This month marks a decade as a published author for me. I sent out a newsletter today about what I thought it would be, what it's turned out to be and what I've learned. The link is in my bio and I hope you'll read it. But if you'd like me to sum it up: thanks, all, for the start you gave me and thanks for coming along with. 💚 . . . . . . . . .
🚨 There are some very cool (& time sensitive!) #blackfriday opportunities and deals relating to Sadie that I don't want you to miss, so please indulge me with this Very Promotional Post. 😊 . 1. The Sadie hardcover is currently 50% off--under $10!!!--on Barnes & Noble and Amazon. This lasts until Sunday, so if you've wanted a copy of Sadie, another copy of Sadie OR a copy for a friend, well . . . you can't beat that price and I don't know when it'll come around again. 👀 & If you know someone who might be interested, let them know! Sadie cracked the B&N Top 100 for the first time today because of readers taking advantage of this deal and I can't believe it. You did that! THANK YOU! . 2. Sadie is a #bnsignededitions selection which means as of today, you can walk into your local B&N and find signed copies of Sadie (at list price, I believe!) while supplies last! One of the questions I'm most frequently asked is where readers can purchase signed copies of my books. The chance doesn't often present itself, so if this is something you can take advantage of, I hope you will! I had a lot of fun signing tip-ins last summer and I'm excited I've finally gotten to share this!! . 3. Okay, not deal related, but I might as well go all in while I'm here 😂: voting for The #GoodreadsChoice awards ends November 26th! Sadie is a finalist. If you want to see her named Best YA Fiction of 2018, you've got to vote for her by then. Whatever happens next, thank you to everyone who has brought this far. . . Pertinent links with more info in bio. HERE ENDS A VERY PROMOTIONAL POST! I hope you all have a beautiful weekend ahead of you. ❤️ . . . . . . #findsadie#readsadie#sadie#courtneysummers#blackfridaysale#blackfridaydeals#blackfriday2018#goodreads#barnesandnoble#bnbuzz#amazon#amazonprime#goodreads#goodreadschoiceawards#signedbook#signedbooks#wednesdaybooks#bookstagram#bookworm#booklover#authorsofinstagram#readersofinstagram#readersofig#writersofinstagram#youngadultfiction#youngadultbooks#yafiction
@YALLFest! We did it! Swipe left for shenanigans. Nothing but ❤️ for an amazing weekend that put me in front of the most amazing readers and alongside incredible authors. Here's a peek: 2. Loved doing the panel on Family with Morgan Matson, Deb Caletti, Tiffany Jackson and Adib Khorram. It was fascinating to get insight on these extremely talented authors' processes. (📷: Sarah Enni.) 3. Murder and mystery! I've never laughed harder discussing such bloody, awful things with Carrie Ryan, Corrie Wang, Lamar Giles, Stephanie Perkins and Megan Miranda. (📷: The Novl.) 4. Signing for readers! (📷: Wednesday Books.) 5. Me and the Wednesday Book team (you were missed @jpreeg!) had a lucky run-in with the wonderful Stephanie Garber. 6. Speaking of wonderful, check out these two absolute queens: me and THE ONE AND ONLY Kiersten White! (📷: Kiersten.) 7. The green room had a backdrop and what else could the amazing Katilin Ward, Laurie Devore, Kiersten White, Ryan Graudin, Megan Miranda, Beth Revis and I do but take advantage of it? (📷: Beth.) 8. Brandy Colbert and Melissa Albert did not mind my fangirling! Brandy and I have been part of each other's careers since their beginning and I can't imagine this journey without her. I've been a fan of Melissa's since the start of hers--what ferociously talented women. 9. Veronica Roth and I anticipate Smackdown, though I don't think anything actually PREPARED us for it. Incredible. (📷: V.) 10. Last but never least: YOUR NEXT FAV BAND: @vrothbooks, me, @laurie_devore and @kaitlin_ward. Getting face time with this trio who are among some of my greatest friends and supporters in life and in publishing was a highlight. I'm lucky to know such a great group of people (not all represented here, and those not there, we missed!) who just so happen write some of the most incredible books you'll ever read. ❤
Some things! (Links in my bio): * Do you like Behind the Scenes writer stuff? Over on @goodreads I've annotated Sadie's most highlighted passages by Kindle readers and shared what I was thinking when I wrote those moments in the book. It was fun! Take a look and join in on the discussions they've inspired. 👀 Also, thank you SO MUCH for voting for Sadie in the opening round of the #GoodreadsChoice Awards! I'm lucky to have the readers I do. ❤️ * I'm off to @yallfest later this week! I'm so excited and can't wait to see everyone there! 🎉 Check out my schedule so you don't miss me! * I was incredibly lucky to do an interview with the wonderful @thegrammargirl! We talked Sadie and punctuation and I hope you'll check it out. Thank you for having me, Mignon! * I'll be doing an AMA on r/books on November 14th at 2 PM EST. Mark it down in your calendar because this is your chance to ask me about Sadie, writing, publishing or anything else you want! I'm looking forward to it. 🙂 . . . . . . . . . . .
