Don’t worry, there’s not going to be a daily countdown. We’ll be puttering along at this blog more or less per usual — with posts about the book, about our other projects, about friends’ books, and about the creative life. But we did want to acknowledge the milestone and note some of the things that are coming up as we get closer to release day.
1. We’re going to be on the radio. We’ll be on Hummingbird Place, the live romance radio talk show, on August 18.
2. We’ll be creating and posting more promo cards that will give you a look at Starling‘s locations and key moments.
3. We’re doing a blog tour that will include new excerpts from the book, new behind the scenes details, and chances to win free stuff, including Alex’s iconic beanie (knitted by Erin), that serves a major function in the plot.
These things will get individual posts with all the details as they approach.
I love the idea of book related prizes.
What would be cool is if you combined #2 and #3 on that list and had, like, post cards. Am I wrong for thinking that? I mean, I’d also definitely be excited for stickers but, like, your target audience wouldn’t go for that I’m sure.
Funny you should say that — our last “Achievement!” moment at the end of a very long office day in Philly this past Saturday was ordering post cards for Starling, and discussing whether or not to do stickers. We will definitely keep this in mind 🙂
Maybe you could do, like, a limited-edition print run of stickers because stickers?
