My Book Launch is CURSED

Oh Well, 3rd Times a Charm GIVEAWAY! I also wanted something big to celebrate hitting 3k on Twitter!

In an effort to quickly reschedule the launch of Breathe and Pigments of My Imagination I made a really huge mistake. The plan was to release it on the 21st and have a Rockin' Twitter Launch Party that Friday...which if I had bothered to look at a calender I would have realized was BLACK FRIDAY.

I had a lot of success with my first Twitter Launch of Skeleton Lake, and I know attempting one on BLACK FRIDAY where people are shopping, traveling, and asleep after waking up a 3am to score some serious deals isn't the best course of action.

After sobbing to my Publisher, Red Iris Books, I was assured it wouldn't KILL me to reschedule it a last time. After talking about it to death, we came up with the date 12/2/11

The world better not end before then!

Anyway on to the giveaway. People actually threatened me when I rescheduled the last time! Since you won't be reading Pigments in November, I figured I'd give away some SWEET November releases to appease the masses.

Here we go! All these books will be coming to you off of Amazon directly, because if you know me, you know that I only hate the post office has much as it hates me! So no wait once the winner sends me their info ;)




Contest ends 11/30!

Thanks for the great giveaway. I so don't like Black Friday I see no point going shopping on that day makes no sense to me.

ajkulig said...

Mel & Cherie thanks!

Ali LOL I know it will work out great, it just might KILL ME to wait.

AJ- You are welcome!

Catlin- I dislike Black Friday as well. I worked retail as a kid and I have developed a phobia of it since then. People tend to turn into monsters on that day. You would be surprised at the number of people who complained about LINES. Like what did they expect ;)

I think it was smart to move it. I have to say that I have barely been on a computer since Wed. I am only averaging about 1 hour a day, where on a normal Friday I am on the computer at least 12 hours (includes work time).
