Far From Here Launch Day!
Happy release day, everyone!
I’m so excited that it’s finally here! I know I’ve already confessed that launch day is usually a bit anticlimactic, but there’s a lot going on today. First of all, I’m touring the US via radio waves all day. You can check out my schedule on yesterday’s Radio Tour post. I’d love it if you would tune in! Also, in celebration of the release of Far From Here, we’re giving books away! (You can read all about it in my Celebrate Books Party post.) Pick an oldie but goodie off your shelf and surprise someone who could use a little pick-me-up. Or, what better day to purchase a copy of Far From Here? I’m going to be giving books away to the Christ Our Hope orphanage in Monrovia, Liberia based on how high the Amazon ranking for Far From Here climbs. If you are participating in the book giveaway in any capacity, please leave a comment below and tell me what you’re doing! I’ll let my random number generator pick THREE winners and send off signed copies of Far From Here as a way to say “thank you” for being a book lover.
I can’t stick around long today, but I do want to leave you with a little “gift.” A few months ago I claimed that I didn’t “get” Pinterest… But that has, uh, changed. Just a smidge. I’m not addicted or anything. Much. Anyway, one of the things that regularly pops up on Pinterest that never fails to make me giggle is the Ryan Gosling spoofs. You’ve seen them, haven’t you? They always start with “Hey, girl…” and usually go on to flatter some of the more prudish feminine traits (wearing sweatpants, knitting, lounging in your pajamas all day, etc.). They absolutely crack me up. Anyway, thought I’d try my hand at it for the release of Far From Here! I can almost pretend that Ryan Gosling endorsed my book. 😉
Have a great day, everyone! Don’t forget to leave a comment about your book giveaway adventures!
