Alex and the Ironic Gentleman out TODAY in the States!
Yes all, today is the official release date for Alex and the Ironic Gentleman in the U S of A!! So exciting!!! And of course I am totally in the wrong country for it! So again I request pictures of your glamorous selves and the American version of the book, and if anyone can get a shot of the book in store that would be awesome!!
Also, for those of you who have read the book, I am sending people over to Barnes and Noble and Amazon to write such oh so fabulous and glamorous reviews (cheeky of me, I know - I would do it myself but I think that might be a conflict of interest, besides I'm not so sure how generous I'd be towards myself . . . did you ever get those teachers in school who asked you to grade yourself? Man I hated those . . . anyway . . . ), so if you feel up to it, or are bored at work, or need an opportunity to procrastinate from writing . . . I would be so grateful! Thank you!
Ooh, even more exciting . . . I was also interviewed over at the Writerly Pause, so go check it out! We had such a good time, such a lovely group of people, and genuinely excited about books (some being authors in their own rights). Thanks guys so much again and, as Pat put it, you rock!
Now for a few more pictures of lovely readers!
First we have Heather [and her cat], a fellow Canadian and part of my original focus group when I needed help editing the book. Look how intensely she reads, it's because I am sure she is reading a very intense moment (not posing for the camera at all . . . ).
Then we fly across the ocean to Germany where I present to you all the first evidence that, yes, the German version of my book does exist in hard copy, and yes still has the world's best title. Holding said tome is Mira, the daughter of a friend of fellow AWer Sharon! Doesn't she look thrilled to be in possession of my book (and isn't she just adorable! And doesn't my book look HUGE in her hands?)!
I really love these pictures, so please keep them coming! And of course I won't post anything without your permission - but come on, who doesn't want the fame that comes with being featured on The Temp, The Actress, and The Writer? Exactly!
