Book release party this Friday!

I'm super-excited about holding the real-live hardcover copy of TRANSCENDENCE in my sweaty palms! Here it is, along with two more novels coming out from Hadley Rille Books in short order, FINDER by Terri-Lynne DeFino and THE NORTHERN QUEEN by Kim Vandervort:


The release party will be held at Jayhawk Ink (second floor in the KU student union) this Friday, Nov. 5, from 4:00pm - 5:30pm, then party at my place afterward from then until late! Come celebrate the release of my debut novel. Should be a blast!


PS: Some folks have asked about ordering the book if they can't make it to the book release. No problem; in fact, you can still pre-order directly from the publisher at a tidy discount (with free shipping). Amazon and other fine bookstores will have it in stock starting Friday, and the Kindle edition (among other ebook formats) will be available soon.



Woohoo!
Chris

Congratulations again! This is three kinds of awesome!

I cannot make it up to KS for the event, but now you have no more reasons not to come to some of the OK conventions!

then party at my place afterward

Times? I could stop by, but it wouldn't be until later and I like to know times than assume them.

Isn't it all exciting?

...sick kitty is making me have to reconsider party venue, darnit. Ugh. "After" is going to vary if it's not at my house, where people would have it set up and running before I got there (until late). If we end up holding the party elsewhere (where, aaaa!), it'll be from about 6pm - late.

Poor kitty.

6pm - late means I will probably show up! The *probably* will depend on Mac being content to stay with the kids.

I'll be on the look-out for the final location.

Yeah, Chris! I wish I could be there! We're going to have to have a Hadley Rille party so that I can get everyone to sign all my books.

Have a BLAST!
(And thanks for the pimpage!)

I'm so excited and happy for you! I'm sorry I haven't been able to express as much enthusiasm as you deserve. I really am thrilled. I promise!

We will see you there. The book looks great! I pass by your display at the bookstore on my way to the office in the morning.

Also, it might amuse you to know - at WFC last weekend, nearly everyone who heard I was from Lawrence asked if I knew you. :) (Not just the people from your publisher, either.)

Really? How fun is that! Thanks for sharing such a fun tidbit. Wish I'd been able to go.

Awesome! And of course the girls are welcome to both events! I'll have underage-friendly food & beverages as well as adult beverages.
