Breathless Reads Recap
The tour was amazing! It was wonderful to meet readers and booksellers! Now that I’ve gotten (mostly) past my stage fright, I felt so much more comfortable at our events. It was wonderful to see Beth again and meet Fiona, Liz, and Morgan. In addition to the six bookstore signings and the Faze Magazine concert, we also did four school visits. We hit seven cities in seven days. It was exhausting but totally, totally worth it to talk about books all week! THANK YOU to Penguin for sending us out, the bookstores and librarians who hosted us, and all of the readers and bloggers who came to see us!
And now I’m back home with The Playwright and Monkey, and things may be a little quiet around here for the next few weeks. I’m on deadline for the first draft of Cahill Book 3 and I’ve still got lots to write! Meanwhile, STAR CURSED ARCs are making their way out into the world (see here for how to request one) and I am so excited to hear what readers think! So far, early responses have indicated that readers are feeling ALL THE FEELS! *claps delightedly* *smiles wickedly*
What an awesome tour, Jess! I so wish I could've seen you on one of the stops!
Me toooo! I'm sad that we didn't come back to DC this year. But I'm going to do my best to throw an awesome STAR CURSED launch party!
OMG Jessie, I want all of your dresses. You look beyond fabulous!
Unrelatedly, I keep seeing copies of Born Wicked getting checked out all the time in my library system and it makes me HAPPY. We have the playaway audio version now too, so my dear hubs will be listening to it soon!
Agggh that makes me so happy too! I LOVE LIBRARIES SO MUCH.
And thank you re: the dresses! My wardrobe was all Anthropologie & Modcloth. 🙂
I like your royal blue dress the best 🙂 http://www.jessicaspotswood.com/blog/?attachment_…
Thank you! 🙂 I had fun picking out dresses from my ridiculously large dress collection. I swear, when I'm home all I wear is yoga pants and t-shirts…
You look fab 🙂 Sad I missed the Toronto signing! Hopefully sometime in the future!
Thanks, Loie! I'm sorry to have missed you. I'm hoping to set something up in Toronto for mid-July when I'm up there for a writing retreat!
