First, a couple of VERY important announcements:
#1: The Long and the Short of It is kicking off their one-year anniversary celebration, and they're giving away prizes EVERY SINGLE DAY. Go on over and visit, OK?
#2: My author friend Devon has her very first novella releasing with The Wild Rose Press today!Here are the cover and the trailer for Addicted:
And in other news, I was pleased with the way my New Hampshire mini-book tour turned out. At the Nichols Memorial Library on Thursday evening, I spoke to a very small group (5) but also sold 5 books, so that wasn't too bad. And I've decided that reading from your books is one of the best things you can do, to whet readers' appetities. I read 3-4 pages from each of my books, and when I stopped everyone sort of sighed and said, "Hey! You can't stop there!" I said, "Well, if you want to know what happens next..." ("buy the book"...in my head, of course...)
Here's a picture of the sign they had up outside the library:
And a picture of me signing a book for a fan :)
I also had the wonderful opportunity to have lunch with Marianne. We go way back (5-6 years or so, I think), and it's been wonderful to share the ups and downs of the publishing biz with her. We talked nonstop for 2+ hours, and of course it wasn't nearly enough time. But it was something :)
Here we are!
