Not Your Typical Release Day Announcement!!!!!!!!

So rather than just saying: CONGRATS, IT'S YOUR RELEASE DAY, I've decided to tell you about the amazing author behind this spectacular release!

Today is the debut of my friend, Mandy Hubbard, author extraordinaire, and her fantastic book PRADA & PREJUDICE. I'm not just going to tell you about the book (which you should totally run out and buy. Now!), instead I'm going to steer you toward, as Lisa and Laura call it, some writer porn. Check out Mandy's post on how she got to this point. (Remember that poster from back in the day? The one with the little kitten clinging to the branch that reads "HANG IN THERE, BABY?" Well that's Mandy's story!)

On top of all of her uber-persistence, she also lives right down the street from me. Literally. We lunch together!!! And she's SO cool I can't even tell you! I wish I could share a little bit of her with each of you. (Oh wait, I can, it's called PRADA & PREJUDICE! See, how subliminal I am???)

If you happen to be in the area on Friday June 19th, you should totally check out her book launch at Linden Books in Enumclaw and you can get your copy of PRADA signed. I'll be there, cheering Mandy on!

Oh yeah, and...

CONGRATS, MANDY, IT'S YOUR RELEASE DAY!!!!!!

(Sorry, I couldn't help myself.)

AWWW! Kim! Thank you! I can't wait to celebrate in person with drinks. And I am SO THERE when THE BODY FINDER leaps off the shelf onto unsuspecting readers.

If it doesn't leap, I'll just throw it at them. :-P
