Thanks For All Your Support During My Book Release!

 

I’ve had a few days to wind down from the book release and the blog tour and I wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who bought my book, tweeted or shared about my book, or hosted me on their blog during my release time!

It can be lonely sending a book out into the world, but I didn’t feel alone because you showed up–to buy the book, to review the book, to share my posts and tweets, and to comment on blog posts–and let me know you were there beside me.

It means the world to me. So thank you so much for all your support.

On a personal note, I turned 40 and changed my hair. This is my third time being a redhead and I love it.

 

I had a great birthday–I did everything I wanted to do!

Finished reading Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, which is an epically good work of psychological ghost story. Then I read My Fair Godmother, which had a fun twist on time travel.

I watched Guardians of the Galaxy 2 and laughed so much that I ended up rewatching it a few more times. My favorite scene was when Rocket and Yondu took over the ship.

I hung out with Emerson all day and night.

And I ate Carvel ice cream cake. It was such a relaxing day!

Author Events

I did my first craft fair on November 5. I met some cool people, sold some books, and had a great time. Mom was there to help me every step of the way. This past week, the vertigo has been acting up from all the activity, but I’m not letting it stop me. I’ll rest as much as I can between events and eat my peppermint candies.

Here’s where I’ll be the rest of this month if you’d like to meet me and pick up a signed copy of any of my books:

November 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. In Meriden, CT, at the Horace C. Wilcox Technical High School (298 Oregon Road): author selling and signing books.
November 26th from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. In Southington, CT, at the AquaTurf Convention Center craft fair (Mulberry St.): selling and signing books.

  1. I’m so glad you had an exciting and fun book launch Kourtney!

    • Kourtney says:

      Thanks for being a part of it! I followed a detailed plan this time and it really helped with my nerves and my last minute insanity. 🙂

  2. Carrie Rubin says:

    Happy Birthday to you! The red looks great! Glad you had a successful launch.

    It’s funny because on my last drive to New Hampshire, I picked up the audiobook of The Haunting of Hill House. A few chapters in, I’d realized I’d already read it. Luckily I had some back-up audiobooks!

    • Kourtney says:

      Thanks. 🙂 I really love it. Me too.

      Oh no! So glad you had a few backups. My editor said TGWIG’s setting reminded her a bit of The Haunting of Hill House so it was on my tbr list for a few years. Now I realize what a compliment she was giving me! Hill House was like another character in the novel.

  3. I’m so happy you had a successful book launch and a happy birthday, Kourtney. The red looks great!!!! You’re looking quite sassy! xo

    • Kourtney says:

      Thanks so much, Jill! Especially for your awesome spotlight on me during my release month! Aw thank you. I’ve gotten hit on more in the past 2 weeks than the past year. 😉 I feel sassy!

  4. Thanks for the update–it sounds like it has been a great launch. I love the redhead look!

    • Kourtney says:

      I feel like things came together really well. 🙂 And I didn’t freak out like I have in the past. Thanks so much! I really love it!
