Okay remember that book I mentioned yesterday that I just started? It was “so far so good”. Well. It is. BUT. That has been set aside temporarily (I will be getting back to it ASAP) because something that I’ve been waiting for for what. A year? More? Virtually manifested itself in my life last night.
I feel so bad to be such a tease… I really really do. But you guys know if I’m already teasing, it’s ’cause I’m already loving it. Of course, I’m only at 40-something (50?) percent, but *nods*… totally my thing so far. And y’all only have a couple of days left to wait, anyway, since it’ll be released on Friday!! And it’s available for pre-order.
PLUS! I’ll have a big release announcement post AND a few more AWESOME giveaways and of course, my review expected on Friday. Some very good surprises.
In the meantime, here I am at work, thinking non-stop about how badly I want to get back to my book. And I mean badly. I’m dying to know where she is going to take us. Oh right! What book? Why, Tina Reber’s Love Unrehearsed (book #2), of course!!
Tee hee!!! I ruined the surprise by putting that book cover up there, didn’t I? Oh right. And the title of the book as the subject… Er… *blush* haha! A little too obvious? Humor me. Pretend you’ve been on the edge of your seat wondering what it was, you know … “go with it!” 😉
So… for those of you who aren’t familiar with this… series, (or for now…”duet”), let me take you on a look back to book #1 —> Love Unscripted).
You see… once upon a time I fell in love with a gorgeous actor (well, everyone was in love with him, you know how that goes). But anyway… I was just working, doing my thing, chatting with the locals who were in a frenzy over the movie crew in our town, and you guessed it. Said movie star “It” boy, Ryan Christensen was here!!!
Imagine my surprise when early the next day, as I was preparing my bar for the evening, he came tearing down my street, trying to escape some seriously crazed fans!! I had to help. I just did (an act of selflessness… not for any “other reasons” I assure you. 😉 ) I gave him an escape plan. Couldn’t leave him there like that. So I let him into my (unopened) bar, locked the door and let him hide out while we were still closed. And that set us on our way to an amazing friendship… a connection that could not be denied. Every woman’s dream, but let me tell you, it certainly had it’s moments of not-so-dreamy reality. Even a little nightmarish at times. And this is where I take you on my journey. My apprehension, all the surreal fantasy-like moments, becoming my life. The bumps in the road, and you know… as with all amazing, heart-wrenching stories, perhaps there was even a full-on train wreck.
Oh wait. That wasn’t me at all!!!! Riiiiigggght. It was Taryn!!!! It’s her story. *whoops* 😉 You know I get carried away with these stories some times… When they are written like this, I become one with the heroine. She becomes me. I become her. And I fall for, and fret, for and freak-out over… everything, with her. And I totally did, with this one. I was sucked into Love Unscripted (book #1) and have been chomping at the bit for Love Unrehearsed (book #2) ever since. By the way – it will be out this Friday September 14th, 2012, so if you’re in the mood for a love affair between a “normal” girl and a Hollywood movie star, get reading. 😉
Oh! My review of book #1: Book Review – Love Unscripted by Tina Reber (and it made a few of my “favorites lists”)
Okay so let’s talk about that giveaway!! (this is giveaway #1 – we have more to come…)
Who wants a “bound manuscript-like” SIGNED copy of the first chapter of LOVE UNREHEARSED with that awesome cover and everything!? It’s a sort of… “advanced look” booklet. The publisher has FIVE of these exclusive, limited edition sneak peeks for five lucky winners!
How to enter to win one? Just leave a comment below, and by Thursday, September 13th 2012 at 10pm EST, I will randomly select 5 winners. The winners will be contacted and will have 48hrs to respond with a mailing address. I need to have the winner’s information sent to the publisher shortly after that (as per their deadline), so if you are picked, do not delay or you will lose your chance.
Here’s a suggestion. If you want to enter to win the book, leave your comment, and you may also pre-send me your mailing address, by email, in case you do win (please don’t post it in your comment). In a couple of my past giveaways, there were some issues with getting the mailing address on time, and we almost didn’t make the deadline, so to avoid this, if I pick your name, and I already have your address, then all is good. Contest open to US or Canadian mailing addresses only. (but you’re welcome to comment and join in any time!!).
