Borders and St Martin’s Press Helping Us Save the Contemporary
Look! Sarah and I try to chew gum and walk at the same time. Not as easy as the Commander in Chief implies. We’ve got the DABWAHA going full steam (don’t forget to vote) and in a week we’ll be launching the next selection in our Save the Contemporary campaign. Lisa Kleypas’ third contemporary, Smooth Talking Stranger, is slated to be released on March 31, 2009. Yes, it is a hardcover and the economic times are tough but if you can borrow a copy, we think that the charming romance between advice columnist Elle Varner, her sister’s infant, and one very hot Jack Travis will be worth the effort.
Or you can try to win one of the twenty copies that St. Martin’s is offering as a giveaway. Or if you want a copy of your own (and we think you will) you can use the 30% off coupon for the online Borders store. If you live near a Borders, you can have the book delivered to the store for no shipping expense.
Don’t miss Borders new media feature for romances: TRUE ROMANCE. Borders has also put online its popular “shopping list” of books divided by topic with release date. I loved seeing these in the store and am excited to see them online.
Stay tuned for more details on the campaign and how you can win 20 books from St. Martin’s backlist catalog. I know! 20 books. We were shocked and amazed at SMP’s generosity too.
