Heavens, I’ve been writing so many posts for other blogs, I almost forgot about my own!
Today is the day, at long last, when my debut YA thriller hits shelves. I mean bookstore shelves. It hit my shelves about six weeks ago.
See this? Rather paranoia-inducing, isn’t it? But in the best possible way, of course!
In the past week or so I’ve signed 100-plus copies of TABULA RASA for giveaway contests, and I’m only just realizing that I’ve got a really long-ass name. Yikes. I thought about coming up with a shortened signature, and I may yet have to resort to one but for now, I’m signing my full dang name.
And because my book features conspiratorial elements, here’s a super special offer for my devoted blog-readers only. If you’d like to see a close-up version of my long-ass name, head over to my contact page and shoot me an email with your mailing address. I’ll send you a few swaggy baubles to thrill and delight you!
Thank you to all of you who’ve read and followed the Story Behind My Story all these years. I started my original blog in October, 2009, and there were so many dark and discouraging days along the road to publication. Believe me when I say that sometimes the only thing that kept me going was a kind comment on one of my blog posts. I’m so sad to see blogging dying out. I miss the community of writer-bloggers I met during what I guess was blogging’s golden era.
And to those of you who’ve already bought my book or will buy it, “THANK YOU!” doesn’t come close to covering it, but the words … they’re all I have. Thank you for reading mine.
