A Change in the EVERNEATH Due Date... and I'm Giving Away a Surprise

Hey y'all.

I have an announcement. AN ANNOUNCEMENT!

Ahem: EVERNEATH will now be released January 24th, 2012. 

A few of you may have noticed the change on Mr. Widgy (on the sidebar) and I've had a couple people ask me about it, but I haven't had the all-clear to announce it officially until today. 




If you have Mr. Widgy on your own website, you'll notice they all automatically changed. 

The business reasons for the change are awesome! But I can't really go into them, except to say it means some bookstores are really excited about EVERNEATH. Not to be all cryptic or anything. 

And personally, I am looking forward to having a little more space between the holidays and my book launch. 

But it's always hard to wait. My editor ended her enthusiastic email with, "... and it's only three weeks later!" 

And on the outside, I was all, "That's nothing!"

But on the inside, I was all, "Do you know what could happen in three weeks? My nails could grow a quarter-inch! I could learn a new Zumba dance routine! The world could end!"

Although in reality, none of those things will probably happen, because three weeks is not very long, and I own a good pair of nail clippers. 

Now, on to the celebration, because we have officially passed the three-month mark! Again! And to make up for that cryptic "The reasons are awesome, but I can't talk about them" statement (because I really hate it when people do that) I am giving away an ARC of EVERNEATH.

Did you hear me? I'm giving away an ARC! From my own personal stash. 

To enter, simply leave me a comment in this post. One entry per person. No other hoops to jump through. 

So, be all, "Yay!" with me!

  7. A little sad that we don't get it as soon as possible, but glad it'll be easier for you for the extra time in between holidays and your book release! dying to read EVERNEATH, though! it sounds so, so good. :)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Totally all YAY! with you. Waiting three eternal weeks for a happy, awesome reason will be worth it. (So, yay!)

    ReplyDelete
  9. That has to make you feel extra special that bookstores are getting excited about Everneath. I think that'd qualify as a squeee moment.

    No pressure on you, of course.

  10. 3 weeks is definitely not that long, especially if it's for awesome (if cryptic) reasons!! Either way I'm psyched for Everneath! Thanks for the giveaway :0)

  21. When they change the date because bookstores are excited, that's a REALLY GOOD THING. And I say that as a bookseller. The more excited the booksellers get about something, the more we talk about it. Even to people who probably aren't interested, until we've talked about it so much they buy it just to shut us up and then find out they're really interested after all.

    So everyone wins. :D

    Cheers~

  27. I'm a little sad that the release date is three weeks later because I'll have to wait longer for book 2 now. But, I'm super EXCITED for all the awesome good reasons for the delay in release date and I'll trust your agent and you with those reasons! :)

    I wouldn't mind an ARC since I absolutely ADORE your book. So, add me into the pool. me(at)jennielyse(dot)com

  30. I'm so excited to read Everneath! I'm actually glad that the date has been moved because I can recover from the holidays before attending your launch party. (I'm assuming you're having one)

  31. I'm so excited to read this. After I added it to my goodreads list, a friend of mine said her sister read an ARC and ranted and raved about how amazing it is. Can't wait.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I would love a copy! In fact, I would probably even do the chicken dance in public to get a copy. Luckily for everyone, I don't think that's a requirement...

  33. You know, the first thing I thought was that the farther from Christmas your launch party is, the more copies of Everneath I can buy and give away. LOL

    Thanks for the giveaway :) I am looking forward to reading Everneath.

    Good luck on surviving those 3 extra weeks!

  35. I'm torn between excitement (more EVERNEATH promotion = good) and sadness (3 more weeks = bad). I'm sure my own ARC will make me feel better. ;)

    Oh, and my EVERNEATH review is up today. I go a little fangirl. Couldn't be helped.

  36. I hate to be a glutton--but I would love to have a copy of my own! Plus, you are making me wait three more weeks!

  38. I'm glad bookstores are super excited for the book--I know I am!! (Although, I'm a tad sad that I have to wait longer to buy it!) I would love to have a copy of Everneath sooner than my birthday (which is 2 days after the new release date). :)

  45. I love when you authors give away ARCs! It's like an overly excited parent at Christmas, giving the presents early because they just can't wait any longer to share the awesomeness, lol! And while I'm bummed the release got pushed back, at least I won't get in trouble with the Husband for ditching him for his birthday to come to your release party! ;)

  102. To commemorate this momentous occasion, I have stopped procrastinating on something I've been meaning to do ever since I saw your widget. I've added it to my blog. So now, I can countdown and laugh like a hyena when I read your posts here, OR, I can countdown and make funny faces at my own blog posts. Either way, I'm keeping up with the date! YAY!!!!

    By the way, don't know what this awesome, super duper secret reason is or reasons are - is there a grammatically correct way to say that at all? - but, Everneath shall be here soon. And we shall all have a wonderful day reading and making merry.

  113. Woo-hoo! for awesome secret reasons for delays. Bummer that we have to wait three whole weeks...do you know how many times I could pull a muscle or get a debilitating cramp at the gym in three weeks? And if we have to do cart wheels in boot camp class that number like quadruples...I was not built to tumble. I was more not built to cart wheel. Even the instructor laughs when I try and she's paid not to (fortunately we're friends, so it's not a big deal...until I pull something. Then it hurts a lot.).

    Oh and, woo-hoo for a contest!

I'm excited for the undisclosed reasons for the delay, excited that the bookstores are excited about your book--yay!--excited to finally read your book, but even more excited about the possibility of reading Everneath early :) Also, I'd love to give my kid a copy for Christmas. Pick me, please!

  118. The change in release date is sort of good, because Australia isn't releasing it until early March and at least that's one month less that I have to endure my moans of despair while seeing all the lucky US readers dive into this bad boy novel before I do. Unless I screw Aussie pride and order online, which is sounding ridiculously appealing right now!

    Also: I WOULD VERY MUCH LIKE TO OWN THAT ARC YOU HAVE RIGHT THERE. Pretty please. And thank you :)

    ReplyDelete
  119. it is a little sad but i still want it BADLY. so you know, hopefully i'll just get an ARC. (hah that never happens but we'll give it a go). so my email is maiaov@hotmail.com. wish me luck!
