In the last year or so, I've become good friends with Aprilynne Pike, about to make her debut TOMORROW. She got a very sweet deal for this series, and Harper Collins is promoting it big time.
It's not every author who gets this kind of backing: prepub tour, release tour, floor displays in all the major bookstores, a cover quote from Stephenie Meyer, etc. (If you don't know who Stephenie Meyer is, well, she's this lady who wrote a book about some town called... Spoons I think? And it has a lot of... what, vikings? No, vampires. Yeah, vampires. I think.)
Anyway, I just wanted to give a shout out for Aprilynne. She's an incredible writer and you're going to be hearing about this series quite a bit. I'm really rooting for her and you guys should totally check out her book. Did I mention it comes out TOMORROW?
You may be lucky enough to live in a place she's coming to visit on tour. To read about her book, see her schedule, check out her blog, etc., go to her website: CLICK HERE. You won't be sorry!
On another note, one week from today I'll be on my very own prepublicity tour!!! I'm getting very nervous. I mean, my hair! Whatever will I do with my hair? And should I get my nails done? What about my feet? Will these people be looking at my feet? Do they ever ask you to remove your shoes? And socks? Well, maybe they do. You never know.
Bah, have no fear. My wife plans to force me into a clothing store and I plan on wearing deoderant each and every day I'm gone. All will be well.
