The Ramblers hits shelves TOMORROW. To prepare, I’m doing a few things.
1. I’m re-reading the book.
To remember the details of the story. Yes, I wrote it, but it’s been some time since I’ve immersed myself in the world of my protagonists. Middle Girl caught me in the act last night. See above.
2. Finding – and re-gramming – the book in the wild.
I’ve been collecting, and posting, wonderful pictures of my book in the wild. See some examples below. Starting tomorrow, many more of you will have the book (yay!) and I hope you will snap some pics and tag me (@adonnrowley) and also use the hashtags #theramblersbook and #theramblers2016. Seeing my book in other people’s feeds makes me happy and lends a bit of calm to my less-than-calm self.
3. Asking my kids for advice.
Speaking of calm, as I was waiting for the school bus this morning with my big girls, I reminded them that my book is out tomorrow and I asked if they had any sage advice on this eve of publication. Oh, and they did!!
Get a cake with The Ramblers on it!
Take the cats to Book Culture!
Look in the mirror and make muscles to remember how strong you are!
Get extra copies of your book and give them to people so if you feel like you can’t read, someone else can read and you can just move your lips!
If you are really nervous, just go outside and run away!
Tomorrow, guys!!! Thanks SO much for all your love and support so far. I will be back tomorrow with a pub day note.
