I’ve got so much to fill you in on!
As my last post said, my book is already out. Kind of. The original release date was set for July 15th, but the Kindle edition came out a full week ahead of that. I was pleasantly surprised! It took almost a full twenty-four hours for me to stop looking at the page every fifteen minutes and going “oh, my goodness! I’m on Amazon!” However, the paperback is only available for pre-order. It won’t be available until July 19th. I guess that averages to July 15th as an overall release date. 😉
Regardless, I’m spending this weekend getting ready for my book-signing road trip! I’m going to be gone for a week, which brings me to the next part of my post title: great neighbors. Getting ready for a road trip can be stressful. Thankfully, courtesy of my awesome neighbors, I don’t have to worry about leaving my house. I know that they’ll watch out to make sure that nobody tries anything shady with my property while I’m gone. And four of them offered to watch our cat for us! That’s why I don’t know if I’d ever want to move away from here. Houses can be built or remodeled, but you can’t buy neighbors as good as the ones we have. I’m so grateful.
As for my new schedule: I’m going to be gone for a week, and I’m sure I’m going to have a few hectic days before I leave and after I get back. I’m not going to be blogging during that time. I’m sorry. 😦 However, I invite you to friend me on Facebook, or follow me on Twitter @KatieLeaYates. I’ll be posting pictures and little snippets of the trip while I’m gone, and I’d love for you to be able to be a part of that! I’ll blog about them after I get back, of course, but you’ll probably see more of them on my Facebook and Twitter feeds.
Thank you all for the warm thoughts and enthusiasm about my book and my first few signings. I’ll see you soon!
