This is very exciting. I asked my fabulous publicist at Simon & Schuster if they would donate a few books for giveaways for my online and local launch parties, and look what they sent!!!
In case you have trouble counting, that's forty books. FORTY!!! And okay, a few of these are books I'm donating, but only a very small few. Simon and Schuster was so incredibly generous and I am very, very thankful.
I'm going to share a few closer-up pictures of the books and I want you to let me know if there are any ones in particular that you're excited to read. And if there are...let me know whether you'll be at only my blog tour launch party or only at my local launch party. I have not yet designated which books will be given away at each, and I want to give my blog readers first crack at directing me how to do this.
As you can see, there are several titles that I have more than one copy of.
Besides books, there will be many more prizes to be given away between September 1-14, including Losing Faith swag and books, packs of various bookmarks, and iTunes gift cards!
Writers looking for an agent...here's a heads-up: start working on your loglines for your finished novels now! My fabulous agent will also be giving away a ten-page critique for the best logline!
On the Class of 2k10 blog, I'll be giving away an awesome 2k10 gift pack (4 2k10 books plus a swag pack):
And if all of THAT is not enough to entice you to stick around for a couple of weeks...over on The Tenners site, I"ll also be giving away a Tenner gift pack:
That's EIGHT Tenner books, plus swag, in case you can't make it out in the picture. Many of the books I"m giving away are also signed copies.
What is not to love about this blog tour, right? It's easy...I'll leave the links here every day between September 1-14, and it will be as simple as visiting one of the participating blogs and commenting to enter (and the more blogs you visit, the more entries you get!) The only downside is that I may have to take another mortgage out on my home to pay for the postage. But I wanted to make my book launch as exciting for you as possible, as I am already way too excited for words!
So start telling your friends. Don't forget to tell me which of the above books you're excited to read. September 1st is the big day, and I hope you'll help me make it a celebration to remember!
