I declare the manic season open!
Oh yes, this is going to be my four weeks of madness ahead of the launch of Sophie’s Run, and I am very excited about it all. Here’s a little sneak peek at what will be happening, and I’ll bring you posts with updates as I go along, of course.
First of all, let me remind you what Book 2 is all about; here’s the blurb:
Her famous star remains her rock while life takes her on a little detour…
Who says that the road towards true love is straight and even? Sophie is certainly discovering that it is anything but.
So she has finally found the man of her dreams! Well… she knows who he is, even though she hasn’t actually quite met him yet. But she misses her opportunity, and then her life goes crazy. Rock star and ex-fiancé, Dan, keeps getting in the way of her new romance—even if he is just trying to be helpful. A fire, an impromptu mini-trip with Dan, and a dreaded wedding later, Sophie is still struggling to meet the love of her life. Then, just as she is getting it together with her perfect man, best friend Rachel commits an act of unspeakable betrayal.
Sophie has had enough. Confused and distraught, she decides that it is time for radical change. Surprising herself and shocking her friends, she embarks on a secret journey eventually gets her life back on track.
Where is Sophie’s Run now?
Right at this very moment, Sophie’s Run is at the printer. Squeee! I’m hoping to get my trembling fingers on paper back copies of my second book in the next two to three weeks, and you’ll be the first to know when they get here!
In addition, the book is also being formatted for e-publishing in all the various formats so we will be all singing-and-dancing on pub day. (Pub day being 7 February 2013, in case I hadn’t mentioned the date lately).
What kind of launch party will there be for Sophie’s Run?
A fabulous one, to put it simply! Plans are afoot to launch this baby live on air over at Siren 107.3 FM with Alex Lewczuk and various Special Guests on the eve of publication, 6 February, from 5pm to 7pm. Let me hear you say, Hell Yeah! More details to follow when I have the line-up complete.
In addition, I’ll also be hosting a lightning-signing event at Welton library at 10 a.m. on 7 February, so if you’re in the area, drop by! You can visit my blog all through the day of 7 February to take part in the party. And if that’s not enough, I’ll also be hosting a Facebook party so that absolutely everybody can take part!
Will you be taking Sophie’s Run on tour?
Why, of course! And, more importantly, I’ll be taking YOU with me ~ on a tour of geographic and culinary discovery, just like a rock star. The schedule is nearly finalized, 90 per cent of the blog posts have been written, and I will post more details right here on this blog very soon, watch this space.
And of course, while I’m getting this all organized, I also have a duty to Sophie and Dan to finish their story, so I’m typing away at Book 3, Sophie’s Encore. #norestforthewicked, right? It’s gonna be awesome!
Wow. You ARE a rock star! 🙂 I love it!
*blush* I have this secret dream, you see…. Just kidding. Thanks for visiting and hopefully see you at the party next month! XX
Busy! Busy! Busy! And very exciting! x
Indeed! Thanks for visiting today and see you … at the party? XX
So exciting!! You know I’ll be there Nicky, looking forward to it 🙂
I know, can’t wait! Wouldn’t be the same without you. XXX
Inch by inch. Step by step you’re going to reach the BIG DAY. The only difference is this time you ready know the road as well as what lies ahead and the journey is not as foreboding as it had been the first time. The sense of accomplishment is definitely still there, albeit the euphoric sensation might not be as great. I admire you and your successes, and hopefully my writing endeavors/endeavours will also one day prove to be just as successful.
Aw, Robin, you make me blush. Thank you for your very kind comment, I knew you’d understand. See you at the party!! x
Looking forward to the big day, Nicky.
Thanks so much, Anneli ~ it’s gonna be awesome, if I say so myself! The show will be online if you have a moment or three to listen in… 🙂
Great news. Get the bubbly ready. Does this time feel any different to the last one?
Bubbly is ready!!! It is a little different in that I know better what is coming (I think~hahaha!). But it’s every last bit as exciting!!! See you at the party, Lynne! XX
