It is Monday, and it is a Monday in almost-August, which means we here at Casa O'Rourke is in our usual back-to-school-where-did-the-summer-go frenzy. Apparently our motto is "ADD IT TO THE LIST AND MAKE MORE COFFEE." S
There is, however, one list I am pretty excited about: Goodreads July Movers and Shakers list. According to the nice people at GR, this means that many of you have added DISSONANCE to your "To Read" lists or shelves or cubbies or book storage system of choice. So...thank you! Word of mouth is the best possible way you can support an author, and I'm very, very grateful to you all for spreading the word.
The launch party on Tuesday was lovely: I did not spill on my new blouse and The Book Stall was jam-packed with wonderful, enthusiastic people! If you couldn't make it, never fear: I signed a bunch of copies and tucked bookmarks and origami stars inside, special for you. Just contact the store and they'll be happy to send you a copy.
Enjoy these waning days of summer -- and make sure YOUR summer list is full of moments that will make great memories (especially when we're back in the polar vortex).
