Off to a roaring good start!!!

We were just about to sit down and post a little letter of explanation--

We wanted to tell you a bit about how this blog will work, how we'll be SUPER organized, allotting exactly one week to the launch of each new book (so that everyone gets their moment in the sun). We wanted to describe how we plan to follow a careful outline, beginning each launch week with a Monday "virtual release party" and proceeding with a tell-all author interview, followed by cool posts that include ridiculous pictures, deep dark secrets, and games and contests...

But then Lisa Schroeder did this cool interview over at Authorlink. So even though she isn't "scheduled" for another two weeks, we're blogging her today

Just a little extra sumpin sumpin for Lisa, and her book, I Heart You, You Haunt Me.


(Oh, and in other news, we got a few new links! From Beatrice, Becky's Book Reviews, Hip Writer Mama Thanks, guys!!!)

Awesome interview, Lisa! What a powerful feeling you must have had for the words to pour out of you that quickly. Internal censor, who?

I'm going to check to see if I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME is at my bookstore today...hey, you never know, sometimes books show up early and now I'm impatient to read it.

I checked at Powells and Borders over the weekend, and it wasn't there yet. The Borders computer said, On it way or something like that. :)

It was fun for me to read a little bit from my editor - that was nice of him to participate in the interview!

Good luck Class of 2K8. I'm excited to see how you all do things differently. What it will yield etc... The group collabo thing is so organic. I'm sure your year will be as interesting as ours.

Much success.

Yay, Lisa! I can't wait to read it! :)

I'm delighted to see the 2K8 website is live! I found one tiny problem -- your google calendar events blog does not show events to readers such as me, who do not have the appropriate permissions.

Might I recommend that you at least put the release dates of all your books on the calendar, and make them readable by the general public?

I run a blog called Fantasy Debut, and you guys have given me lots of books to put on my debut calendar.

I'm so behind with my online life - but yes, great interview because it shows your determination to succeed, Lisa.
So empowering!
Congrats. I can't wait to read your book.

Great interview, Lisa! Any book that pours out of an author like that must be a fantastic read. Can't wait! Hmmm.....I wonder if my local B&N has I HEART YOU, YOU HAUNT ME. I'll check tomorrow.
