3, 2, 1...RELEASE DAY!!!!!!!


I can’t believe that today is actually THE DAY!!!!! After waiting forever, it’s finally here, and more than anything I just want to thank you guys, ALL OF YOU! Your support and comments have meant more to me than I can tell you…I seriously have the best group of followers (friends) ever. EVER!!!!

So, what am I doing this momentous day??? The kids are skipping school and we’re going bookstore stalking, and maybe hunting for the perfect dessert, what else? (I’ll share pics later!)

I just want to remind you all that if you live in the Seattle/Tacoma area, you should come down to my book release party this weekend, it’s gonna be (as the kids say) off-the hook! Okay, the kids don’t really say that, but it totally will be!!!

Where: BORDERS (near the Tacoma Mall)
When: Saturday, March 20th at 2:00PM
What: Books, Fun, Food, Prizes


I know not everyone can make the party, but you can still do some things to make the launch of THE BODY FINDER a huge success:

- Buy THE BODY FINDER!

- Tell everyone you meet to buy THE BODY FINDER. Word of mouth means EVERYTHING!!!

- Review THE BODY FINDER and post your reviews on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. Good reviews are even better ;)

- Give THE BODY FINDER as a gift to the teens (and adults) you know. Books make GREAT gifts!

- If it’s not at your local bookstore, request it! (From what I hear, bookstores love to sell books so I'm sure they'd be happy to oblige.)

- Recommend THE BODY FINDER to your school or public library and ask that they order it for their shelves.

- Blog about THE BODY FINDER or me or both.

- Use THE BODY FINDER in your book club.

- Oh, and did I mention you should buy THE BODY FINDER???


Seriously, you guys, thank you so much for everything! You rock!

Miss Dormer said...

I bought the Body Finder =)
And since I can't make it out to any official events because I live far off in Toronto-I am having a Body Finder theme girl's night. Complete with book-cover blue desserts and drinks! =) Woot!

They are excited about the book too and most of them will be getting a copy in the next few weeks

I Heart Monster said...

Congrats!! :o) We bought a copy! And if we love it, we'll gift it!

Little Ms J said...

I'm bringing my copy with me to Scottsdale so you can sign it and say something sassy about how I'm your inspiration and such. No? Well, something adorable, I'm sure.

So proud of you!

Book Monster said...

I tried buying it, but all my book stores don't have it :( I was really depressed :( But if they don't have it by next week, I'll buy it off of Book Depository!!

Congrats on your release,Kim. I bought it last week so I guess it must have been out early in some stores. I just want to thank you for making jury duty bearable this week! Your book was amazing and made time fly. I'm hoping that Desires of the Dead is a continuation of Violet's story.
All best,

Book Monster - That sucks! I hope you asked them to order it ;)

Congrats on the release. I look forward to reading this book. Do you know if I can still get the book signed at the release party if I buy it anywhere but Borders?

Kimberly Derting said...

Hey Anonymous - You can *definitely* bring your book to the launch, it doesn't have to be one you bought from Borders. Hope to see you there!!!
