The One with NAThanksgiving!
(Cue unrelated gifs because I’m too busy to find ones that make sense).
I am deep, deep, DEEP in the writing cave at the moment. (Cue at least one on topic gif representing how I’m feeling at the moment).
But I wanted to pop in an say HAPPY THANKSGIVING (almost)! And to say that you can now get e-book copies of the entire Losing It series for like eleven bucks. YEP. THAT’S RIGHT. There’s an e-book boxed set of the whole series, just in time to push some awkward on everyone you know for christmas. 🙂
And in honor of the release, I’m giving away a few copies! Just enter the rafflecopter below:
And as if that were enough awesome, there’s also an e-book boxed set of six of Harper Collins New Adult books! The boxed set contains Wait for You by J. Lynn, Losing It by ME, Taking Chances by Molly McAdams, A Little Too Far by Lisa Desrochers, Rule by Jay Crownover, and Foreplay by Sophie Jordan. I seriously love ALL these books, and you can’t beat this price!
So, I’m totally going to give away some of those too!
But first, I want to take a minute and say how very thankful I am that New Adult is enough of a “thing” now that a major publisher is willing to do a boxed set like this. It’s been a long journey from the time that I chose to self-publish Losing It because traditional publishers weren’t open to NA. It’s been a long journey since we all celebrated when the term started appearing in articles and in deal announcements.
We’ve come a long way, guys, and I am so thankful. Not just because I was lucky enough to have my books be a part of this explosion of awesomeness, but because I still believe whole-heartedly that we need NA stories. I’ve said this before, but when I was in college, I would have given anything to be able to easily find books about characters dealing with the transition to adulthood. At it’s heart, one of fiction’s chief purposes is to reach out to readers and say, “You’re not alone.” And in a period of life that is often stressful and joyful, terrifying and transformative, lovely and lonely– I know there are readers out there who need these books. And there are authors who need to tell these stories.
So, this thanksgiving I’m thankful that twenty-somethings can now go to Barnes and Noble or Target or Books-a-Million, and they can find books about how difficult it can be to find yourself in a chaotic and challenging world.
I’m thankful for New Adult books and New Adult readers!
And even if Thanksgiving isn’t a “thing” where you are… well you can still celebrate with us. Because we’ve already established that anything can become a “thing” if enough people believe in it.
