Spring is here!

Release Day.

Today is release day! I’m excited and nervous. But mostly excited.

“Where can I get a copy?” you ask. The answer is:

If you see a copy of it sitting in your local bookstore, let me know. If you can get a picture of it sitting in your local bookstore, send it to me at rjkeller.wfs@gmail.com and I’ll post it here at da blog.

Your Kindle will like Waiting For Spring.

If you want to tell a friend to pick up a copy that would be awesome, too.

And if you’re in the Corinna, Maine area on Saturday, May 14 between 1pm and 3pm, stop by the beautiful Stewart Free Library. I’ll be there signing books and answering questions and reading an excerpt from Waiting For Spring.

The most common question I’ve been asked about AmazonEncore’s acquisition of Waiting For Spring and its subsequent rerelease is:

Are there any major changes from the original?

The good people at Encore left my book pretty much intact, which is code for “they didn’t water down the sex or language.” They also didn’t insist on cutting the length. They gave it a very thorough, and much needed, copy edit. I’m pretty sure the members of the editing team still dream about removing semi-colons from the text. There is a minor change near the middle that involves a decision Tess makes about employment. It does have a new cover, which I love, and the Kindle version now has a clickable table of contents (something I could never figure out how to do on my own). And that’s pretty much it.

Oh, by the way, a random commenter on this post will be sent a free signed copy of Waiting For Spring. Winner to be announced on Friday, May 13.

UPDATE: The contest ended on Friday, May 13. The winner is Susan Morris! Thanks everyone for commenting and for your continuing support!

  1. I’m not commenting here for the signed copy, because I’m one of two PaperRats, and you are the other of the two, so it would look fishy if I won. I’m just commenting to say CONGRATULATIONS!!!

    I do still expect to have a signed copy on my shelf at one point. Maybe later this month. πŸ™‚

  2. I can’t wait to purchase a hard copy! Congratulations. Since this is a giveaway I’m going to link this page to my sweepstakes board blog section.

  3. I was just talking to my mother in law about her Kindle and the possibility of buying one and reading more. Then Jennifer posted the link to your book and I thought I would check it out. It sounds VERY interesting. I can’t wait to get a copy. πŸ™‚

  4. I love to read and ready to try another
    new author. Continued good luck in your
    writing endeavors.

    g. enright

  5. Congrats! I am thrilled for you R.J. Waiting for Spring is a great book and I hope everyone gets a copy of the new release!

  6. Hey, just wanted to say I just bought a copy for myself. If I win a copy, I will pass it on to someone in my bookclub. We live overseas in Trinidad and our bookclub is voracious and always looking for the next great thing. All the best, and I’m excited for you.

  7. This is majorly awesome. I’m so happy for you! Sooooo richly deserved. This is a fabulous book. You should have bought stock in Kleenex the same time as the release. I’m sure it will soar.

  8. A friend said she bought this book last year BEFORE you were published. She said the book is terrific. I’d love to read it too. Congratulations on being published!
