I couldn’t be happier about kicking off my blog tour. The love you guys are showing for How We Fall makes it all worth it– yes, even the stress dreams and late nights and all these debut-author nerves. Release week is almost here! The launch party is 3 weeks from today, and don’t forget– you’re invited!
But yes! My blog tour started this weekend. Here’s the round-up of How We Fall across the internet:
a guest post from me on Adventures in YA Publishing, where I talk about how editors and authors see the book, the edit letter, and deadlines: Across the Desk–Thoughts from An Author-Editor
“Jackie’s life is complicated. Her best friend is missing, she lives in a house with too many people and too little space, and she is secretly dating her cousin. Jackie has two tasks. She must break up with her cousin and simultaneously solve the mystery of her missing friend, making this novel an unusual combination of romance and suspense. Brauning is not the first author to delve into this taboo subject matter—most famously, there is Meg Rosoff’s How I Live Now (2004). But there is also something universal about Jackie’s struggles with her feelings and her desires, and readers will identify with her emotions, while going along for the plot’s ride. This quest for identity, wrapped up in an intriguing mystery, hooks from the beginning.”
and finally, my publishing house launched a Goodreads giveaway of 25 hardcovers! Want a copy? You can win one!
And of course, my brand-new author website launched recently, too. It’s at www.katebrauning.com, and it has the first chapter of How We Fall, plus website-only extras, and a nice long new author bio that took me forever to write. 🙂 I’d love it if you stopped by the site and said hello!
The last bit of news is that my author hardcovers came! Aren’t they gorgeous? Holding the final copy of my very first book was a crazy moment.
