In anticipation of the release of Jennifer, Gwyneth & Me, I sent an email this morning to friends, family and supporters of my first book, MWF Seeking BFF. But then, I realized, you guys are, like, my biggest supporters out there. You are the people who have cheered me on as I stumbled through friend-dating, and chime in when I post random celebrity musings on this blog. You are, simply put, the best.
So, since you all fulfill the role of supportive friend as much as anyone I might meet for coffee, I figured I’d post this note to you, too. Oh, and again, THANK YOU.
As you may know, my next book, Jennifer, Gwyneth & Me: The Pursuit of Happiness, One Celebrity at a Time, will be in bookstores soon. Two weeks from today, in fact.
To those of you who have already pre-ordered: Thank you!
And to those who haven’t–want to??
If you’re not sure, would it help to know that Cosmopolitan named Jennifer, Gwyneth & Me one of three books to take to the beach this summer? Or that Flavorwire called it a summer read that will make you smarter?
Think of it as Us Weekly meets The Happiness Project — celebrity reading you don’t have to be embarrassed about!
Selling books today is harder than ever. Especially for a relatively unknown author like me. This is why I’m asking for your help: Pre-orders are vital because they contribute to the first week’s sales (the most important week!) and they help build buzz for new books. If you might pre-order the book today, I’d be forever grateful. (Did I mention it comes out July 1? Right in time for holiday weekend beach reading?? Just saying.)
Please forward this to friends, family members, or anyone you know who loves reading, gossiping about celebrities or supporting authors. Or who loves you and by extension loves me.
For more information on Jennifer, Gwyneth & Me, you can read an excerpt, check out the early press, or see what readers are saying on Goodreads.
Thank you. Thank you. THANK YOU!
P.S. Set your DVRs! I will be on Good Morning America discussing Jennifer, Gwyneth & Me on July 1
