THE BIG DAY...

...IS FINALLY HERE!!!

That's right, people, after two years of sweat, tears, and pain, I've finally POPPED OUT A LITTLE BABY BOOK!!

Before I Fall hits the shelves today, so I thought I would repost the Top Ten Reasons you should Run Out And Buy It thisverysecond. (Or, okay, after you finish reading this post). This was originally posted by my friend Lucy at Delightful Reviews.

Top Ten Reasons You Should Buy My Book on March 2:


10. Because it will keep you off the streets!

9. Because everyone wants to be a trendsetter…and you can be one of the first people to own a finished copy—ever!

8. Because books are better than brussel sprouts. Depending on the book. And the brussel sprout.

7. Because if you hate it, you can tell me so at @OliverBooks on twitter.

6. Because at 480 pages, in hardcover, if you hate it, you can also use it to smack somebody upside the head. (Not that I’m recommending violence. I’m a lover, not a fighter, people.)

5. Because it doubles as a coaster, an arm rest, and possibly as a cake stand.

4. Because even though it doesn’t feature vampires, I promise it’s romantic.

3. Because you want to make me happy.

2. Because what else will you do today? School? Homework? Chores? Yawn.

1. Because you just might discover a new favorite book. Or at the very least, a book with a very, very pretty cover.


So what are you waiting for? Please people--go find my book and rescue it from the wilds of your local bookstore shelf...and take it home and give it a nice proper home and a place to sleep!


Love,

Lauren

A baby book? I prefer grown-up books, thanks. ;)

Seriously, though, #1 is right on the money. I don't normally go for photographic covers, but I'd definitely pick this up off the shelf cold if I saw it. Title doesn't hurt either.
