okay, then! And 1000

Tuesday, April 24, 2012

Well, I go to write my blog post this morning and okay, the whole interface has changed! Did Google give a heads-up about this, or did they just change it? Either way, it's very...new. I don't know if I like it or not yet. Anyone else with a blog on blogger? What do you think? New interface or old? (Also! last week's contest winners have been notified, and thanks to everyone who entered!)

I also want to talk about something else. I promised myself when I started blogging again I'd post more than just industry info and the occasional food link, but I gotta say, being honest is hard.

But I did promise, so--here goes.

I've been reading about Veronica Roth's 35,000 pre-order push (and yes, I pre-ordered Insurgent--I did the second it showed up for sale! I mean, Divergent was blow-your-mind awesome!) (and yes, the Four POV short was awesome!) and I thought, a. I want Four's story and b. what a fabulous way to make sure that your first week sales are going to be great! (My guess is, number 1 on the Times list and pretty high up on the USA Today list as well)

So, I'm aiming for 1,000 pre-orders of Miracle. Will you help me? You can pre-order the book from your local indie bookstore, Amazon, or Barnes and Noble.

I should add the book is less than a dollar more than the pb will cost (on Amazon and B&N) and that Miracle is the only book I have coming out this year.

Felt the same way about them changing the format to blogger... UGH...It was VERY annoying that they didn't even say anything and it took me a while to get used to the new set up!! So you are not alone in the "NOT LIKING" the new blogger!!

And yes...I did pre-order the book on Amazon...so count me in!!

Done! I pre-ordered Miracle months ago, and just finished the ARC earlier this week, thanks for passing my info along to your publisher! I'm hoping to get a review up in a few days, to help with your pre-pub push!

And no, I did not pre-order Insurgent, as much as I loved Divergent, and am looking forward to it. Oops.

I'll be blunt and tell you that I absolutely HATE Blogger's new dashboard (and everything else they did to it) works. Especially since they redid the way you post a blog too which is VERY annoying. So, I've already sent them a complaint basically telling them that I hope they'll keep the old layout since I don't plan on switching, at least if I don't have too. =0/
