On July 11th THE ALMOST SISTERS goes on sale. I am partnering with THE ALABAMA BOOKSMITH so folks who cannot come to the launch party in Atlanta can order a signed (or signed and personalized) hardback first edition. Alabama Booksmith will ship your copies THE VERY FIRST DAY THE BOOK IS AVAILABLE.
You can skip all the flirting, get riiiight to the part that matters most, and full on ORDER IT LIKE A BOSS by going HERE.
If you are asking, Why should I participate? Please. Read on.
I have Four reasons (Spoiler: The fourth one is PRIZES)
1 – For your own pleasure. I think you’ll love THE ALMOST SISTERS: A usually level-headed graphic novelest, out of town and off the chain at a Comics Con, gets swept off her barstool by an attractive and anonymous Batman. Tequila is not the handmaiden of good decisions. She fetches up pregnant, but before she can tell her lily white, conservative Southern family that she is going to be single-parenting a biracial baby, she finds out her perfect step-sister’s marriage is imploding. Back in Alabama, her beloved Grandmother has been hiding both a creeping dementia and the only remaining clue to a murder mystery that has roots that go all the way back to the Civil War. I am ungodly proud of it, and early responses are stellar—Both Kirkus and Library Journal gave it starred reviews!
2 – For my pleasure. You will be actively supporting my career in the most effective way possible. Your sale will register the week of the book’s release, with a bookstore who reports sales to all major bestseller lists. I can’t TELL you how key this is. If you want to allow me the privilege of continuing to write novels because you enjoy them because you are a glorious human being of taste and substance, well…This is how you do it.
3 – For the pleasure of an awesome store. This is one of those special places in the nation where new voices get hand-sold and find readerships. The Indies gave me my career. Every aspiring writer and every adventurous reader on the planet needs to make sure they stay open and thriving.
4 — There will be PRIZES. When you order a signed first edition here, your name is entered into a blind drawing I’ll do LIVE on Facebook after it launches. SO far three levels of prizes have been revealed—the MULE JEWELS silver jewelry, the original Comic Book Art from the book, and cocktail accessory packs pictured below. You can read about these prizes (and how to unlock more HERE (joshilynjackson.com) We haven’t gotten to the grand prize yet, a choice for dorks or one for divas, made to please the titular almost sisters: Perfect, GOOP-scented Rachel and the Unrepentant Geek Leia. STAY TUNED.
If you are saying, This sounds exactly like the sort of lofty lit-hijinks a book-deity like me needs to get in on, Then push the button:
You can also enter by sending a postcard to THE ALABAMA BOOKSMITH 2626 19th Pl S, Homewood, AL 35209 with your name, address, phone number, email address, and the words ALMOST DRAWING ENTRY.
If you are saying, What else can I do to help?
Aw thanks! You are my favorite! Well, let’s see. You could copy the address at the top of this info page and post to Facebook, your Blog, Tweeter, Snap Chat, an email, Pinterest, Infogram, google+, a rando message board or make a You Tube video of you Twerking with the Virtual Book Tour Link on your butt. Okay, maybe not that. But you COULD straight up go to actual human people that you know, look into their eyes with your eyes, and tell them with your mouth about this event.
THANK YOU! You are the best ones.
