It's a Bouncing Baby...Book!

It's here! It's here! It's really here!



It's official. #2 is out there in the world. 

I don't know whether to SQUEEEE!!! or to EEEEK!!!

But this nice little book birthday present is making me lean toward SQUEE-ing:

USA Today Happy Ever After Blog

Later today I will do the typical self-indulgent author thing, and go to a few local bookstores to see if I'm on the shelves. In disguise, of course, so if I'm not on the shelves I can pretend I'm a real customer when I ask for it. (What? It would be embarrassing to ask for my own book.) 

Oh, and if you happen to find yourself in a bookstore today, and you happen to see either of my books, and you feel inclined to turn them so that they're facing out...well, that would be cool. Just don't get caught, because I'm not sure how bookstores feel about random customers rearranging their shelves. Personally, I do this for all my author buddies. But then, I get off on the intrigue of "stealth marketing"-- I'm a badass that way. ;)  

This evening I'll celebrate at a nice restaurant with TG, my son, and some good friends. 

Then, tomorrow, I'll sit my butt back in my chair and work on book 3, because that sucker ain't gonna finish writing itself.

YAY! Congratulations!

That's a terrific article in "USA Today". Just exactly the right tone to sell more of your books! How can anyone NOT want to read your work after reading that article?

Just for you, I'll drink a little something-something tonight in your honor. Maybe a couple something-somethings. (HEY! It's your second book, after all!)

YAY!!! I love Ciel!! SOOO excited for QUICK FIX to be out in the world. And thrilled that more of her wacky adventures are on the way... You rock, Linda!!! Congratulations!

yay! And celebrate. Then fight the hangover. Then get to work on The Big Fix, lady. Unless of course you have a real Ciel hidden somewhere. In that case you can head for the beach while she pretends to work.
