Virtual Launch Party!

Poor Adversary.  As my second-born book, it has to wear hand-me-down cover protectors and never feels like it's getting enough attention.

And Minder pinches it when I'm not looking.

But today is Adversary's day!   Happy launch day, Adversary!

In honor of today's release date, I'm having a giveaway.  Comment below by midnight (EDT) Wednesday, August 25th. I'll randomly select someone and send him or her a signed copy of Adversary.  Tell your friends on your blog, Facebook, etc., and send me the link. I'll enter you for an additional chance to win for every link you post. I'll also give you an extra chance if you're a follower, and an additional chance if you're a new follower (as of today, August 20th). Woohoo!  Free stuff!

And now, everyone gather 'round as little Adversary gazes in wonder at the tiny flame on top of the candle, then digs its little hands into the frosting.

"...Happy Launch Day to you!"

UPDATE: Oooh--check out today's interview on Cari's Book Blog! +1 chance for posting there, too, and another +1 if you become one of her followers.

Kate, please don't enter me.

I wanted to say congrats! I got my copy yesterday (thank you!). I was SO excited to see my name of the praise page. It is my first time being quoted like that. I can't wait to show all my friends.

Congrats and big hugs
Elie

Woohoo!!! Happy book birthday to Adversary, Kate! I am so excited for you!

P.S. my word verification was "deadd" - Are you trying to tell me something?

Disgruntled Bear said...

Thanks, everyone!

BTW, Cindy--that'd be a cool word verification for the launch of Boola Boo, the book in which my MC talks to ghosts (WIP).
