Audiobooks, Amazon lists and Autographs

It’s shaping up to be a very exciting week over here. I may have to put on something more dressy-uppy than my “good” yoga pants.

Yesterday I found out that The Girls of Atomic City made Amazon’s 2013 Top 100 Best Books of the Year list. I was thrilled and had no idea that little tidbit of news was coming right on the heels of the GoodReads Choice Awards nomination. Double-whammy.

This morning I learned that the audiobook for Girls is coming out next Tuesday, Nov. 12. Finally! People have been asking for months. Better yet, I am very fortunate that the amazingly talented Cassandra Campbell is the narrator. Her work is fantastic. Books can be pre-ordered at Audible and at Amazon.

And it’s now official: I will be signing books at the Books-a-Million in Oak Ridge, TN—home of The Girls of Atomic City—the day after Thanksgiving, also known as Black Friday. I start at noon. It will be nuts. 

Then, on Small Business Saturday, I will be participating in “Indies First” at my local bookstore Malaprop’s. Me and my hubby, Joe D’Agnese, will be working as booksellers at the coolest indie bookstore on the planet.

Phew. Fasten your seat belts. It’s going to be a bumpy November. Hope to see some of you here and there…
