Gratitude, Goodreads, & Interviews

I couldn't think of another G-word...

Anyway, I dropped the bomb and then went out of town/offline for a week! But I'm back now with Three things:

Source
#1-HUGE THANKS! And big hugs and squeezes to everyone who said congratulations, tweeted, sent Facebook messages, squee-ed, and otherwise made me feel all warm and fuzzy these last few weeks about my book deal.

It didn't really feel real until...

#2-The awesome and multi-talented Lydia Kang (link) set up a Goodreads page for my first book ROUGE! (link) Then she told me how to make an author page (link), and suddenly I felt officially official. (!)

If you want to, *kicks the dirt* you could maybe add my book to your TBR list. (Yes? Click here. Or in the sidebar -->)

#3-I'm not here today! I'm being interviewed as one of the Miss Snark's First Victim Secret Agent contest winners. So I'm over on fellow winner David Kazzie's blog (link).

David!
It's a short interview, I promise. Run over and say Hi! (What's MSFV Secret Agent contest you ask? Here's the link.)

Finally (4?), tomorrow I will be here with a special-edition post!

As part of the MSFV winners' blog tour, I'll be interviewing J. Anderson Coats (link), who writes about 13th century Wales. She's very cool like that.

Be sure to come back and check it out!

Again, I can't thank you all enough. Have a great week, reader- and writer-friends! <3

I spend a lot of time on goodreads so I'm glad you're there.

You're so welcome! It was worth seeing ROUGE up there in all its glory! Now, can't wait for the cover art...

Well done, Leigh. Somehow, I missed your wonderful news. Wishing you every success. Seems like you're already on the way with some positive reviews. Added on Goodreads.

Chris Fries said...

Congratulations again, Leigh! I'm so excited for you!

And that was a great interview!

I also have to go and get on GoodReads so I can start supporting my favorite authors. I've been foot-dragging because I really need like yet ANOTHER social media site to beg for my too-little time. But now you've given me the reason that trumps my slackerness. ;^)

I'll stop in and see your interview; I'd like to meet David and learn more about you at the same time.

Congratulations on your book. I'll pop over to goodreads and fb to take a look

Thanks for the visit at The Write Game on Insecure Writers Wed. Come again, please!

@Clarissa--thanks, girl! Looks like I'll be there more often nowadays! :o)0 <3

@Kelly--THANKS! :o)

@Chris--You guys have really made this special for me. Thanks for visiting David's blog. I know he appreciates it. Goodreads isn't so bad. I hadn't spent as much time on it before, but I guess here I geaux~ :D ((hugs))

Carolyn Abiad said...

Great interview!
Are you doing a blog tour when the book comes out? I want to be on that list! <3

Dianne K. Salerni said...

Congrats! I will head over to Goodreads at once.

I don't know who set up the page for my book on Goodreads. It just appeared one day shortly after the sale, to my utter delight. So awesome when that happens!

Amy Jarecki said...

I added your book on Goodreads!

LTM said...

@Carolyn--Oh! Thank you!!! That makes me so happy. I'm sure I'll do something like that--maybe when I have a firm pub date? Whee!!! :o) <3

@Amy--Thanks so much! That means so much to me. :D I hope you like it! <3
