Gang, we are t-minus 29 days until LOVE GAME is released into the wild, and boy-howdy things are happening. Big things. Wow things.
In case you have somehow managed to miss my spastic whooping, this happened this week:
Yes, Publishers Weekly gave my book a STARRED review! If you want to read the whole thing, you can find it here.
I admit I cried a little when I read it. Not just because they liked my book, but because they got it. I wanted to write a book where two stubborn, strong-willed people fell in love and neither of them had to make themselves less so they could have more of a relationship.
I’m particularly proud that they caught the strong feminist streak that bonds the three female friends in the book.
Feminist is a word I had to grow into, but now I find it fits me like a glove. Maybe that’s one of the perks of becoming a woman of a certain age. I am so over apologizing for being awesome. Like Kate, Millie, and Avery, I am a strong, accomplished woman with opinions that matter, and a voice that carries. I no longer feel the need to explain or tone down my feminist tendencies.
I just hope the world can handle us.
Both LOVE GAME and PLAY FOR KEEPS are available for pre-order at every outlet imaginable (Target! Walmart!) and will be in stores February 6th and April 3rd. Be watching for a call to action here.
Avery’s story, DOUBLE PLAY, is shaping up nicely!
I’ve started reading for BINGO, have you?
I admit I’m not being very strategic, but since I can’t give myself a prize, I figure I can flit around a bit.
How about you? How is your new year going thus far?
