I’m ready to hit the touring road, and am off to charming Auckland, New Zealand, where I will attend their Romance Writers’ Conference this week. And next Monday I will be back in the states, getting ready for my book launch party at Books Inc in Palo Alto, CA, and basking in the excitement of She’s Gone Country officially hitting stores.
Book releases mean book tours, which means lots of traveling, hard work, and time away from my family. But touring also offers me the chance to visit new and beloved destinations, meet new and dedicated readers, and celebrate the finished product of the hard work of writing.
I love my job. And I especially love book releases! And this one started a little early… bonus!
I hope you’ll celebrate with me by taking part in the She’s Gone Country Cover Girl Contest. I am just in love with the cover of She’s Gone Country (little known fact: authors have very little say in the cover design process, so it’s a blessing when the cover is this awesome). I couldn’t think of a better way to commemorate the book’s release and give away some great prizes than to ask my readers create their own version of Shey and the red truck, snap a photo, and send it in.
All the details for entering are right here, or just look for this cover girl graphic on my home page (or wherever) to get whisked to the details, and also to the gallery of the photos as they start to come in. Take note: there are a few ways to enter, so everyone can participate!
This is a quick one: the contest ends September 10th, so get going! Cowgirl up!
In the meantime, I can’t wait to check in from the road to post your entries and read your comments about She’s Gone Country and the Shey-inspired photos.
