Updates and Giveaway Contest!
Posted July 31, 2011on:
First: the giveaway contest! Hopelessly Devoted Bibliophile is giving away an ebook of Broken right now! RIGHT NOW. Here’s the contest; all you have to do is write a post about your favorite superhero and link it in the comments on their original contest post! And hey, you can let me know about it, too, right here.
This is tied in with a short guest piece about doing nothing in the summer that I did for them, which went up yesterday. I like the way that piece came out. Some guest posts that I do turn out really well, some kind of fall flat. This one was one of the good ones.
Plus, this weekend an ARC of the print version of Broken arrived in the mail from Candlemark & Gleam! Here I am gazing at it.
I knew I wanted to be an author when I was just a little kid. I always wanted to someday open up a package in the mail and withdraw a book with my name on it that I’d written. On Friday, that’s just what I did. I can’t describe the emotions I felt. I carried the book around with me for a few hours, reading little bits of it just so I could see my words on the page. It was amazing.
My publisher also sent along this mysterious, ominous package along with buttons, bookmarks and post cards. She loves extras. I mean, she really REALLY loves extras. Our preorder site has a ton of extras you can get with your preorder of Broken, including an exclusive short story, cool swag like what came in the mail, and more. I think the people who order the extras will love them!
Let’s see… what else? I finally did update the reviews list for Broken, which I haven’t done since March. There’s a lot more, now. Go check them out.
Lastly, I do not know what this is (except that it involves PONIES) but I can’t stop watching it.
