….ok, Hardback Writer. But seriously, I don’t remember that song.
Now people, I’ve begged. I’ve pleaded. I’ve threatened. For g-d’s sakes, I’ve even attempted subtlety….which is sooooo not my style. And so far, Garkawe is the only person I know who has pre-ordered a copy of Rebecca’s book.
Have I not given you people 5 years of my life that you can’t give a friend of a friend $16.47 (via amazon)? C’mon people – where’s the love??
Nice to Come Home To is released tomorrow. Do not disappoint me folks. Don’t disappoint her or the folks at Riverhead Press (I almost typed ‘Riverdale’, but I think that’s where Archie and Jughead went to school).
I don’t think there will be Harry Potter lines at midnight, but that’s no reason you can’t get a jump on the crowds. You’re gonna need it for the beach anyway and why not be the first on your block to say ‘oh yeah – I read it before it was popular!! ……you’re just getting to it now?’
I know I’m impartial – I’m not only her friend, but it could be argued that I am the inspiration for a character in the book (eat your heart out Chef Bob!).
I’ve read a few iterations of the book, but they stopped coming my way when I mentioned I was saving them so I could eBay them later when she was famous. I can’t really blame her. Now I have my galley copy and a signed version of the hardcover. Smell ME!
Rebecca will be the first to admit that Nice to Come Home To might be considered a chick-lit piece, but at least it’s a good one. My blog audience is the perfect one for this book. I don’t think I have a lot of women reading this thing (well, Kris and Dity…….and Becca, of course), but I do have the gay men. And this is a story of lost love, finding oneself, dresses, cats and a man who may or may not be me. You’ll just have to buy and read it to find out. …..and no cheating by getting it from the liberry.
