My lovely press, Anchor and Plume, is generously giving away five(!) copies of The Flexible Truth on Goodreads.com. Click the link above and enter now for a chance to meet a dentist, mechanic, crazy grandmother, an even crazier aunt, and a grave digger, among other characters who reside in my debut collection of flash fiction stories.
P.S. If you'd rather guarantee yourself a copy of The Flexible Truth, you can't go wrong! There are some goodies to be had if you pre-order a copy of the Second Edition!
Listen to me read "Apples You've Bit Into Without Me," which appears in my debut flash fiction collection The Flexible Truth, available now from Anchor and Plume.
FROM THE PRESS'S WEBSTORE:
As of April 22, we have sold all 250 copies of The Flexible Truth! *Insert happy dance moves here* We will be taking pre-orders for a second edition of this fun and offbeat collection. We will be posting details shortly—numbers, timelines, etc.—but know this: When you pre-order a copy during our Second Edition Campaign, your copy will feature a new piece of writing and you will be the lucky recipient of two broadsides—the broadside from the first edition and a new broadside featuring writing by Kayla Pongrac and illustrated by Shayna Blackford. Ready to find out just how flexible the truth is? Pre-order today!
NOTE: We will be collecting pre-orders through Monday, June 15. We expect to ship orders the first week of July. If for any reason we do not meet our minimum to go to print, you will receive a full refund and a digital copy of the new broadside to download, print, and share!
I would like to thank everyone who ordered a copy of my debut chapbook, "The Flexible Truth." THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU.
I woke up this morning to see this lovely icon under my book's listing in Anchor and Plume's webstore:
Good news for those of you who didn't get a chance to purchase the First Edition! We've just launched a Second Edition Campaign via Anchor and Plume's webstore. Here are the details:
Again, thank you all for your support. It means a ton. Now let's work together to get this Second Edition to print :) Pre-order now! Tell your friends! Tell your family members! Tell everyone you know!
Have you purchased your copy of The Flexible Truth? If so, feel free to rate and review it on Goodreads here.
P.S. If you haven't purchased your copy, visit the Anchor and Plume webstore as soon as possible, as we're one or two copies away from being sold out of the First Edition!
Cooper seems to know best! :o)
I'm thrilled to announce that I'll be offering an exclusive book signing at Spice Up Your Life Herbery and Coffee House (my favorite coffee shop on the planet!), located at 222 North Center Ave. in Somerset April 29 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This place has been my little writing haven for years, so if you come in and purchase a cup of tea or coffee (or even a few bags of their WONDERFUL loose leaf tea), you'll receive a dollar off your copy of The Flexible Truth. See you there! :)
