Hey, I'm on Goodreads!

Before I start, I want to thank the lovely ladies at Falling for Fiction for hosting the Hookers and Hangers bloghop this week.  It was so much fun! 

So I signed my contracts in April which means it's been three and a half months since Sapphire Star Publishing made my wildest dream come true.  To tell you the truth, I'm still all woo-hoo-floating-around-on-cloud-9-while-my-family-gets-annoyed-with-me-for-being-so-flighty.  If you've followed my blog for any length of time then you know how ridiculously long it took me to get here.  For me, the writerly things that come after the contract are so much sweeter than they might have been back in 2006 when I sent out my first query. (Incidentally, I sent out my first query on 4/12/06 and signed my contracts on 4/3/12 so that's almost 6 years to the day.)

So I totally got butterflies when I was recently granted an Author page on Goodreads and I was able to list Finding Claire Fletcher on there as well!  Woo Hoo!



So if you want to visit my author profile, go here!

If you want to visit my book, go here!



And if you think you want to read it when it comes out (12/6/12), please put it on your TBR list!  Later, after it comes out, if you read it and like it, you can give me a good review!  (*wink, wink, nudge, nudge*)

Also, my old website:  www.lisalregan.com will be no more as of July 24, 2012.  I've gone from Lisa L. Regan to Lisa Regan (as you can see from the cover).  I only ever had the L in the middle because www.lisaregan.com was owned by a dentist whose name was neither Lisa nor Regan.  I could never get the domain.  But literally 2 days after I signed my contracts, the domain became available, so my new website is:

www.lisaregan.com

If you go there and click on the Mailing List tab, you can join my new, nifty mailing list.  I'm still experimenting but I can tell you that if you join, you'll receive updates and nifty postcards like this one:



 . . . and whatever else I (and my mom) can come up with!

As always, thank you guys for all your support!  This online writing community has kept me going through so many things!  It is amazing to be able to share these things with people who totally get me and are just as excited as I am!  You guys are awesome!

  6. Good for you for snagging your own domain name! jenniferhillier.com is owned by a real estate agent, who then directs you to another site, so I had to go with .ca and .org myself. Ah well.

    And congrats on the Goodreads page! So much good news. I love it, and you deserve every bit of it.

  12. Congrats on the new author & book pages! It's fun to track how people add your title to their TBR list. Or, as in my case, give you a review, especially a great one. My you receive nothing but 5 stars & glowing reviews! Speaking of, I also posted about Goodreads today & even posted the review I wrote for FCF. I hope it brings you traffic & adds to many TBR lists. And yeah, I'll have to sign-up for the mailing list, too, though I have a sneaky feeling it's noy necessary for me to find out all your updates this way. *giggles*

  16. A save the date card! What a great idea!

    I added it to my TBR list, although I'm not likely to forget! I'm hoping to get it for Christmas. :D

    And maybe the dentist's name was Lisar Egan??
