Release Day!

My Fake Boyfriend is Better Than Yours hits bookstores today!! Yay!!!

What are my big huge plans for release day you wonder? Um, not much. Oh no, it's second baby syndrome! When my first book came out I partied all day! And now? Well, I'm so thrilled that it came out but I have a Mommy list a mile long to do today. Starting with weeping in the school parking lot because my baby girl started kindergarten. Oh wow, was that hard. But dang she looked adorable in her school uniform. Tomorrow she'll take the bus for the first time and I will of course follow the bus in my car. How long do you think I'll keep this up? Hmm. But back to the book. Yay, my sweet fun book is in stores! I will need to plan a visit to a Barnes and Nobles and take pics! And sign stock! And round out the day with my kettlebell class tonight. Ok seriously, my release day sounds kind of lame. Last year it was a spa day, with lunch out and cake. But that's all right, I love this second book just as much as the first! And tomorrow I will post the winner of the fake boyfriend so check back!

My Fake Boyfriend is Better Than Yours - Author copy!

Seeing the first finished new book is SO EXCITING!! It never gets old. It's just like holding your baby in your arms for the first time. Ok, I'm lying-- it's slightly less exciting than that. But isn't it so cute?

And I LOVE the inside flaps and I love how they show a picture of my first baby, I mean book, on the flap too.

And I really love the back! It looks like the back of a package for a fake boyfriend! The art department at FSG is so freakin' creative!

My Fake Boyfriend is Better Than Yours due date is 8/31/10 but who knows, I could go early. I am feeling crampy. Haha, ok enough with the baby jokes. But if you want to pre-order the book go here.

And in other fun news, I just sold foreign rights of The Espressologist to Russia. Yay! Hi Russian readers, hope you love The Espressologist!
