A friend just emailed: Is it as exciting as the first time?
Although there is nothing quite like the first time, I woke up this morning and thought, with a big grin, PUB DAY!
It's such a miraculous thing!
I'm still in Mexico, so I can't see it in bookstores in Canada and the U.S. If you see it, send me a photo (sgulland AT sandragulland DOT com) and I'll post it here.
Here is the link to the newsletter I sent out yesterday: http://bit.ly/NewsletterApr72014
I've emailed the winner of THE SHADOW QUEEN (always fun).
And, as well, all that usual Social Media stuff: thumbs up, likes, re-tweets and tweets! It's a noisy type of day.
But most of all, I hope you buy THE SHADOW QUEEN, or get it out of the library. I hope you read it. And if you love Claudette and her eccentric tribe, chat it up. Word-of-mouth is still the most powerful promotion there is.
