STATUS: It’s early in the day and I’m tackling my To Do list. Woot.

What’s playing on the iPod right now? SOMETHING IN THE WAY SHE MOVES by James Taylor

Talk about a rare opportunity! An insider publishing party and you blog readers are invited.

Jamie Ford, author of a debut novel called HOTEL ON THE CORNER OF BITTER AND SWEET, is coming to the Denver Tattered Cover on Colfax this February 24, 2009.

To celebrate, the Nelson Literary Agency is hosting a pre-booksigning happy hour* at Encore Restaurant, which is adjacent to the Tattered Cover.

And if you live in the Denver Area, you can join us. Click to play invite.

Both Sara and I will be there and we’ll be raffling off two free copies of HOTEL to some lucky guests. All we ask is that you RSVP to so we have an accurate headcount. Please also plan to attend the booksigning that will follow as that is the point. Knowing my great blog readers, I probably didn’t need to mention that.


*Cash Bar. Appetizers will be served.
Also note that the TC has a free parking garage on the west side of the complex.

    I WISH I lived in Denver, just so I could come! I loved this book! My husband and I just got back from a trip to Washington and I had fun pointing out things and places (like the fairgrounds at Puyallup) from the book. So glad you helped bring the book to life 🙂

    I don’t know if you’re aware (I’m guessing you are) Borders sent me one of their standard marketing emails today, promoting their top five picks for best new releases – Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet was number 2!!!

    Congratulations to Jamie, and to you!!! I can’t wait to get my hands on this one. It really looks amazing.

    Aw, if only this event had happened a decade ago when I was still living in Colorado Springs. I would’ve been there in a heartbeat! Well, maybe not, because back then I was still in middle school, but you get the idea! LOL!

    I’ve been looking forward to reading this book ever since you posted Jamie’s query. Hope you have a great turnout. Best of luck to you both!

    Aww, man. I live too far away over here in North Carolina. I would LOVE to meet both you and Ms. Megibow. Hope the party’s a success for your author! 😀

    Jamie’s book is featured in my GoodReads email newsletter this morning. Great publicity for this book, the author must just be thrilled!

    Is this what it’s like to be a literary sensation? 🙂

    I never thought I’d say this, but I wish I lived in Denver. Oh well. Have a great party and all the best to Jamie!
