So… that happened yesterday. That’s pretty much my real-time reaction to getting my author copies. (After I danced around the box and put The Schmidtlets down for an impromptu nap). In case you were wondering, YES, I DID give myself a papercut on the chin while snuggling the book.
And then I quickly put the book back in the box. Where it still sits, along with all my other untouched author copies, in the front hall of my house. It didn’t even occur to me to OPEN the book until St.Matt was paging through one when he got home from work.
Guys… they’re so pretty! I LOVE them! And I can’t wait until you can see them too.
It’s only FIVE WEEKS AND FIVE DAYS until SEND ME A SIGN hits bookstore shelves… and since FIVE is my main character, Mia’s, favorite number, that means it’s time for a giveaway.
I’m giving away TWO Send Me A Sign ARCS. (Yes, I DO know it’s odd to give away ARCS when I just got my author copies, but I had this giveaway planned out and the author copies were a Very Awesome Surprise).
To enter — just fill out the form below. I’ll pick winners on August 31st.
ALSO — did you notice anything NEW around here? *gestures excitedly* Hello, new website! (This was how I’d planned to open this blog post before the Very Awesome Surprise). Go! Click around! Explore! This post will still be waiting when you come back. MANY, many hours of stress, tears, and tweaking went into this redesign. I hope you like it! I owe a HUGE hug-accompanying THANK YOU to Courtney Summers who talked me down from my My-Brain-Can’t-Handle-WordPress ledge many, many times. (Including a particularly tearful e-mail “I just don’t know WHY it’s not working! I’ve spent the past 90 minutes trying EVERYTHING” — her response, “Tiffany, clear your cache – it’s working fine.” I dutifully Googled “cache” and she was right.)
So, really, this whole post can be summed up as:
Welcome to the new site! I’m so glad you’re here! Let me offer you prizes & please admire my pretty author copies!
(The form has been removed because the contest is close — thanks for entering!)

It is a very pretty new website design! I had to comment before I start wandering, but even from here I can tell it’s adorbs :o)
Also: LOVE your reactions to the author copies, hehe … Sorry about the papercut though – I’ve done that before, cheesing with a new book, haha
Thanks so much! I’m *starting* to think that the end result was worth all the stress, tears, & frantic emails to Courtney!
And the papercut is all healed up, so no permanent damage done… (yet)!
Love the new site and of course the author copies! That first photo is SO freaking adorable 😀
Please try not to give yourself more papercuts, though! 😉
The Pip Squeak makes that same face when he gets over-excited. And The Wild Imp bites his bottom lip like I’m doing in the second shot… I guess we now know where they get it from.
Loving the new site! And I love the pics at the top…they are all so very you. lol
