It's POP day!! Pop the cork with me darlings!! Doubtless by now you've been inundated with bulletins from me -- LOL -- MySpace, my newsletter, etc. -- but thanks so much for all the enthusiasm, support, early feedback, help spreading the word, early sighting reports, and etc. Cross your fingers it does well, and buy lots of copies! LOL. So I just wanted to drop in and say -- Yay!!!!! -- hope you're doing great! And visit me today at Southern Sunshine. A signed book is up for grabs. We'll have a celebration of some sort after I turn DOD in!!
I also wanted to mention something else: Patry Francis's debut novel THE LIAR'S DIARY came out in hardcover from Dutton last spring. The trade paper release is today, but a few weeks ago, Patry was diagnosed with an aggressive form of cancer. She's had several surgeries, and her prognosis is good. Buthat Patry won't have much energy for promoting, so authors all over are helping her to get the word out.
'THE LIAR'S DIARY blog day' is today—take a look at Patry's website. In support of Patry Francis, Penguin Group USA is offering 15% off the paperback edition of The Liar's Diary when purchased online from the the Penguin website until 2/15/2008. On the shopping cart page, enter PATRY in the 'coupon code' field and click 'update cart' to activate it. Let's all send our thoughts and prayers to her!
Tell me how you are here, too, if you can. Hope all is well for you! xo for now....julie
