But Wait, There's More!

Thanks again, everyone, for your enthusiasm for my new cover. I'm still in love with it, even one day later, which is a good sign.

So, because so many of you guys are excited for the book, I posted an excerpt - the entire first chapter - on my site today.

Check it out: http://allisonwinn.com/resources/TOMLexcerpt.html, and I really, really hope you enjoy it and that it lives up to the cover promise!

I tried not to look. Because I know myself, and I'm not good at waiting. But I looked anyway. ARGH!

It's fabulous. And now I really mean it when I say I can't wait to read it :)

I read it -- and loved it! Can't wait for more.

What a fantastic Friday surprise: The entire first chapter of TOML and its content! So many great lines and thoughts in that excerpt leave you knowing there's much, much more.

And that means it's it's time for another countdown to pub date! ;)

Thank you, Allison.

I'm gonna hold off until I get the galley...

...though, Ms. Ryan, your galley is almost at the top of my 'to read pile' -- watch out!!! :-)

Allison,
I am really enjoying your blog and will be a regular reader.

I just finished reading the first chapter of your new book. 1) thanks for sharing it with us, 2) I can't wait to get the book and read the rest of the story.

I love the way you manage to dive right into the story while providing just enough background to give us a sense of the character. I look forward to reading more!
