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 you don’t live local to me and missed out on all the launch day fun (which actually happened a few days after the actual launch day, because timeliness ain’t our thing around here), there’s a photo gallery on my other website, the Professional Author one, which you can access here. I’ll let you figure out which pictures have me crying with joy in them (note: all of them).
That’s all! I have to go pick up my darling children from school right now, but I just wanted to let you know. It’s a happy day. It’s a good memory of one of the absolute best times of my life. And I wanted to share it with you, just a little bit, because I’ve been sharing a little bit with you all along, after all.It only seems right.
