I’m super excited about my spiffy new website (http://www.minalhajratwala.com) and lots of exciting events coming up in March and April! Please come by and say hi if you’re in NY, DC, LA, or SF, and invite your friends too.
I am staying very busy, counting down to launch date… Today I heard from my editor that the finished, hardcover, REAL books are in her hands. How exciting! I haven’t even seen one yet. They ship out from the warehouse today, on their way to bookstores all over the country, getting ready for the launch date of March 18!
People have been asking me how they can get a signed copy of the book, and I’m so grateful to the wonderful people at my neighborhood independent bookstore, the Booksmith, for setting up a nifty way for friends and readers anywhere to get a signed, personalized copy. Basically you order online with a credit card (http://booksmith.com/autograph.html), send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or call them at 1-800-493-7323, tell them how many books you want and how you want them personalized. Then I drop by the store and sign your copy just the way you want it. They send it to you or the person you designate, with free gift wrapping upon request! This is a wonderful way to support not only me, but also independent publishing. Order before March 3 for quickest results.
I also want to send out mega thanks to Justin Emerson for doing such an amazing job wrangling all of my non-techie ideas into a beautiful website. Hope you enjoy browsing around, and let me know what you think. Feedback, etc., more than welcome.
