Last call for custom tarot cards + B&N Exclusive edition!

A quick ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI update:

B&N Edition: i just got word that the B&N Exclusive edition of ESCAPING FROM HOUDINI (that features an entire bonus chapter) is a limited edition!!! supplies are running out quickly (LIKE WHAT?!?!?) so please grab a copy while you can. once they’re gone, they’re (unfortunately) not printing more.

PRE-ORDER PRIZES: the custom tarot cards are also almost gone!! (SERIOUSLY, YOU GUYS ARE INCREDIBLE!!) i’ve heard there are only 100 or so left. i cannot wait for you to have these cards…they’re so detailed and so gorgeous in person!

LAST CALL for Premier Collectables: premier collectables has signed copies that include ALL eight tarot cards, but that offer is only good through the 17th. (TWO DAYS!!) They ship internationally, so anyone who lives outside of the US who wants the custom artwork has an opportunity to get them PLUS a signed book.

Signed/Personalized editions: if you’d like a signed or personalized book from any of the stores on my tour, please don’t forget to pre-order them ASAP. the bookstores will need your orders in before i arrive. (the first tour date is on MONDAY! OMG!)

THREE MORE DAYS UNTIL PUBLICATION! TWO MORE UNTIL BOOKS OF WONDER! AHHHHHH!

see you on the road soon, friends! ALSO! reminder: i’m bringing an exclusive as-yet-unrevealed playing card to each event to hand out. xoxo

Special Post: Ask an agent ANYthing and Harper is open to unagented submissions!

A couple of amazing things I had to share with my fellow writing friends…

If you’ve ever wanted an opportunity to ask a literary agent ANY question regarding publishing – now’s your chance! My agent (Barbara Poelle) is doing a monthly column for Writers Digest where she’ll be answering questions from YOU.

No writing/publishing question is off limits. (Unless you’re especially pervy. Then shame on you, Pervy McPervy Pants.)

If you’re uncomfortable with using your real name, Sleepless in Seattle’s are welcome. Or, you know…the more writerly version of that.

If you have something you’d like answered honestly, with good humor and spot on industry info, then direct your questions to:

writersdigest [at] fwmedia [dot] com with “Funny You Should Ask” in the subject line.

I can vouch 1,000% for how awesome Barbara is.

Here’s part of the announcement from Writers Digest itself:

Have you ever wished you could get advice on your writing life, your pursuit of publication, and everything in between, from an expert source would tell it to you straight, with good humor and grace?

So have we! That’s why we’re excited to announce WD’s new advice column, “Funny You Should Ask,” in which popular literary agent Barbara Poelle—known for her knack for spotting debut talent at Irene Goodman Literary Agency as well as for her approachable, refreshingly honest and sometimes irreverent style of instructing writers—will begin tackling your toughest problems and offering up her best advice for writers in the pages of Writer’s Digest magazine.

For the full article and extra details CLICK HERE.

On to the second bit of writerly awesome! Harper Voyager is going to be open to unagented submissions for the first time in a decade!!! The window to submit your work is only going to be from October 1st-14th.

(That’s starting THIS Monday, kids.)

For submission guidelines check out the link HERE.

 

Lastly, I finally joined tumblr last week. And guys, I’m kinda addicted. If you’re there and want to hang out and share things or ask me questions about writing, or publishing, or kittens, or of I’m team X,Y or Z…here’s where you can find me: http://kerrimaniscalco.tumblr.com/
