Meet Me In New Hampshire

So the car and the kiddies are packed, and we're heading up to New Hampshire for my reading/signing on Saturday. If you're in the area, please stop by!

In the meantime, if you haven't bought the book, will you pretty, pretty, pretty please pick it up this weekend? And email your friends and ask them to too? :) And then have them email their friends? LOL. Okay, maybe not. But I ask because, I can't believe this, it actually looks like I have a shot at making the bestseller list THIS WEEK, so THIS WEEK'S sales really, really, really matter. So please, please, please - buy it today! If your local store doesn't have it, please ask them to order it! I was told that this is the best way to help boost store support. (The things you learn...I'd normally rush home and buy it from Amazon, but apparently not.)

Okay, enough of my begging (one more time: please???): my GCC tour begins next week, but two lovely bloggers were kind enough to tour me early, which should keep you occupied until I'm back in town and at the computer.

You are SO going to make the bestseller list this week! I can feel it!

Have a great weekend in NH :)

So maybe my predictive powers aren't so far off the mark! I've pleaded your case at my blog too. Good luck!!

Candy said...

Awesome! Added you to my library on my blog too. Good Luck!

I have just found your very impressive blog. As a fellow writer I must admire your promotional productivity, perhaps that's why you are where you are. I tend to find it a distraction from actual writing. I have a question. How have you found working with MP of moving images (if you get my not so subtle meaning). Anyway all the best from the north of Sweden.

Hi Allison,

I just finished "Time of my Life" and I felt compelled to write you to say that I was very affected your book. It was a bit surreal for me as I read along while Jill verbalized her feelings on motherhood, marriage, and famliy. I kept reading and reading, amazed that someone finally put words to the disappointments and frustrations that I go through and feel so often. I have my own "Katie" and while reading your book I was taken back to a time when she too was just learning to walk. She of course was constantly falling down and until today when I read that Jilly realized Katie (I'm paraphrasing here) was not just brave for getting back up each time she took a header but she was also bravely moving forward, taking chances. Unafraid. Confident. Secure.

Raising a child is a mammoth task and often far from rosy, but I couldn't make it without my daughter. Allison's smile, currently toothless :-), her joy of life, and her complete and whole love of me makes my life so good. I am so lucky. Your book refocused my perscpective. Thank you. I can skip therapy this week. :-)

I am thrilled for the success of the book and if you are ever on the West Coast let me know and I would be happy to travel to a book signing. Thank you for putting such a personal piece of yourself out for others to enjoy. You touched my life.
