With less than a week until the official release of The Trajectory of Dreams, time is moving both slow and fast. It seems kind of weird to say that, but it’s true. I feel like I have a million things to do but not a lot of time to do them, yet at the same time I feel like I’m in a good place in terms of tasks, and every day is dragging.
Perception is a bizarre thing.
Today–on my forty-first birthday–Amazon put the novel up for pre-order, so that was a nice surprise. Barnes & Noble, where Trajectory has been available for pre-order for months, prettied up the listing by adding the cover image. And this morning at dragon boat practice, I was thrilled to hear that many of my teammates had pre-ordered the novel not just from online shops, but from independent bookstores. That’s some love right there!
There’s a lot of great stuff coming up in March and April to celebrate the launch of the novel. Beginning March 3 is a three week long virtual book tour, during which I’m giving away copies of The Trajectory of Dream, astronaut rubber duckies, signed postcards and bookmarks, cookie cutters, manuscript critiques, Amazon gift certificates, keychains, and three very awesome items donated by Pickle & Ollie, Patrick Smith Botanicals, and Alexia Traders. You can get the whole schedule here or on the events calendar.
Beyond that, there’ll be special guest posts and interviews at Necessary Fiction and World of Writing, not to mention a few signings and readings in April–April 6 at The Wise Owl Bookstore in West Reading, PA and April 20 at Farley’s in New Hope, PA.
There might be some events added, so be sure to keep an eye out on the events calendar! Whew! I think maybe I should be resting up for the whirlwind of March and April!
