Whew! Feeling so good about DIRTY LITTLE SECRETS' first day out in the world. So many great Facebook messages, emails, Tweets and Re-tweets - I'm over the moon. Several friends who hadn't read the finished copy went out, got one, read the whole thing and then stopped long enough to tell me about it (Julie!). And they all liked it (at least they said they did - they're nice that way).
So many great interviews and reviews went up yesterday I spent the entire time at my computer with a smile on my face. Not only did Melissa Walker manage to get our cover interview on the Barnes and Noble blog, but she also posted DLS as one of her three favorite things on the I Heart Daily blog. Saundra Mitchell did a fun 9 quick things with me on her blog, Cheryl Renee Herbsman let me do a guest blog on weather and writing, Jenn over at Books at Midnight posted a great interview and Zoe is doing a whole week on her blog and has not 1, not 2 but 4 copies of DLS to give away! (You should check it out in case you don't win the copy I have - I'll even send you a signed bookplate if you do.)
My fabbo neighbor Amy brought me flowers (how did she know I loved Gerbera daisies?) and then the kids and I went on a bookstalk-and-ice-cream mission. And wouldn't you know, we found one!
See it down there right near Alyson Noel? I didn't even turn it around, it was like that when we showed up.
A great start for my little book! Thanks so much for all of your support - it really means a lot.
On this date: 1959 - The day the music died: Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper are killed in a plane crash.
