Generation V Giveaway!
Less than two months to go before Generation V is available in bookstores everywhere, whether brick and mortar or online! May 7 is the magical date, for those of you who *haven’t* inscribed it on every available surface. Fun secondary fact – it turns out that this is also the release date for the conclusion of Charlaine Harris’s Southern Vampire series – so if you’re going to be in the bookstore anyway to buy Dead Ever After, why not buy Generation V while you’re at it? Or, if you’re buying it online, throwing Generation V onto the order will get you (almost) to the $25 minimum for super saver shipping!
There have been some fun developments as the debut gets closer. For one thing, Generation V now has a Goodreads Giveaway! Link is here. Twenty-five advance readers copies, so that’s pretty exciting. Even more exciting – if more people sign up for my giveaway than for my friend Django Wexler’s epic fantasy The Thousand Names I will have total bragging rights. (Fact: I am horribly competitive, and so is my brother. It has gotten to the point where our mother refuses to play board games with us anymore unless our spouses are also involved.)
A few other things are brewing, and hopefully I’ll have more to say about those shortly. Apparently the ARCs have also been circulating among the trade magazines, and I’m starting to hear that the book is getting some good reception. I’ll talk about those a bit more at a later date, hopefully when I have links for reviews.
A blog called The Qwillery has included Generation V in their 2013 Debut Author Challenge. I really like this idea, and I’m excited to get to be a part of it. I’ll get to do a guest blog on the site in April, and then they’ll be posting an interview with me the day after Generation V’s pub date.
That’s mostly tying things up. The last few months I’ve been keeping my hands busy by working on the sequel to Generation V. That’s with the editor now, so I’m occupying myself now with planning major events for Book Three. More details on those will come later, but I’m very eagerly waiting to see what people think about Generation V.
But as I’m biding my time until the day that I can go to Barnes and Noble and take photos of my book on the shelves (fact: I’ve already gone and admired the spot where it will be), here’s what I’ll be doing on March 30th!
