Today is THE VEIL’s official release date, and I couldn’t be more excited!!
The overwhelming emotion I am feeling right now is gratitude. It takes an unbelievable number of people to make a book possible, and I’d like to take a moment to express my profound thanks to a select few who have been with me from the start – today is just as much their day as mine!
Lee Klancher at Octane Press – for taking a chance on an unknown – and yikes, teenage – book and for continuing to believe that if we just get people to read it, it’ll go far!
Susannah Greenberg (of Susannah Greenberg Public Relations – http://bookbuzz.com/), my amazing publicist who got the book into the hands of advance reviewers across the country (and beyond) and whose sage wisdom and advice could fill several books of her own.
The forty individuals – book reviewers, book bloggers, and teenagers – who took the time to read advance copies of The Veil and make their opinions known. I have been living for your reviews these past several months and I have thoroughly enjoyed reading every word you had to say about my baby (er, my book). Thank you for giving it such a fabulous start. (You can read all of the reviews for yourself here on the Press Page and also on my Goodreads page)
Rhonda Helms, Leah Cochenet Noel, Tom Heffron and David Brady who are responsible, respectively, for making The Veil grammatically correct, error-free, professional and pretty!
My husband, Mark, and my daughter, Sophia, for loaning me out to this Business of Book and not minding (much) when I sometimes just have to tweet about it during family time.
Whether The Veil ever ends up on a bestseller list or not (fingers crossed – ya never know!) I will forever be proud of us for creating something that is fun, unique and which people seem to genuinely enjoy curling up with and reading.
Congratulations to us all on a job well done!
PS – I hope to see everybody at The Veil Launch Event on November 10 at Book People! For more info, click HERE.
