Look what I came home to!
Today is the official launch day of this beautiful Berkley edition of FINDING FRASER! And to add to the excitement, the story has been selected as a Fresh Pick on the FreshFiction.com blog. Hooray! Here’s what they have to say:
The Fresh Pick is chosen by a group of readers and is never a purchased advertisement or promotion. We’ve picked this book because it appeals to us and we like to share our diverse tastes in reading and hope you’ll give it a try.
Thank you FreshFiction.com!
And if that wasn’t enough, I can’t tell you how excited I am about the rest of the week. It’s back on the road for me — this time heading south.
To help me launch this baby into the world, the incomparable Diana Gabaldon is going to host me at a signing at the Poisoned Pen in Scottsdale, Arizona on Thursday, May 5th. If you’d like to order a copy of the book signed by both the author [me] and Herself [Diana, of course], click HERE to go to the Poisoned Pen ordering system, and they’ll take all your particulars, and send it off to you as soon as it’s signed.
I was chatting by email with one of the booksellers today, and he tells me that I have a ton of books to sign in preparation for the event, but there is still time to order yours!
On the weekend, I’ll be one of the hosts at the Whisky Library event in North Vancouver, toasting a selection of fine whiskies, and reading a naughty little scene from Finding Fraser. It’s a fundraiser toward the purchase of books and furnishings for the children’s library, so if the idea of a whisky tasting for a good cause sounds appealing, click HERE for more info!
Now — remember that box of books from the very top of this post? I think it’s time for a give-away. If you follow me on twitter, [as you surely must!] you’ll know that all week, a bunch of blogs have been doing both digital and paperback give-aways. I’m linking to all the ones I can find. But, I noticed that many of ’em are directed purely at an American audience. So, for today, if you say “I’d like to win a copy of #FindingFraser” on FB or Twitter or Instagram, and link, share or retweet this post, I’ll put your name in the draw for a signed copy, personalized however you’d like. I’ll give away one book for each platform, and all to International [outside of USA] readers.
The three winners to be announced Wednesday May 4th, sometime before midnight!
There are a few other VERY cool surprises coming up over the next few days — stay tuned, because [as always] there will be…
