Goodreads Giveaway Winners, The Juliet is Coming to Your Town!

Psyched that the Giveaway winners have been selected, and I’m eager to hit the books with my MAGIC GREEN PEN, and then hit to PO office to send those beauties out into the world. Where to? Well, 1143 people entered for the chance to win 1 of 10 signed copies, and there were 2 winners from Pennsylvania, and one each from Maryland, Colorado, California, Oklahoma, Connecticut, Michigan, Canada, and Northern England.

Congratulations to all the winners. I hope you enjoy the book!

Goodreads Giveaway:10 signed copies of The Juliet! Plus Laura’s Weird Day

The good news is that the Goodreads Giveaway for The Juliet launches today, and it’s going strong. I’ll be giving away 10 signed copies when the giveaway ends on May 2.

The weird news is that a Pileated Woodpecker dove into our car on the way to the cabin today–this was after we’d accidentally driven over a skunk carcass. Not sure if these are omens or just natural rites of spring, but when I got back online I discovered that Amazon has included a bacon recipe book among my titles:

Apparently it can take up to 3 days to get a book removed from your amazon bibliography, so in the meantime I’ll be contemplating what this could mean for may “brand.”

The Path might not be a path


Too many good things happening! 1) My former student/current friend Jonathan Harper‘s debut collection, Daydreamers, has been nominated for the Kirkus 2015 Fiction prize. Check out the full list of nominees here–it’s amazing. 2)ARCs of Art Taylor’s debut novel On The Road With Del & Louise roaming around in the wild, and you may be able to get your hands on one via a Goodreads giveaway that ends June 28.

On the horizon, we’re expecting Erin Fitzgerald’s novella, Tara Laskowski’s second collection, Steve Himmer’s third novel, and of course, my second. We all started this journey at different times, but it feels like we’re reaching important benchmarks together. This leads me to wonder if, as a writer, I haven’t been laboring under the wrong metaphor all this time–maybe this stuff is less path-oriented than event-oriented–like doomsday only way better–and we’re the best preppers.
