I've Officially Arrived!!

"If my doctor told me I had only six minutes to live, I wouldn’t brood. I’d type a little faster." ~Isaac Asimov

Well, the moment is here: I officially have a book for sale on Amazon. I know, I know, I was a published author the moment I sent off my signed contract for my first book...but somehow, seeing One Night in Boston available on the giant of all book sites makes me feel as though I've finally arrived in the published-author world!

So I have two requests for you today: first, if you're interested in purchasing One Night in Boston, go on over to Amazon and pre-order it. It's on super-sale right now, nearly $5.00 off the full price they'll charge in May, so you can't really lose. It's scheduled to be in print, and ship, on May 27. And second, if you've already read One Night in Boston, and you enjoyed it, could you leave me a (positive) rating/review on my Amazon page? I'm going to be working on updating it with some author info/a blog soon, but I figure the more activity it gets in the next 2 months, the better.

Finally, a big thanks to you, all my reading/writing/blogging chums (the lurkers too - I love that you're out there!) - I couldn't have gotten this far in my writing journey without every single one of you. ((((Cyber-hugs)))) !!

YAY, you!! Did you get tingles?

Preorder? But... but... I want an AUTOGRAPHED copy. *sigh**

Okay. I'll bite and preorder. Does that help you? And, I'll have Judy post part of the review LASR gave you, kay, along with one of my own at some point.

Feels good, doesn't it? I remember the little thrill I got in the pit of my stomach the first time I even realized I had an Amazon page! :)

Good for you, Allie. It looks great and I'll go back soon, to see the cover in place. Wishing you many sales!!

YEAH!!!! I put in my order! I can't lie. I'm with Marianne. I want it autographed. I guess I'll just keep an eye on your appearances and hopefully you'll come somewhere near me when I get the book. SO EXCITED for you!!! YEAH!!!!

First time on your blog. Thanks for the chance to win two historical novels. I am a big fan of historicals and stories set in the west. I wish you a Happy St. Patrick's Day from sunny Florida.

Oh, bottle that feeling and cherish it. Congrats on arriving for the second (or is it third/fourth including contracts) time.

Diane Craver said...

Congrats, Allie! I'm thrilled for you. Hope you sell lots of books. I haven't bought the ebook format yet, so will get the print.

Allie Boniface said...

Oh, wow...autographed copies. I hadn't even thought about that. You know, some authors do have autographed book plates that they mail out to readers, to put in the front of your book. Will have to think on this.

But M, you know we'll be seeing each other in person sometime before too long, right? I'm hoping, anyway :)

Well this IS exciting. A published daughter whose book is available on Amazon!
Of course I want autographed copies, but may just order some (friends, relatives, you know) on Amazon because I can! I do plan to see you in person for the autographs, after joining you back in NY State!

Love, Mom
