Oh, I SO love good news!

See that beeeee-yooou-ti-ful book cover there beside this entry? Well, that just happens to be the debut YA book of a friend of mine, the best plot-hole-puncher in the known universe, Nelsa Roberto. She got her real, honest-to-goodness author copies this week. Squee!

I feel rather attached to Illegally Blonde. I saw it in its raw and unshaped form (which looked pretty darn-tootin' good to me even then.) I saw it before she got her agent, before she got her publishing deal. I knew it was a great book then, and I can ASSURE you that it is a wonderful book now.

Illegally Blonde is available for pre-order at Barnes & Noble (and pick up a cool 5% discount, just like yours truly), and all your usual on-line book outlets. It's officially on sale and available March 30.

It's also available via that dying breed, your independent book seller. (I say "your" because I do not have an independent book seller available to me.") I so wish these guys weren't going the way of the Dodo (but that is another blog post entirely.)

Go. Pre-order. Now.

Well? What are you waiting for?!

Cynthia, thank you! I should hire you as my publicist! You are a real live Georgia sweetie. Thanks for all your support for all these years. You did, indeed, see it way back when. I still can't quite believe Illegally Blonde has finally made it to print. Wish you were closer so we could squee together in person!

Adding this to my TBR pile right now! Thanks for letting me know about it!

Nelsa, The Husband says I suck at PR, so, ahem, you'd probably fire me. But yay! B&N says that they're shipping my order! Your book is winging its way to me!
