name, Appearances) (, , , , )

With A Wounded Name out in the world now, I thought I’d do a round up of some of the fun release week stuff that’s out there!

First up, my friend Shae has an interview and ARC giveaway up. The giveaway is only for another day, but the interview is forever. Fun note: Shae went to college in my home town, so even though we met through blogging, we very likely encountered each other at the bookstore where I work. Probably multiple times. She asked some really fun questions, and I love her enthusiasm for books. Not just mine- books in general. Authors need (and love!) champions like her.

My friend and agent-mate Chelsea Pitcher, author of The S-Word, also has an interview up. The giveaway is closed, but she asked some seriously fantastic questions about feminism and Ophelia.

Speaking of feminism, Rhiannon over at Feminist Fiction also has an interview up, specifically asking about the difficulties in a soul-deep feminist telling the story of one of the most famously passive female characters of all time.

Finally, my publisher, Carolrhoda Lab (an imprint of Lerner Publishing) is doing a giveaway for two copies of the book! The Lab has an absolutely amazing fall list for you guys (and us- I am crazy looking forward to some of these titles!)

Until next time~

Signing for A Wounded Name

September 6, 2013 at 9:07 am (A Wounded Name, Appearances) (, , )

It’s here! It’s real and out there and holy wow!

And now, something I’ve been waiting for since I was about five years old, I get to announce my first signing in a bookstore!

On Saturday, 28 September, from 3-5 pm at the Gainesville, FL Barnes & Noble, I’ll be doing my first signing. If you’re in the area, you’re welcome to come down! It’s not a solid two-hour event, we purposefully created a window of time to accommodate busy schedules (and football). For Gator fans, don’t worry- it’s an away game that day.

We checked.

If you can’t get down there, well, we’ll miss you, but it doesn’t mean you can’t get signed books. If you call the store at 352-372-3535, you can actually purchase copies over the phone and get them sent out. If you want them just signed, we can do that, if you want them personalized, I can do that too, all you have to do is let the cashier know so they can write it out on the slip for me. If you have any questions, you can ask here, or you can also call the store to ask.

In the meantime, thank you all so much for all the good wishes and congratulations this past week. It’s been amazing and surreal and even though I’ve always wanted to get my books published, I think there was a part of me that was always convinced I’d never make it. Every now and then I have to go pet the cover to remind myself that it’s happened. It looks so pretty on the shelf!

Until next time~
(or until the signing!)
