"You screamed like a girl." "I am a girl."

 Wherein Jack still wasn't ready but went through with it anyways.

 Today is not only the release of my newest book, Abolished Impracticality, book two in the Haphazardly series. But it is also the one year release date for Haphazardly Implausible, my debut novel. Publishing was one of the best, but scariest things, I've ever done. And I couldn't have done it without each and every one of you. You all gave me and my books a chance and came back even after reading them. You've put up with my editing posts and general strangeness and without you I couldn't be here. Without readers an author is nothing but a writer.
 So thank you. All of you. For your encouragement, support, emails, comments, and friendship. All of you have been the best part of publishing and worth all the editing and weeks of lack of sleep. And there is no possible way I can ever thank you enough, except to keep writing for as long as you want to read my books.

 From the reviews I have received on Haphazard, it seems like most everyone who has read it has enjoyed the adventure spent with Peter and the others. As with series, Peter is not quite the same in book two - nor are any of the others - but I'm hoping this book is just as enjoyable as the first. 

 And I am kind of running out of things to say. So much for sappy speeches I suppose....
 I did come up with a party, both for Abolished and Haphazard. I thought it might be fun to do something where everyone talks about their favourite book they read this year. (I know, just one) And since no one entered my giveaway, I will rehold it and all the posts can be entered to win. (Leave a comment, please, or an email so I know you've entered.) If you do not have a blog you can send your "post" in an email or leave it in the comments below. Because there are few things better than sharing wonderful books!

 Now, are you all ready for this? Because I'm still not sure I am. But here it is! Abolished Impracticality!

 And I am SO sorry to all my readers who buy ebook. I forgot to set everything up in time and now it will be a day or more before they are out. It sound be ready for Kindle tomorrow or Monday, so just keep checking. But I had trouble with Nook and have to figure out what went wrong and how I got it to work last time. I am out of town this weekend but first thing Monday I am going to work on it and see what happened, so Nook's will be out as soon as possible. 

 Now I am going to bed.

  1. CONGRATULATIONS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *throws confetti*

  2. CONGRATS YOU WONDERFUL AUTHOR YOU! CAKE ALL ROUND!!!!! And happy being-a-published-author-1st-anniversary too. ^.^ Seriously special.

  3. Congratulations! Now you've caught up with me again!!!! I'll have to do something about that ...

    But I've still been published two years longer than you have, I guess I'll console myself with that. (And the fact that you have more completed rough drafts than I do. Sew was only my second book to get to the point of "The End.")

    And now you can write your chapter of Worth, right???? I'm dying to know what happens to Adrian!!!!

    And I'll see what I can do about a favorite book post. I started a job three weeks ago, and this week has been a mess for very emotional family issues that I can't talk about because of legal issues, so while I intended to to write up a steampunk post, I haven't experienced enough steampunk to write a post with as little brainpower as I had left. (My nutcracker and tags from the Notebook sisters were bad enough!)

    But I think I can talk about my favorite book. I narrowed one down the other day ... but I've read a few more REALLY good books since then ... and my brain is terribly fickle when it comes to favorites!

    But again, congratulations!!!!

  4. Congratulations, congratulations, and congratulations again!!! That is so exciting! :) *happy dance* ;)

  5. DOUBLE CONGRATULATIONS, JACK!!!!!!! First on the publishing book #2, and secondly on the anniversary of book #1.

    Here's to many more years of your books and writing!!!!

  6. Congratulations! And on the one year anniversary. That is awesome.

  7. Yay Jack!! You are so cool, I can't even describe the coolness of you. No wait. I can. I'm going to steal my friend's line and say, "You're so cool, icecubes are jealous" See? Much cool.

    Or or or. You're Winchester Cool. Ooooh that's pretty epic. lol.


  8. I'm so excited for you and for your book! Congratulations!!!!

  9. Yay! (Albeit slightly late thanks to school.) I hope to find a copy some time after Christmas for my nook! :) Super excited!

  10. And I'm finally getting a chance to check into blogs just before going back to school...somewhat late, but CONGRATULATIONS! :D That's awesome!!!
