Is It Too Soon To Party?












In Over Her Head's official release date is June 1, but IOHH sightings are popping up all over the place. Actually, all over the country: Philly, Atlanta, Washington state, California, Massachusetts - and those are the ones I've heard from.



I hightailed it out to my local stores and stood there and didn't make a fool of myself, although I did sell at least one copy. Signed it, too. That was fun.

I also found out In Over Her Head is up for Best Book of the Month for June on http://answers.polldaddy.com/poll/1613859/. Voting runs 'til May 29.

And then there was this review I recently received from http://www.passionforthepage.blogspot.com/ :


If you’re looking for a great beach read have I got a book for you! In Over Her Head by Judi Fennell is a witty, funny, fabulous story about Erica Peck, a marina owner that is scared of the sea, and Reel Tritone, a Mer man who, obviously, lives in the sea. What follows is a rip-roaring adventure complete with stolen diamonds, death threats, creatures of the deep, and true love. Honestly, I’m not going to tell you much else about the plot. It sounds utterly silly. And I can’t really believe I bought it. But I did. And I’m telling you Fennell pulls the suspension-of-disbelief off admirably. Whether you’re at the beach, at the pool, or closed up in your comfy ACed house this summer, if you’re looking for a great romance I’d highly recommend In Over Her Head.

Excellent Read

So, does this count as a launch or do I have to wait until Monday?

  4. You have to wait for the official day. It's illegal to celebrate early. :) Terry, whose preorders are skyrocketing for To Tempt the Wolf and Legend of the White Wolf, and they're not even on any shelves yet, and who absolutely doesn't know how to wait!!! Go for it, Judi! :)

  9. Thanks everyone! For stopping by and the permission. Now if I could only get these pesky edits for Catch of a Lifetime out of the way, I'd open the bubbly!
