Little Pink Book Update

 Only three months until the January 8, 2013 release of I SAW YOUR FUTURE AND HE'S NOT IT: A PSYCHIC'S GUIDE TO TRUE LOVE and lots of exciting stuff is going on. Last Saturday, my co-author and aunt, Louise Helene, did her first interview. She was featured on Miranda Tempest's blog radio program

During the show, Louise talked about how the book is filled with stories taken directly from her psychic consultations and includes techniques for readers to improve their own intuition. She also took calls from listeners seeking psychic advice. It was a great interview, and it was fun to hear her field calls from people who had many of the same kinds of problems that we address in the book.

Meanwhile, I've attended some book signing events to promote my other books and have been handing out promotional materials for I SAW YOUR FUTURE. It's been getting a terrific reception. "I love that title!" and "When can I get a copy?" and "That's a great cover!" are common reactions from readers. And speaking of the cover, we've given the book a nickname. The "little pink book" is cute and quicker to say than the long regular title.
The positive reactions to the book are coming from some unexpected places, which suggests it strikes a chord for a variety of women. For instance, Louise was at a government office recently and got to talking about books with the employee behind the counter. Louise mentioned that she has a book coming out, and when the woman asked about it, Louise pulled out one of our pink promotional postcards. The woman took one look at it, slammed it down on the counter, and demanded an autograph. Then she grabbed the card and ran to the other employees at the back of the office, calling, "Girls, look at this!"
We've even been contacted by media outside the United States about featuring the book. Talk about a thrill! To think that people all around the world can read and enjoy these stories.
It's been exciting so far, and we can't wait to see what happens next. It's hard to wait for the book's release date, though. I want to tell people they can go get a copy right away, but instead I've got to say they can pre-order. But that's OK. It'll be out soon.
And when it is released, then I'll have to keep my eyes open to see if my dream comes true. What dream is that, you ask? I want to spot a copy of the little pink book "in the wild." In other words, I want to see a complete stranger reading it on an airplane or in a coffee shop or buying one at a bookstore. That would be incredible. And in a few months, it might just happen! My aunt has been sure all along that our book will be a huge success. And she is a psychic, so great things are definitely on the horizon.
