Why We Can't Shut Up About the Get Real Book Tour

Ok, so I know you're probably SO sick of us right now. Come see us on our book tour! Buy our book! Look at our crazy hair! LiLa! LiLa! LiLa! (Yeah, you're totally chanelling Jan Brady. It's ok. Own your inner Jan. It's easier that way. Trust me. We've all got her in there somewhere.)

But here's the truth, we can't stop talking about this stuff because we can't believe it's actually happening. Sourcebooks is sending us on a national book tour. They're investing in us, investing in The Liar Society. And we're floored. FLOORED.

Back when The Liar Society was released in March 2011 our publicist told us that we'd be lucky to be stocked at Barnes and Noble for a month. He said we had one month to sell a lot of books to keep our book stocked and the way he said it made it pretty clear that he thought we'd all be eating ice cream in hell before that happened. Of course that was right after he admitted to not having time to read our book. To go from having a publicist who never read our book to a 9 city book tour is kind of insane. And we're grateful and excited and overwhelmed and terrified that no one is going to show up. Which is why we haven't been able to shut up about it.

So, yeah. Sorry. We suck. We're obnoxious. But we also have pretty new bookmarks!



If we send you one will you maybe consider forgiving us for being so promotion-y and come see us when we embark on this crazy adventure? Because there's no doubt in our minds that we'd never have made it this far with out YOU, loyal blog readers (Especially our Grandma, because she's awesome! You get as many bookmarks as you want, Grandma! You too, Kim J.!) Anyone who reads our day-to-day ramblings on a regular basis should have something to show for it.

So comment if you want a bookmark and we'll email you for your address. Thanks for putting up with us!

That's awesome, girls, about the book tour. Congrats!!!!! :D

I would love a bookmark. Is this an international offer (I live in Canada), or just for the US?

Your book tour sounds awesome! I totally think you need to insist on sample cupcakes at each location or something! I'd love one (or a bunch) of bookmarks for my students. If you're willing to part with them, we can make them avaliable in the library at my HS.

I wants a bookmark. And if you come to Houston then you know I will be there!

Also you are not being to promotion-y, you both totally deserve this!

You should be singing it out to the world that you are going on book tour!! It's so exciting. I really, really wish that I could make the NYC stop. Stupid work :/
LoL. Anyway, if you still have bookmarks, I'd love to have one!

I'm going to make every effort to make it to the Hudson signing and hopefully I'll have my bookclub in tow! :)

Oh, and I would love a bookmark.

Lisa and Laura said...

YAY! We'd love to see you AND your book club! Fingers crossed it works out! And email us at lisa-laura@live.com with your address so we can send you a bookmark!

So excited for you, ladies! So. Darn. Excited.
(except for the part where you're not coming to Texas.)

Laura Pauling said...

That is so awesome! Shows all the hard work you guys put in for Liar Society was worth it! And how much more awesome is it when you weren't expecting it and didn't get it off right off the bat? So cool. And so happy for you guys! You know I want a bookmark! But I have no idea if you're touring near me... probably not. I'll go try and find your tour schedule.
