Shameless Self Promotion Friday Five (Apologies in Advance)

OK, I know we've been blabbing WAY too much about Liar Society lately, but we have a few big announcements to make:

1. YOU ARE ALL INVITED TO OUR EPIC LAUNCH PARTY!!!!!!!!! Seriously. Mark your calendars, bring your friends, we would LOVE to see every single one of you at the Liar Society Launch Party of Awesome. There will be books. There will be awkward conversations. And most importantly, there will be pink hair. Don't miss it.

Alas, we understand that geography is a fickle bitch, and most of you don't live in the Cleveland area. The good news is we've got everyone covered because we'll be hosting a huge virtual launch party on the blog on March 8th. That's right. Virtual. Launch. Party. There will be a humiliating vlog. There will be fabulous prizes. And there will be signed books. Get. Excited.

2. We have a #1 fan. No seriously. Her name is Kare and you guys all have to go meet her. She and her brother, Dallin, read The Liar Society and loved it so much that they're going to be posting fun stuff about the book every single Friday until the book hits the shelves. Um, how's that for amazing!?! Be sure to check it out here.

3. For those of you who didn't get Grace's mysterious email and for those of you who were a little too slow to pick up on Grace's clue (we're looking at you, Sarah) we are officially releasing our Liar Society Book Trailer. You may notice that this version does not include Laura traipsing around in a private school uniform. It just so happens that there's ANOTHER version of the trailer, but you'll have to email Grace to see that one. Ghostly besties are SO controlling.



4. The amazing Shannon Messenger is giving away a Liar Society ARC, so if you're interested hop on over to her corner of the blogsphere. Even if you're not, go there. It's fun.

5. In what was either an extremely fortuitous typo or an act of sheer genius, Jem referred to us as "The LiLa" in a blog comment. So it's officially official, we are The LiLa. Sort of like The Cher. Or The Madonna. Only we can't sing and we don't have any drag queens impersonating us. Yet.

Have a fabulous weekend everyone!

XOXO,
The LiLa

Wow that's devotion! I hope I have a fan like that someday! Makes you guys total rockstars!

So much awesome here! You're allowed to give shameless promotion!!!

Laura Pauling said...

I loved the trailer. Srsly. Really good and perfect. I'll be here at the virtual launch! Can't wait!

Matthew Rush said...

Very nice. I got annoyed with the slowly typing text in the video for a moment, but then I was like "wait a minute, this works. It's kind of suspenseful."

Well done. Off to check out that blog ...

salarsenッ said...

I love that you have a #1 fan!! *rushes to visit Shannon*

Kelly Lyman said...

So happy for you girls! I'm crossing my fingers that I win that ARC!

Stina Lindenblatt said...

Cute! Can't wait for the party! :D

Katie Mills said...

I'll be there with virutal bells on! (is it me, or did that sound kinky? Ugh, I need more coffee)

Little Ms J said...

I am so wearing my new sparkly shoes to your virtual party. I will not dye my hair just because I'm not Kate... or Jennifer Garner who annoyingly looks amazing in any color wig (blue hair on Alias, anyone?), but I will even freaking squee. That is how excited I am for you.

I will squee.

Ohmygod.

Kerri C at CK Farm said...

Yay! Blog party! I'm bringing the pink frosted cupcakes with sprinkles on top....er make that Twizzlers ;)

Candyland said...

You know, I'm not that far from Cleveland.........

JEM said...

Totally on purpose. You ladies are an ENTITY. So she does have pink hair now?

P.S. It's a sick addiction, but I lurve the sound of typing on a keyboard. It's like an aural massage.

Sara B. Larson said...

Love the trailer! And that is awesome you guys have such dedicated fans already -- before the book is even out! Woohoo!

Kare said...

haha :D I may be obsessed...just a bit. (I would be the number one fan) I really want to see this other trailer it sounds pretty fun.

lexcade said...

love you guys. can't wait for the super-fun virtual launch party ;)

Dara said...

I will SO be there for the launch party. Already called my parents and told them to expect me to crash at their house for the weekend :) Now just to let the husband know...

Awesome trailer too!

Elana Johnson said...

Love this post! How cool is it that you guys have actual fans? SO COOL. I'm terrified that I'll only ever have my blogging friends and some members of my family.

Gail said...

Loved the trailer! Love the idea of a virtual Launch Party for those of us monetarily-challenged. Will you be dye-ing your hair pink for the live launch party??? Okay, maybe not a dye job, how about pink wigs though?
I am sooooo entered in Shannon's giveaway. I even promised that I would "pay it forward" after reading the ARC and have a giveaway for it (and talk up the book) on my blog. That offer stands to anyone who will share an ARC of THE LIAR SOCIETY with me. Yeah, I know I'm sounding a little stalker-girlish, sorry! I'm just too excited about reading your book you LiLa, you!

Simon C. Larter said...

Whaaa-aaat...?

You're actually making me follow an extra step to see the private school uniform vid? The cruelty! The heartlessness! The humanity!

But yay for virtual release parties! If I, hypothetically, drove to Cleveland, would there be vodka at this release party? Hypothetically?

*cough*

*grin*

Bethany Elizabeth said...

You guys must be getting SOOO excited! I can't wait to read The Liar Society, I hope you're not too stressed out by all the last-minute stuff you have to do. :)

Krispy said...

Yay virtual launch party! I'm excited!!! :D

Nikki (Wicked Awesome Books) said...

Well, The LiLa, I will most certainly be attending this virtual launch party. Cleveland is a little too far for me to travel, but I'm expecting pink hair nonetheless!

Sarah said...

Love the trailer! And The LiLa.

Have a good weekend!

K. M. Walton said...

The typing sound in your trailer is very pleasing. I'm serious.

Congrats on this exciting stuff!

Shannon Whitney Messenger said...

Aw, thanks for the sweet shout out. LOVE all these awesome promo ideas.And the trailer. And gah--there's too much awesome!

Hopping off to the links now!

Jemi Fraser said...

Awesome trailer - I love that you used 'creeptastic'!!! :)

erica m. chapman said...

Love the trailer!! I agree with Jemi, that fact that "creeptastic" is used is AWESOME. So excited for you guys! Let me know if you go north to do any signings. I'll come see you guys ;o)

<3 The LiLa ;o)

Brigitte said...

I will be attending the launch party... in spirit! Best wishes for your new book release! Do you know if it hits the shelves in Canada on a different date than in America?

Jacqueline Howett said...

Love the trailer. Hope to be there!

Bri Meets Books said...

Oh! Neat. I think I will actually be able to attend this. Might make it a business and fun trip but I'll try! Exciting.

Don't call this a comeback

So it’s been a minute. Or 10. Or truthfully more like 2,102,400. At least we think that’s how many minutes there are in 3 years, but let...
