1. Thank you all so, so, so much for making THE NEAR WITCH’s release and the tour and everything in the misty space around both an absolute adventure.
I am still floating on the seas of excitement and sleep deprivation.
2. The tour!
It was amazing, and exhausting, and amazing, and terrifying, and did I mention amazing?
It was a homegrown tour, meaning Beth, Myra and I planned, organized, executed, and funded it all ourselves. The 8 stops and travel ended up costing each of us about $200, and I tell you that because we were lucky enough to get a good deal of notice, but also a good deal of “well, your pubs took care of everything, so…”
That’s simply not the case. Six months of hard work, planning, enthusiasm, and a lot of luck resulted in Ash 2 Nash’s success. We got featured in PW three times, had the opportunity to pick up guest authors at several stops, and were awed by the amount of enthusiasm from the online community.
You all made that tour.
[insert nervous laughter here]
4. The Launch Party!
Because the Ash 2 Nash tour kicked off the day after NW hit shelves, the official narwhal and cakepop-laden launch party is THIS Saturday, from 5-7pm. You should come because, well, I ordered too many cakepops.
5. THANK YOU AGAIN.
This concludes this episode of “V is so tired she can hardly string sentences together.”
