I have a big favor to ask: I have 2 GREAT books. Dig some of these reviews:

Reviews!!!!  Goodreads.
Amazon Reviews! I'm international!


I will be promoting "These Foolish Things" and "At Last" on June 21 in Long Beach at Readers by the Sea. I want the tale of Liz and Ty to become international best sellers. I need to start with some promotional materials. 

Since my birthday is June 1, I figured that if you were thinking of giving me a gift, the BEST gift would be help towards getting these items on the wish list: a banner from Staples, custom bookmarks from Isabella's Minibook Swag, actual copies of the books (through CreateSpace). Or the actual items. 

I figure that most of the people who would consider this campaign already have read and/or have their own signed book copies. So, I asked myself, what would be an inducement that would persuade folks to part with their moolah? 

Aha!

How about this: I'm writing the prequel to "These Foolish Things" and "At Last." It's called "The Baldie Chronicles" and it's set 5 years before "These Foolish Things." $100 or more gets a minor character who actually says stuff (and isn't obnoxious) named after you. I already have a couple of characters you'd want to punch in the face named after people I want to punch in the face (with slight variations to avoid any resemblance to actual people. Wink. Wink.)  

Get in on the ground floor of a  publishing juggernaut. And make a middle-aged lady happy. (Middle aged? Yeesh).

Susan I have been meaning to buy your books and I absolutely will do it, but thought this little bit might help with more immediate needs. You keep on keeping on because you have such great talent and it is no longer great undiscovered talent. Much love.~Victoria
