Happy Release Day!

book birthday ac 2

Today, Amy’s Choice is officially out in the world and I’ll be signing hot-off-the-press copies at Barnes & Noble in Salem, NH from 2–4. Seems fitting, since today is also National Author’s Day.

Be sure to scroll down to win prizes, but first, check out these great blogs that are helping me celebrate:

Lots of good questions on Laurie J. Edward‘s blog along with pictures of my workspace and hobbies.

Seven interesting thoughts on Stacy McAnulty‘s blog.

Leandra Wallace‘s unique questions almost stumped me. And she’s got a giveaway happening now.

And one more interview on a new blog for authors: The Write Stuff.balloons 2

Other recent postings: 

A letter to my teenage self is included on the popular Dear Teen Me site.

Jorie Loves a Story did in-depth reviews of both of the Amy books!

Even Little Miss Trainwreck enjoyed reading Call Me Amy and Amy’s Choice.

Check out Roxy’s wonderful review here!

Thank you ALL for joining in the celebration! But wait…what’s a party without prizes? Here they are:

1st prize = $25 VISA card

2nd prize = signed hardcover copy of Amy’s Choice plus 70’s swag

3rd prize = signed paperback copy of Amy’s Choice plus bookmark

Everyone who comments on this post will get one entry. Those who also ‘follow’ this blog will be entered twice. Prize winners will be drawn on Nov. 9th. Good luck!
