First of all, I know I’ve been slacking on our regular blog features, but a book launch always throws me for a loop, and A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS releases in exactly EIGHT DAYS. I promise once April comes, we’ll start getting back to normal!
In the meantime, there are a couple of things I want to tell you guys;
1. I’ll be at the Houston TeenBookCon on April 14th in Houston, Texas!! WOOT! I’m unbelievably excited about this, both because I’ve heard such good things about the HTBC and because my Texas readers have been begging me to come to Texas for YEARS and now I can finally meet them all. SO HAPPY about this.
2. I’ll be appearing at Oblong Books in Rhinebeck, NY in a joint signing with Jaclyn Delorme, author of Magic Under Glass and Magic Under Stone, on Sunday, April 22nd at 4pm as part of Oblong’s Hudson Valley YA Society. Everyone is welcome to attend and I really hope I’ll meet some of you NY, NJ, CT, MA peeps! Jackie and I have an interesting pre-publication history. and I’m looking forward to recounting the story. Plus, the people at Oblong are just awesome.
3. I’ll be appearing at YA Fest2012 in Easton, PA on Saturday August 4th from 11am – 3pm. Tons of amazing authors will be there and I know we’re going to have a blast. I hope you’ll join us!
I’ll be updating my Appearances Page over the next few days, but for now, that’s what’s on tap in the way of events.
But wait! There’s more!
4. In case you missed it, A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS was part of a feature on angel books in USA Today earlier this week. I have to admit, I was pretty psyched!
5. The Be Tempted Ipad Giveaway is in full swing through the end of the month, with the Grand Prize recently upgraded to a NEW Ipad. We have a ton of entries, so try to do as many of the things as possible to boost your total number. Even though we use the Random Number Generator to choose winners, last year the Grand Prize winner (of an Ipod Touch) also had the most entries. It just ups your odds of winning and there are lots of ways to enter. And the Ipad is just the beginning, there are more great prizes including Victoria’s Secret body care items, gift cards, jewelry, signed books, and MOAR.
6. If you missed last week’s Temptation Thursday, you can meet Anna and read this week’s free excerpt of A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS here.
7. In case you missed the premier of the trailer for A TEMPTATION OF ANGELS (featuring one of Kenneth’s pieces), I’m sharing it again for your viewing pleasure;
8. Last but most certainly not least, Kenneth’s original score for TEMPTATION comes out this Friday. And you guys… it’s SO INCREDIBLE. I can’t wait for you to hear what he’s done.
