It’s MWF Seeking BFF Day!

Oh my gosh. It’s really here. MWF Seeking BFF is in stores now. Today. I can’t believe it! There is a serious stomach butterfly situation going on right now, and I’m thinking the only way to calm it is a Friends mini-marathon. Naturally.

One question many potential readers have asked me is whether the book is just a compilation of blog posts. The answer is no. Definitely not.

The blog, as you all know, has my daily musings about friendship in all its forms. The book is specifically about my yearlong search. Yes, sometimes I refer to incidents on this blog that are recounted in the book. And the book has research peppered in, a la Research Wednesday.

But MWF Seeking BFF, the book, is a narrative. It’s a story with a beginning, middle and end (and hopefully some laughs in between). MWF Seeking BFF, the blog, is less linear. It’s a friendship forum, you might say

Anyway, if you pass your local bookstore today, won’t you pop in to pick up a copy of MWF Seeking BFF? And if they don’t have it, request it?  If they do have it, and it’s out for the world to see, maybe email me a picture? Because honestly, I have to see it to believe it.

If you want, you can also read an excerpt. Or check out the latest press coverage. Or watch the book trailer. Or just save yourself the winter weather and order a copy online. Whatever works.

There’s absolutely no question that the best thing to come out of my 52 friend-dates is my new circle of friends. In fact, I got so lucky that my friends might be the 20 best things! But this book lands firmly at number 21. And being the 21st best thing? That’s awesome.

Thanks everyone for all your support of MWF Seeking BFF. I honestly can’t get over how lucky I’ve been to have such awesome readers.

Here’s to new friends!

  1. Congratulations!

    I was VERRRRRRRRRRYYYYYY excited this morning when my Kindle book delivered :) So much so that I was 15 minutes late for work as I just had to start reading.

    Am enjoying immensely :)

  2. Congratulations!!! :-)

    I’m going to get your book on my Kindle this weekend (since the Kindle is a Christmas present that I don’t technically have yet), and can’t wait to read it! And hear you read it next month!

  3. Congratulations! I am waiting for the book to come in through Amazon. I preordered it a few weeks ago. Continued success with the book and the tour.

    Hi Rachel,

    First off, congratulations… as an author myself, I know how exciting it can be to see one’s book published. You must be over the moon right now.

    Anyway… just to let you know… my local library here in Ohio has 10 copies of your book ordered.

  5. You must be so excited today…Congrats!
    I got an email yesterday from Amazon that my pre-order was en route.
    Can’t wait to start reading and see you at your reading on Jan. 9th.
    I loved the Post review. Keep ‘em coming.
    Good luck.

    Yay! Congrats! I am eagerly awaiting my copy. Unfortunately, I think I preordered your book along with another book that isn’t available until next week. Aaargh! I suppose I can wait another week. : (

    They are ordering several copies for our library system, and there are currently 22 holds on it. I have put a hold on it too, so I guess I’m # 23 in line for it. Can’t wait to read it.

    I’m stopping by my indie store this week to buy it! I feel like I’ve been waiting so long for this book – I can’t imagine how you must feel. CONGRATS!

  9. Congratulations Rachel!!! I’m so proud of you! Let’s have a friend date soon!

  10. Congratulations!!! :-)
    I would like to have a copy of this.

    I started listening to the audio book today – I didn’t even know this book existed, but it was featured on Audible.com! So far so good – and you have a very well designed book cover. I will resist the urge to add an emoticon as you have covered your distaste for that early on in the book.

    • Thanks Samantha! I’m so glad you found the book. And for an occasion like this, even I warm up to emoticons. I feel like I have no choice these days! Thanks again for listening to the book — and checking out the cover. I feel so lucky to have ended up with such a well designed cover!

    Just finished the book, I loved every page. I sent a copy to my BFF who recently moved away and we read it together. I was most moved by your ability to find words to describe the magic of these relationships. Can’t wait for your next book, continued success.

    • Thank you so much! I’m so thrilled you enjoyed MWF Seeking BFF and hope you’ll spread the word. I’m especially touched by what you say about finding the words to describe these relationships… It’s so strange that there’s no real vocabulary for close friendship and making new friends, so I really appreciate the compliment! Thanks again and happy holidays!

    Reading your book right now. Its been a page turner because I have been going through the same thing for the past 4 years. Its nice to know I’m not the only one who feels like I am missing something in my life.

    • Thanks Kimberly! I’m so glad you are enjoying the book. And no, you are most definitely not alone! It’s so hard, and there are so many of us in the same boat, I’ve learned. Thanks again for reading!
