Sweetness Follows

So remember when I told you about EVERMORE being pubbed in the UK? Well, the other day I received the "black box"--a sort of marketing treat they sent out to various UK booksellers consisting of, well, a black box, a copy of EVERMORE, a copy of The Bookseller (see post below), some red confetti, and several fortune cookies, wrapped in shiny red mylar, with fortunes such as these (I know it's kind of hard to read, but squinting helps!):


How cool is that? Wish I'd thought of it!

And speaking of cool, the Fivers just got a really nice mention on the Heifer International site, you can see it HERE!

Also, a new SHADOWLAND signing has just been added on November 19, at 7:00 PM here:

Thursday, November 19
Time: 7:00 PM
SHADOWLAND signing!
Border’s Books
4980 Stockdale Highway
Bakersfield, CA 93309
661.328.9800

This will probably be the last one until 2010 what with the holidays coming up, my book deadlines, and, oh, did I mention I'm getting braces?? Braces and gum surgery . . . yikes!

And, lastly, I've just ordered some shiny, new SHADOWLAND bookmarks and if you send me a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:

Alyson Noel
14 Monarch Bay Plaza, #186
Monarch Beach, CA 92629

I'll send some your way!

Have a great day everyone!

WOW! Lots of great news. I will be putting an envelope in the mail to you in the AM. My best wishes will be with you on your surgery and braces. Thank you.

Alissa said...

That sounds fun. Congrats on being published in the UK :) And good luck with the surgery & braces. You'd think the whole braces and retainers and all that would be over once you're an adult. But oh well. Good luck!

Gracie said...

Congratulations in receving the "black box"! I like "Your destiny lies behind two tulips" and "A love that never dies. A life that never ends. A tale that will haunt you forever: Evermore" best.
I just want to ask, can we still get the bookmarks? Because I only got the chance to visit your site today and since this post was posted last month, I'm thinking that maybe all the bookmarks are finished by now.

Alyson Noel said...

Hi Silver Blue Tower--the bookmarks haven't even arrived yet--should be here sometime next week- so feel free to send a self-addressed, stamped envelope to:

Alyson Noel
14 Monarch Bay Plaza, #186
Monarch Beach, CA 92629

And I'll send some when I get them!

Have a great day!
