I’d love to tell you that I had this planned all along, darlings — to release Volume One of the Memoirs into the world on April Fool’s Day — but alas, it just worked out that way.
Thank you so much to everyone who pre-ordered. I know some of you have already gotten your hands on your paperback copies, and those of you with e-readers have them loaded up on your iPads or Kindles or what-have-yous.
Please make sure that if you loved the book, to share a review of it on Amazon or Goodreads
Also, I’m working on a contest, the details of which are to follow, but here’s some food for thought for you: take some selfies of you reading Memoirs of a Dilettante — or, if you are TRULY brave, a short video of yourself doing your very best Helena or Penny impression while reading your favourite passage.
I’m going to think up a great prize for the most daring, and various rewards for anyone who sends in pictures and writes reviews!
In the meantime — for those of you who didn’t get a chance to pre-order, the book is now available in e-book and paperback from Amazon — the links below will take you to the Amazon in your region (** make sure to note that if the paperback is not available in your region, you may have to order it from Amazon.com or Amazon.co.uk)
One last thing: If you look to your right, there’s a widget there that says Get a free autograph for Memoirs of a … Authorgraph. This is something interesting I stumbled upon — it allows me to personalize your e-book. Now, I’ve no idea how it works, darlings, so if one of you out there with an e-book would be so kind as to try this out and let me know how it works, that’d just be lovely. It’s free, and I don’t think you need to sign up for an account or donate blood or anything, so…
Also, below that is my link to my Amazon store, that lovely button designed by Dana Thomas is actually a link, darlings — that’s where you’ll be able to buy the book/e-book from today on.
*** Note to Canadian customers – Amazon.ca is not carrying the paperback — yet.
***UPDATE FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO PRE-ORDERED PERSONALIZED COPIES – Guess what arrived today? I hope to have all your books out in the post by Saturday.
