For It’s a Jolly Good Fellow

Okay: I normally don’t post about Book Things here on the ol’ blog, but…you guys. That book that I started so long ago? The book that journeyed through billion revisions and a pregnancy and birth of a baby boy and a wonderful agent and a house move and little to no sleep on its way to actual, real life publication? That book just celebrated (well, we’re celebrating it, anyway!) it’s birthday. It’s a year old, today.I know. I can’t believe it either. (And yes. I AM working on the second one. It’s a slow process, okay?) In the spirit of celebration, I’m hosting a giveaway on my Facebook author page. It’s easy to enter, and I’ll send one winner a signed copy of All the Difference, a cute, roomy tote bag, plus a copy of my friend Kristin Contino’s The Legacy of Us, partly because it’s also set in Philadelphia and partly because Kristin’s writing is a hoot. Sounds fun, right? If you’d like to enter, just go here. If…

We Interrupt This Broadcast For a Little Self-Promotion

Soooooo. I have a book coming out. Most of you who’ve been with One Vignette from the beginning know this already–you’ve actually followed my journey from the time I got brave enough to tell you about it to now. Thank you, thank you for that. And I happen to have a couple of advanced reading copies of said book (it’s called All the Difference in case you’re just tuning in, and will be officially published into the Great North America by Berkley Books on September 1st. See also: AAAAAAAHHHH!). These advanced copies, or ARCs, are just hanging out right now in my office/artwork-dumping-ground, wishing for a home. I’m giving most away on Goodreads this month (go check it out if you’d like!), but I saved one for you. Do you want it? It’s not the pretty version, but it’s the earliest version, which is kind of fun. All you have to do to enter to win the signed ARC is this: “like” my Facebook author page, then sign up for my book club on my author site…

Just to Let You Know

Hi, everyone! I’ve been debating how to balance One Vignette with my author site, leahfergusonauthor.com. I want to keep my professional site, well, professional, of course, but since so many of you have been rooting for the writing stuff just as much as you want to hear about how my kid fell down the stairs and I refused to show you photos of his black eye (you did, right, want to know about that?), I figured that I could do this: When I blog about writing, I’ll mostly keep those posts on Leah Ferguson, Author. But I’ll let you know that a new post went up by popping onto here and giving you a link. How does that sound? That way I’m not littering your morning inbox with articles about me having dinner with my agent and driving her all around downtown Lancaster (SO many potholes when you keep getting lost in alleys…), when all you might want is a funny story about how Quinn says she wants to be a police officer when she grows up, but only a girl one. But if you want to read the new…
