Why Amazon Exlusive?

I'm writing this quick blog post in hopes to clear up any confusion in regards to The Game Changer and The Perfect Game.

Since I signed a publishing deal with Amazon Publishing, it is true that as of tomorrow, June 25th, The Perfect Game will ONLY be available as an EBook on Kindle or the Kindle App.  The same is true for The Game Changer. 

What this means for you?

If you don't have a kindle, you can download the Kindle App on almost any device. Your Ipad, Ipad Mini, the Newer Nook HD's (it can be found in the Google Play store for free), your Apple or Android phone (I know that sucks, but it's an option), and newer computers and laptops.

The paperback versions will also be available for order online. You can find them on Amazon, Barnes & Noble and other locations. I am really sorry for all of the confusion and inconvenience.  Because I know that it IS an inconvenience for some of you. 

Thanks again for understanding and for all of your support.  The Game Changer comes out tomorrow and I hope you all love it!  :)

FOUR MORE DAYS!

Only four more days until THE GAME CHANGER is out!  Have you pre-ordered it yet?  When you pre-order it, it shows up on your kindle the second it's released!  I just started preordering things and I freaking squealed when a book showed up on my kindle at 9pm one night!  It's the little things people!  :) 

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00BYEGSQQ/ref=as_li_ss_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=390957&creativeASIN=B00BYEGSQQ&linkCode=as2&tag=youaduautjste-20

That's the link to grab it, if you want!  Otherwise, we'll go nuts when this baby comes out on TUESDAY!!! I can't believe it's almost here already. I feel like we've been planning some huge event together, counting down the days, the hours, the minutes.  And then once it's here, it will be GONE!  No more counting down.

I'll probably curl up into the fetal position and cry.  I mean, all this counting down has been sort of exciting, right? 

I can't wait for the book to finally be out though- I hope you all love it. I can't wait to hear what you think. Unless you think it sucks and you hate it.. then maybe you could keep all that to yourself. lol 

Side note- Book Bash is happening in ONE WEEK!  I can't believe that either!  I'm still taking orders for The Game Changer for Book Bash, so if you're going to be there and want to ensure you'll get a signed paperback, make sure you buy your copy ahead of time. I'll have a limited amount of books.  http://writing.jennster.com/2013/06/pre-order-game-changer-for-book-bash.html  That blog post has the link to the orders.

Alright-  That's it for now!  Stay tuned for more goodies. I'm sorry the giveaways are happening slower than I anticipated, but people are busy! We'll still do stuff AFTER tgc comes out!  :)

Pre-Order The Game Changer for Book Bash ONLY

**pre-sales are closed for Book Bash. Books will be available for sale at my table for $15.00**

Since I will only have a limited number of copies of The Game Changer available at Book Bash (Orlando, June 29th), I wanted to give some of you the option to order a copy in advance.  A lot of you were telling me you'd prefer that! And well, your wish is my command.  :)

There are 100 copies of TGC available for Pre-Order, with more quantities available on site the day of the event (although still limited). Depending on the need, I'll see if I can get more copies-  I honestly don't know what to expect and how many books to bring, etc.

Okay.

Ready?

Hopefully this whole Pay-Pal button thing works and I didn't screw it up somewhere along the lines ... but more than likely I did. HA

Please please please make sure that your name is somewhere on the order (or in a note) so that my list the day of the event is accurate and I don't give your book away to someone else!  :) 

Y'all are awesome!  I don't think I've told you that enough lately.  xox

One note of clarification-  You will pick up your book at my table on the day of Book Bash. Your copy will not be mailed to your house or anything... you have to come see me!  :)
