Happy Pub Day to Edges!

Dear Friends,

In honor of my publication day, I am taking an internet break. It is almost 10AM and I have been staring at the screen since the kids went off to school, and gotten frustrated because I can't figure out how to auto tweet. This is not what it's about, Ms. Roy, is it? Therefore, I have printed out another draft of my current WIP and my day will be comprised of lovingly laboring over my written word, and I will celebrate by taking a break and getting a professional pedicure. (Maybe I'll even go hog wild and get a matching manicure.)

You can help me celebrate by hounding your local bookseller - praise them for being awesomely on top of things if they're already stocking it, or kindly ask them to order it for you. Use your gift cards, discounts, what-have-you, and then read in public! At a café, on the train, walking down the street! Or read at home in your favorite spot (mine is under the covers). And if you can't get or don't have time for Edges yet, remind yourself about how much you love reading and writing, how story shapes us, uplifts us, makes us think . . . celebrate reading.

If you want to find out more about Edges or order it on-line, please check out my website for details! I link to Indiebound and Powell's, as well as all of the usual suspects.

And wish me luck on my internet break!




  1. Have a wonderful internet break, Lena! And happy Publication Day to you! :-) When you get back to the internet, if you're trying to figure out how to autotweet your blog, I just started using Twitterfeed. I'm not an expert, but if that's what you're looking to do, you might want to check it out. Now I'll be watching the mail since I ordered your book a while ago--and I'll hound the local booksellers, too! Bask in your success today!

  2. Congratulations on Publication Day! I am really excited for you, and so is everyone at Fantastic Spatula. Enjoy that pedicure, spring for the manicure, and celebrate your success; you deserve it all.

  3. Congrats! Congrats! See you Thurs! (And I really did dream about the Edges book party ... was at Books of Wonder, but it looked way different than it does in real life.) xo

  4. Alison - thank you! Twitterfeed had me posting my blog to Facebook instead of Twitter, Weird. Thank you in advance for hounding! Books these days need all the help they can get!

    Kristi - I sprung for a manicure too! Thank you so much for your support - I can't wait for you guys to read it!

    And Courtney! I can't wait to see you! You have been such an inspiration on this journey!

  5. Congratulations!! The book sounds wonderful - love the cover art.

  6. Thank you Demery! I must admit that I myself am smitten with the cover art!

  7. I am going to try to get your book soon from market even i am very busy in essay writing service job nowadays because i know you are very nice writer and you have something special in this book (Edges) for us.

  8. There are many other days which we can celebrate. But instead to enjoy the days we should to pay attention on our best assignment help work. After complete the study we can enjoy the whole life and everyday will be life holiday.
