Aaaand ... We have LIFTOFF!

It's finally here! My Launch Week over at The Debutante Ball!

Yeah, I know. It's not really officially the week my book launches. That's not until the first week of September (the 4th being THE DAY). But my term is almost over at the Ball, so I had to squeeze in where I could. (Heh-heh. I said "squeeze in.")

You see, when I first donned the tiara, In a Fix was slated to be released in July. But due to some mysterious alchemy in the publishing process, Tor thought it would work better as a September release. Who am I to argue with alchemy?

So, anyway, I'll be answering my fellow Debs questions all week, AND (this is the good part)...

I'm giving away a signed ARC (with bookmark!) every day this week! 

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment over there. Comment all five days, and you have five chances to win.

Today, Deb Joanne asks me about my guys.  (That's the same link as the one above, if you've already gone over.) Hope to see you there. :)


EDITED TO ADD: Okay, since Debbie Haupt showed up in the comments and linked to her very kind Library Journal review of In a Fix, I guess it's okay for me to share it, too. Click here to see it. (I swear I didn't bribe her!)

Boy, if the partying is starting already, you'd better pace yourself! Great review in LibraryJournal. Wow, are you pinching yourself? To work so hard, and wait so long ... finally the pay-off is at hand!!! Must feel like a dream come true.

Hurray, Linda! What a fantastic review!

Since your release date falls during the busy first weeks of school and I might forget, I'm heading over now to pre-order in on Kindle. That way ... it just comes by itself!

Books that deliver themselves. Gotta love technology!

K-pop -- Let's! Did anyone remember to hire a male...um, exotic dancer? ;)

Susan -- Thanks! I've been really lucky in the review department. Color me relieved!

Dianne -- Thank you! I DO love technology--e-readers are the best. I take my Kindle everywhere with me now.

Judy -- Yeah, I AM going to miss it. It's been loads of fun prancing around in the long gloves and tiara. But, alas, all good things must end, and I'll be taking a bunch of good memories with me when I go.

Julie -- Hi there! And thanks for stopping by. I hope you'll enjoy In a Fix. :)
