Release Day!

You guys are so incredibly awesome, I just want to say a big THANK YOU! The last year has been wild. Seriously. Huge ups and downs.  And through it all, you guys have kept me smiling. Whatever happens with SOUL MAGIC now, at least I’m hanging out with friends :-)

How I want to share a picture that made me happy dance! Wild Witchlady from Facebook, known as Wildwitchca on Twitter, a bookseller in Canada sent me this pic of Soul Magic as her Staff Pick

Soul  Magic Staff Pick

You can see her review of the book here

Don’t you think that’s worth blowing off work and having appletinis all day? (If my editors read this, I’m just kidding! Really!)

    WOOT! Release day, it’s release day! I’ll be stalking my mail man this week. Sutton’s book is gonna rock! I’m so excited! And I just can’t hide it! (can you hear the music? Sing with me!)

    I would LOVE to blow off this day and drink appletinis to celebrate release day, unfortunately, my boss is coming into town tomorrow and I have to go to work to get things ready for her. DARN IT ALL!

    *SIGH* I’ll just have to have appletinis later.

    Ban, no worries! I have lots of Wing Slayer Hunters on standby in case you have heart palpitations! Turns out, they think we should celebrate too :-)

    I am Snoopy Dancing all over the place for you, Jen! HAPPY RELEASE DAY, WITCH!!!!!

    Erika? The flying monkeys worked! They found my copy of SOUL MAGIC and it is now enroute to me! I’ll have it to read this weekend! I’m mixing and pouring the appletinis like crazy, witches, so get in line! (And I still promise not to breathe on anyone and wash my hands like a good witch!)

    Erika, what’s this? Your boss doesn’t know it’s Release Day? I thought it was a world-wide holiday! SNORT! So sorry you have to work.

    Hope your mailman brings the book soon!

    Silver, are you feeling better?

    Thanks so much! I heard someone else had a problem with Amazon. I wonder if they had problems from the change in release dates. Anyway, glad your copy is on its way!

    I’ll take a germ free appletini!

    I don’t do Amazon. Mine’s coming from B&N. It’s a really weird deal. I’d ordered from them ages ago, but every time I checked, the order wasn’t showing up. They showed I had no pending orders. Deciding that maybe I didn’t order it after all (I’ve been known to go brain dead), I ordered again from Borders last week with a whole bunch of books on their buy 4 get 1 free offer, plus a coupon for free shipping, and $5.00 in Borders bucks. Lo and behold, late yesterday, I get an email from B&N saying SOUL MAGIC has shipped. WTF? And now the Borders order is showing it on back order (also says the book isn’t available in stores which is a real pisser!) I’m going to keep both copies. I really wish we had an independent bookseller here with an appreciation for romances!

    Okay. That’s my rant for today. I’m going back to bed now. I promise to send all my germs to bad booksellers! A pox on them, I say! And appletinis for all good witchy-sellers!!!!!

    Silver, glad the monkeys helped. They were excited to get out of the lair.

    I tried explaining to her that it was release day, but she said something in a language I didn’t understand and hung up on me! HOW RUDE! ;)

    Silver, my head is spinning! WTH…this is weird. I’m really sorry you’re having a such a hard time! Were you able to cancel your Borders order?

    This is why I LOVE smaller, indie booksellers! We should send them all appletinis!

    Now lets drink out and that alcohol will burn out the nasty flu virus :-)

    Erika, Yay for the monkeys! But it sounds like you’re dealing with a real troll on the phone :-(

    I am agreeing with Silver… I am doing the Snoopy Dance for you over here!!! My head was buried in a pile of folders that did not want to cooperate with me!!!! I hate numbers when they don’t like me… Yea, I work in an accounting firm.. lol!!!

    Girl, pass them appletini’s this way… and I praying like crazy that when I go home this afternoon…. my book will be waiting for me!!!! If not, I am grabbing one of those monkeys by the tail and making him fetch my copy!!!!! I can not wait for this book to hit my hands!!!!

    Jen, I’m gonna keep both copies because sale numbers, right?!? I’d buy a hundred copies if I had the money! I’ve given up trying to figure out what’s going on with the big three book sellers.

    Silver, that’s so generous of you! Thanks!

    I don’t know what’s going on with the big 3 booksellers, but I do know there are sometimes delivery and communication problems. So frustrating for everyone.

    Jen, I almost always have lots of reading :) My TBR pile just keeps growing no matter how fast I read. And this morning, I went to Meijer’s after work to pick up SM and a couple of others. They didn’t have any of the books I wanted :( (Bastards, don’t know what’s wrong with them.) So I came home and checked online. BN and Borders both showed no inventory at my local stores. I kinda started to panic. I need my books!!! My local BN ended up having all but one of the books I wanted. I got SM and three others and some Godiva.

    Don’t know how you’d ever think Sutton wouldn’t be worthy. I’m not very far into the book, but I already love him :D Congrats!! Now have another Appletini and a brownie to celebrate :)

    Dawn, oh my gosh, I’m impressed you had to work so hard to find the book! You are determined! Thank you!

    I’m bouncing with happiness that you find Sutton worthy so far!

    Appletinis and brownies, the perfect combo :-) I just had a brownie and am stuff.

    No book today… but tomorrow you will be at my place!!! YAYYAYAYAYAYAY! I am so looking forward to you being at my place tomorrow!!!
    And girl… I told you that Sutton was worthy!!! And I have not even read the book yet and I know that!!!! Oh.. Appletini’s and brownies… Yummmyyy!!!
    Have a great night everyone!! So jealous of those that have their copies already!
