It’s been a busy week here over at Casa Lamba, and it’s all because of my new paranormal novel Drawn.
First of all, Drawn, as of today, has hit #27 on the bestseller list in its category of medieval fiction on Amazon. Go Drawn Go!!!! I’m so thrilled that readers are responding so well to my new novel. Sure, I’d fallen in love with my story of a teen artist who draws a guy that might just be a ghost from the middle ages…and the love of her life. But would anyone else feel the same? Was I completely nuts? And are these two mutually exclusive???
Well, reviews are coming in…including this one just yesterday from the huge Twilight fan site TwilightMOMs: “Mysterious and enchanting, DRAWN is a breath of fresh air. If you are looking for a page turner with a unique twist, then look no further.”
Happy HAPPY HAPPY dance! And a big PHEW! Truly, being a writer is such an uncertain thing. We really thrive on this sort of encouragement…it makes me want to jump around the room…best of all, it makes me want to write more.
ALSO this week, there was a knock at my door, and three thuds outside as UPS delivered 100 paperback copies of the novel. There’s something about seeing so many of your books at once — a feeling like no other! Kinda like love? What I could do with these! Stack them up in a neat pile…line them up like dominoes…cover the floor with them and roll on them like a puppy…Erm. TMI? Now it’s time to set up my book launch signing (details will be coming soon) and to get these copies onto my local bookstore shelves! (I promise they have NOT been rolled on.)
ALSO ALSO this week, the Drawn Blog Ghost Tour is in full swing, so that means that every day there is something new about Drawn posted at a great book blogger site! You can follow along with all the different interviews, insiders bits, reviews and giveaways by clicking here and going to the post links.
Two of the tour stops are currently running a giveaway of Drawn over at their sites! Just click on either of these great blogs and either comment or fill in the entry form for a chance to win an autographed paperback copy of Drawn: The Elliot Review and TwilightMOMS.com. These giveaways are running through the end of this month, so don’t miss your chance to enter.
So it’s been crazy here, but crazy in a GOOD way. Keep the goodness going, by spreading the word about Drawn with others…sharing this post…buying the book by clicking here (thank you to my readers! <3). And I’ll keep up the happy dancing and the writing…and thinking about a possible sequel called Sketch.
