Don't ask me about my resolutions or goals or anything like that. I'm too focused on one thing...
The Secret Mistress Arrangement IS ON THE SHELVES!!!
Alas, my book is only on the shelves in the UK – which is very exciting to think about and contemplate, but lacks the joy of being able to go to the bookstore and see it myself (and I just can't justify a trip over right now, even if my book is on the shelves...).
Still, though, the thought of people wandering into a bookstore and picking up my book sends little giddy shivers down my spine. People are actually reading it! Paying money for it! Possibly recommending it to their friends! Okay, so the reading part does make me worry... what if they hate it?
Nope, not going there. I'm sticking with the SQUEEE-ness of it.
Because I can't be there in person to see my ink-and-paper baby, I need our overseas Honorary Playfriends to help me out. And I'm not above bribing people to do so.
I'm running a Spot the Book contest all through January – just go to your local bookstore, snap a picture of my book on the shelf (you holding my book is optional :-)) and send the photo to me at firstname.lastname@example.org. Be sure you tell me where you found it. On February 2, I'll randomly draw a name from all the photos submitted to receive an Amazon gift certificate. (Check my website for full details/rules.)
I've already received a couple of photos:
Spotted at Eason's bookstore in Ballymena, N. Ireland.
And at WH Smith in Norwich
Pardon me while I go squee!
P.S. I'm guest blogging today at The Wedding Belles. Please come by and say hi!
