There will be no in-person signings for several reasons. We are still a bit wary of pandemic, as we now have Monkeypox in our county, there are numerous travel delays, and our time is better spent writing Sweep of the Heart so we can keep up with FrInnDay. Just as an aside, if we ever did something else, like an Arabella short story, on Fridays, would it still be FrInnDay?
We are not going to see you in person but we are doing a large virtual tour. Now we are going to turn the blog over to Mod R.
There will be the usual book discussion and spoiler post available on release day, please try to not comment spoilers until then on the blog- you can send your early questions to Mod R at email@example.com.
Hi, Mod R here. A few clarifications before we get to the schedule:
Zoom is a video-conferencing software, which you can sign up for here: ZOOM (it is free). You do not need a camera or microphone as a guest, only us and the moderators will be on video. Zoom is a good program but it’s not meant to host very large gatherings, so the stops on our tour will ask you to please register in advance.
Reddit is a discussion website. Posts are organized by subject into user-created forum boards called “communities” or “subreddits”. We will be doing an AMA (ask me anything) hosted by the r/romancebooks subreddit, lasting 2 hours. You will need to have a Reddit account if you wish to ask questions in the AMA post, but you can read the comments on the forum without one. We will post the direct link to the relevant thread closer to the date.
If you would like to own a signed copy of Ruby Fever for your collection (and support an independent bookstore in the process) you can order through the Blue Willow Bookshop. If you have any questions or want to enquire about international delivery, please contact Cathy directly at firstname.lastname@example.org . Please also contact them first if you are local and want to go hunt for your early copy, in order to avoid disappointment. NOTE: “Signed book” in this case means a book with a signed bookplate sticker. Personalization is unfortunately not possible, as the bookplates are sent in advance to avoid delays in shipping.
If you lose the link to our virtual book tour, you can access it from our homepage, right above the release counter for RUBY FEVER.
Unfortunately, we have to end on a warning note: a fraud ring impersonating well-known authors is sending direct messages and comments on social media relating to fake book giveaways.
There are no planned giveaways on any of our social media accounts. Giveaways will only be announced and held here on the official website. Neither us nor Mod R will use social media messaging to contact our fans or to solicit money. No money will ever exchange hands for a giveaway. Please be vigilant.
