Get 'em while they're hot!

Those of you who have been waiting for my new book to hit the store shelves might be interested to know that it did that yesterday. For the next few weeks you'll see copies of A Season of Forgiveness in WalMart, Target, grocery stores, drug stores, and bookstores that sell "category" romance novels.

All WalMarts are supposed to carry "Love Inspired" books. If you don't see them in your store, please ask a manager. They might still be in the back room, waiting to be freed from their packing boxes.

If you want to buy A Season of Forgiveness in a brick-and-mortar store, don't dawdle. Category (or "series") romance novels are sold just like magazines. They're available everywhere, but only for a limited time. When the next month's books are shelved, the old books are pitched out. So rush to the store this week or next and snag a copy of my book while you can.

Not all bookstores carry category romance novels, but any bookstore will order a book for you. Just give 'em this number: ISBN 0373874537.

If you want to order a copy from Amazon, they're shipping it right now. I believe the page says they won't ship until October 1, but my friends who preordered are already getting books.

If you're into to instant gratification, download the e-book. It's only $4.46 and you can be reading it five minutes from right now.

Not sure you'd like my book? You can read most of the first chapter here. (Don't read the excerpt on Amazon--for some reason it's full of typos.)

And one last time, here's the teaser video:

If you enjoy the book, please tell everybody you ever met. And buy some extra copies for your pals. That'll encourage me to write more.

WHOOOOO-HOOOOOOOO!!! I'm calling my local Christian bookstore to see if they have them in. They usually get the next month's books a week early. YIPEEEEEE!

Congrats on your "new baby," Brenda. As much as I enjoyed *A Family Forever,* I'm already looking forward to this one. (Like the cover a lot, too.


Brenda Coulter said...

Aw, thanks B.J. and Shauna.

Yes, I do love that cover. It very nicely depicts a favorite spot of the story's heroine. It's all there--the 100-year-old white limestone library with the domed roof, the little pond, the willow tree, the bench....

I loved the book. I want more. :) When is your next book going to be released? Do you think you will ever go back and write his brother's story? lol so many questions ;)

I picked up your book *last week* at Wal-Mart. I haven't bought a Love Inspired novel in months, but I was keeping an eye out for books from favorite authors. This month, I hit the mother load. :-) I bought three LI books and plan to get a couple of LI Suspense books. Excited to read your new book, Brenda. :-)

Brenda Coulter said...

Thanks for buying the book, Lisa. Hope you like it.

Brittanie, thanks so much. No, I don't have plans to write stories for any of those secondary characters. Sorry. As for my next book, that will be out about 10 months from now.
