I am so excited! Julie is one of my best friends in the whole world, and her very first book was released yesterday!!!!
The Hard Way by Julie Luongo, available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Borders and other fine retailers.
Julie and I went to grad school together and I've seen this work in many, many variations, drafts, outlines, etc., and it just kept getting better and better. I am so unbelievably proud of her and I know it's going to be a huge success. I was thrilled to open my package from Amazon yesterday and see the finished product in my hands, and I got an email a little while ago from another friend who ran across it in a B&N in New York. Very exciting stuff, I tell you.
This is also my 100th post, so in honor of that as well as my friend and her fabulous book, I will give away a copy autographed by the author herself to a randomly selected commenter on this post. I'll leave it open until Monday, June 2, to give everyone a chance to get in on it.
