A Different Kind of Thanksgiving This Year
By Vonnie Davis
Thanksgiving changes for some of us over the years. The kids grow up and move to other states. Grandkids grow up, too. Sometimes the weather throws us a curve, changing travel plans. For us, all of the above are true, plus the release of a book on Thanksgiving Day. When Harper Impulse told me release date for my Christmas novella would be November 28th, the date didn't register. I even wrote it in my date planner--you know, the old paper kind no one but grandmas use anymore. Still, the significance of the date didn't hit me until two weeks ago.
OMG, my book releases on Thanksgiving. I guess a publisher in the UK wouldn't get the importance of our turkey day, would they? So, Calvin and I are celebrating low key this year, staying home so I can do promo and tweet until I've worn out my hashtags and my fingertips. We'll be eating dinner out, something I swore I'd never do since I love cooking the big meal.
Black Friday will be spent conducting a book release party on Facebook. I'd love it if you'd attend. In the search bar where you look a person or organization up, type in Book Release Party for Santa Wore Leathers and hit Enter. You'll be on the party page. Join in the conversation. We'll be talking about pets, for one thing.
But why? This is a Christmas romance, right?
We'll be sharing pictures of our pets and the messes they make.
We'll also be sharing photos of men. And laughter. We'll be sharing lots of laughter.
So, stop in after you're through with your Black Friday shopping. The party runs from nine to nine and there will be lots of prizes and laughs and girl talk...and men.
