Book Tour!!!!

Well, STAY will be on the shelves ONE WEEK FROM THIS THURSDAY!!! And I plan to go to visit my bookseller buddies on June 10th to buy a copy of STAY, even though I have a copy (because how could I not?). And yes, I will probably cry and embarrass myself when I see my book on the shelf (because how could I not?).

One week from Friday (June 11th) is the kick off of my book tour! I'll be doing events in:
  • Rochester, NY
  • Seattle, WA
  • Holland, MI
  • Denver, CO
  • Hamilton, NY
  • Syracuse, NY
  • Poughkeepsie, NY
Check out the events page on the website for full event details! I'm so excited, and I hope I'll get to see you while I'm traveling around this summer! What is a book tour if not a wonderful way to finally meet blog friends in person!

Friday was a truly incredible day. I got an e-mail with the subject line "ALLIE -- BUY A COPY OF PEOPLE MAG!!!!!"

STAY made the book section of People Magazine!!!

So, of course, I ran out to Wegmans and bought a handful of copies. And I then sat in my car and e-mailed pictures of it to J.



Then I remembered that we were out of milk and had nothing for lunch, so I had to go back in. But I have to say, running back in for milk didn't dampen the excitement of seeing Argo & the STAY cover in People Magazine or reading that People called STAY a feel-good debut! Not even a little bit.

Sending big high fives your way. That must be such a great feeling to see your book on the shelves (and in People mag!). Congrats! :)

This is so wonderfully exciting. I tried to stop by oblong to see if they had it in stock yesterday, but they weren't open yet.

Hope to get my copy before the big Poughkeepsie signing!

Wow, People magazine! That is so cool! Congratulations!

Holy cow!!! Gurl, this is amazing and it's going to get even more press when everyone starts reading it.

Um, I don't see NYC on your tour list. A simple oversight, I'm sure.

So thrilled to see that you're coming to Seattle, Allie! I'll be there!

Amazing! I can't wait to see you at the end of the month (pending you don't get booked for a signing!) to congratulate you in person!

That's awesome!!! I'm going to go claim my copy tomorrow, and I'm going to read the whole thing as fast as possible!! Then I'm going to give it to my mom to read while she's in town next week. Can't wait!

Query Contest

Congratulations on your much deserved success! I loved that your query actually described what the story was about - instead of vague words like "fate," "destiny," and such. I only hope that I could craft such a great elevator pitch someday.
