It's officially Gemini season, so watch out! For my 50th birthday (which I'm celebrating this year because last year--when I actually turned 50--my plans got cancelled) I'm launching a book!
There are less than two weeks until the official launch (June 8th) of my first novel, Doubting Thomas! I've been getting a few questions, and I'll answer them here:
Q: I ordered the book. When will I get it?
It depends on where you ordered it. Friends who've received the book early are already sending photos. Others will get it around the official launch date, June 8th. Once you receive it, send me a pic of you and the book against your fave backdrop.
Q: I haven't yet ordered it. Where's the best place to buy the book?
A: Wherever you want. It's a win to buy it from your favorite indie bookstore OR from my publisher who has released the E-book version early--AVAILABLE NOW. If you order the paperback from Bywater/Amble, they'll send you a signed copy. The Booksmith and Powell's are planning on sending signed copies, too. Amazon boosts ratings, which helps in ways I don't understand. So it's all good. Thank you for asking.
Q: Are you having a party?
A: Yes. Stay tuned for in-person events related to Doubting Thomas. Meanwhile, I have two virtual events that mean a lot to me because I'll be in conversation with two writers I really love: Paul Lisicky & T Kira Madden. Please register now.
Q: Can I help?
A: You already have. I can feel the support. For overachievers, you can 1) call or go by your fave indie bookstore, ask if they've ordered Doubting Thomas. If yes, say thank you. If no, ask if they will. 2) do the same at your library branch 3) If they have ordered it, say you know the author and ask if they'll feature it somehow, perhaps on the Pride Month table, local author's table, etc.
You can share about the book on social media with links to your fave place to purchase.
You can also follow me on Goodreads. Once you've read it, review it on Goodreads & Amazon.
Instagram is the place I have the easiest time updating. So if you're on it, please follow me. However haphazardly, I've been slowly telling the story behind each of my wonderful blurbs, which are all below.
