Here I am standing in front of the Paris Opéra that I painted, not realizing that it would grace the cover of A PARIS YEAR, my new book that came out TODAY.
Launch Day for an author is a Big. Fat. Deal. It’s the day when all the pre-orders become all the sold orders for this one day. Hopefully that catapults a book to super stardom, and I’m happy to say that of all the books on France on Amazon, this one landed here:
And that pole position of #1, my friend, is because of YOU. Unless you didn’t pre-order the book, but you still have time… until the end of this day, June 20th. Then any sale after this day is very good but not AS GOOD.
Also after this day I will quit begging you to buy the book already. But until midnight, I’d like to remind you that it makes a great Christmas present, even though it’s June and I’m sweating in my sundress as we consider winter gift giving.
Remember back when I was writing this book and announced the other big project I was working on?
Now look at her:
Imbibing with mommy.
Perhaps this is a better view:
Imbibing with daddy.
Speaking of daddy, she learned how to blow kisses on Father’s Day. How cute is that? And today, big launch day, she has given mommy the gift of an extra long nap so I can send out this Launch Day message to you:
Thanks for buying the book you wonderful human.
And if you haven’t bought the book yet, please for the love of Dieu, do it today. Here’s a handy list of where you can buy the book.
And thank you once again for making A PARIS YEAR a success. And for showing up here to read all about it.
