I preordered immediately from Books Are Magic, plus a very cool baseball style tee in red and white that says BOOKS ARE MAGIC, BROOKLYN NY. It generates endless comments here in Boston. As many have already said, I love this newsletter. And I love a good race to make something big happen. And because Leo looks so handsome in his blue-checked cozy bed with his copy of the book close to his heart, I just pre-ordered a second copy to give as a gift. Maybe I should send it to Amie since it's on her Christmas list! :) :) :) :)

It’s on my Christmas list! And yes, I still write one out every year.

I preordered when it first was announced just because I love this newsletter. But I also want to add as a response to your post today that my nonfiction writing craft book published in 2011 is still steadily finding readers and bringing me royalties. I think compared to my novels this book is definitely a slow burner and does not fade out over time. Imagine, 12 years later, or longer, your book will probably still be happily read and talked about. I think so!

Pre-ordered a while ago from Books are Magic and can't wait! In Portland, you'll be the sunshine to our January gray. If you want to have writer events in the towns you visit, like #1000wordsofnow or #1000wordshour, like a writing happy hour, reach out. But first: let's help it make that list!

Pre-ordered immediately, and also received ARC copy from NetGalley (because I couldn't wait 🤗), and I will write a review. BTW, 5-stars for me. It's such a great book. And I will pre-order now more copies because I want for you to receive your goal. That would be awesome.🩷😊

Count me in. I just pre-ordered. Can't wait to read your first craft book. I will spread the word to my writing group of friends. Your thousands of 1000wordsofsummer followers are bound to hike up the sales. Cheers to you for sending us a reminder.

Pre-ordered via Oblong Books in Rhinebeck--met you at a reading there years ago and huge fan since!

Thank you for the nudge! Pre-orders and pre-pub reviews are SO important, and you have once again shown writers a graceful example of how to accomplish our goals. You continue to inspire me. I just pre-ordered and reviewed on Goodreads. Let's go 1000 words of summer writers! Let's make a bestseller!
