Launching a debut novel has to be one of the most exciting things to happen for an author. The culmination of hours of work, stress, rejection, jubilation. And I get to do it twice!
I self published On Grace last summer and wrote about it in a blog post called Happy Book Birthday. What a wonderful experience that was: book signings, press coverage, blogger reviews, and more (I wrote about all that in You Want My What?). But then, and, yes, I wrote about this too in From Self-Published to PUBLISHED, I got picked up by a publisher: SparkPress! And we set a date for the relaunch: April 8. That seemed like a long way away. But now it’s here. And there’s lots going on!
DIVAMOMS BOOK CLUB EVENT
Please join me on Tuesday, April 8 (Launch Day!), for a fun and pampering night at Dasha Wellness in NYC to celebrate the launch of On Grace. This is a free event and includes mini-massages, cocktails, treats, book sales, a signing and a reading. Space is limited, and the first 100 people to RSVP will be entered into a drawing to win the Ultimate Spa Package from Dasha. More info here.
My publisher SparkPress is giving away 10 autographed copies of On Grace on Goodreads. The giveaway ends on April 7 and is limited to US entries only. To enter, visit the Goodreads Giveaway page (and be sure to add On Grace to your “Want to Read” list).
Stay tuned for an exciting giveaway (iPad Mini anyone!?!) that will start on my site next week.
I am blown away by the list of bloggers who will be reviewing On Grace in the coming weeks. Stay tuned for that, too.
I’ll still be your best friend if you don’t, but if you do any of the following, we can be blood sisters, too:
**LIKE my author page on Facebook.
**FOLLOW me on Twitter.
**SHARE news about On Grace on social media (and tag me so I can thank you).
**And most of all, please PRE-ORDER On Grace for yourself and all your friends on Amazon and post a review (5 stars are all the rage) on launch day, April 8!
More to come. And be sure to check out a new interview on THE BALANCE PROJECT this Friday!
