Today is the OFFICIAL launch day for Bound!
Most of the partying is happening over on Facebook, where I’m giving away a e-books, a signed paperback prize pack, and a few other goodies. But because I like you guys, and just in case you can’t make it over there, we’re going to do an e-book giveaway JUST for you.
Let’s hope this works… I’ve never used Rafflecopter before.
The book is already getting great reviews, and people who are reading say they can’t put it down. I know I shouldn’t rely on external validation… but that feels pretty good!
The book and I are featured on a few blogs today, if you’d like to stop by and say hello. Colin F. Barnes asked me five rapid-fire questions that were a blast to answer. Joanne Guidoccio has my guest post on my author’s journey. And Jessica Minyard interviewed me about my writing process. All good fun– stop by and say “hello!” And there’s more to come…
Click below for the rafflecopter giveaway! I’ll announce the winner tomorrow.
Thank you to everyone who has already bought the book– I hope you enjoy it! For anyone who hasn’t seen it, here’s the info:
Welcome to Darmid, where magic is a sin, fairy tales are contraband, and the people live in fear of the Sorcerers on the other side of the mountains. Rowan Greenwood has everything she’s supposed to want from life—a good family, a bright future, and a proposal from a handsome and wealthy magic hunter. She knows she should be content with what she has. If only she could banish the idea that there’s more to life than marriage and children, or let go of the fascination with magic she’s been forced to suppress since childhood. When Rowan unknowingly saves the life of one of her people’s most feared enemies, that simple act of compassion rips her from her sheltered life and throws her into a world of magic that’s more beautiful, more seductive, and more dangerous than she ever could have imagined. Rowan might get everything she ever dreamed of—that is, if the one thing she’s always wanted doesn’t kill her first.

Congratulations – watching carefully to see how to do a launch day up with style.

Missed the part about the book I’m most looking forward to reading this summer – Hilary Mantel’s sequel to Wolf Hall – Bring up the Bodies.

I don’t know about style, but we sure are having fun! 😀

Woo hoo! Happy book launch! So glad I caught this.
Book I’m most looking forward to reading is tough so the answer is going to be arbitrary: Longbourn by Jo Baker, which I just found at the bookstore. Once I finish my book club’s selection, it will be time to see Pride & Prejudice in a whole new light. 🙂

Congrats on a great start to launching your book. As for what I’m looking forward to reading? I think it’s high time I get to reading “Doctor Sleep” by Stephen King.

SO GOOD! Enjoy!

Bit late to the party, but congrats on getting Bound out in the world 🙂 First thing I’ll be doing when I get home is reading the hell out of it. Uhm, you know what I mean. Although it does have to compete with the World Cup… hmmm… nah, still going to read it asap^^

Congrats! Your book cover looks AMAZING! I’m so sorry I’ve been away from the blogosphere from so long and just found out this news. I’m so happy for you. It looks so good and your numbers look fantastic on Amazon. I feel like I need to get up and do a happy dance or at least go read some Engrish or something!

Glad to see you back! And thanks! It’s been a bit crazy… 🙂
