Hello, October

My bookshelf, currently.

October has always been my favorite month. I love the crisp smell of fall and the changing leaves. I love the chill that hangs in the air and frolicking through Boston in outlandish costumes (and having it be moderately socially acceptable). This time last year, I was excitedly preparing for my upcoming wedding. This year, I find myself not only looking forward to my first anniversary with my husband, but I also find myself excitedly preparing for another big life milestone: the Rogue Elegance book launch.

It’s crazy to think that after so many years of working on this story, the journey is finally over. Sitting back and waiting to hear what others think has been such a weird, nerve-wracking experience for me thus far. The publishing and marketing world is like navigating foreign territory, and I’ve suddenly found myself up to my ears in “How-To for Dummies” books as I attempt to successfully make myself and my writing into a marketable commodity.

Henry is frightened by literature.

Still, I look forward to seeing what the upcoming year will bring. For those of you waiting for the kindle-ready version of Rogue Elegance–fear not! It will be available for download in the next week or two. I know the book is large enough to be a formidable murder weapon, and not everyone is looking to lug around a thesaurus sized monstrosity everywhere they go. For those of you still trying to figure out where to buy the hard copy, it can be found on Amazon through a quick search of “Rogue Elegance”. Otherwise, you don’t need to look any farther than this blog! There is a handy link right on the Purchase Your Copy page at the top navigation bar!

I look forward to celebrating with you all in just a few short weeks! Thanks for being so supportive and for coming out en mass to buy the book during the first week of the launch month. I’m blown away by how many copies the company has sold so far. They sent me a report of the September sales at the start of this week, and I almost fell over. I’m literally bursting with gratitude that I have such awesome family, friends and coworkers!

Thanks for being spectacular and, as always, thanks for reading!


PS. Here is Henry as a shark, for your enjoyment. Because why not?
