That’s right. Thousands of copies of my new book are going to be given away FREE of charge. Where?
At the National Council of Teachers of English (NCTE) Annual Conference taking place later this week.
Look, NCTE rocks so if you are going to be at the big event, please feel free to stop by the Disney booth and ask for a complimentary book if you’re interested.
Tell ’em, “Alan sent you.” (I always wanted to say that.)
NERD GIRLS is my first comedy. (I’ll tell the story about the birth of this series in the weeks ahead, but in short, life is so darn serious these days that I really wanted to flex another writing muscle and simply pen an LOL comedy – something that would bring a bunch of genuine smiles to this oh-so-bonkers world. As it turns out, Disney scooped it up right away when I showed them the first draft and paid me more money for it than for any other book which I have yet published. Indeed, it’s been very, very well received so far.)
Laughs. Friendship. Nerds. It’s a moment years – if not decades – in the making for me and NCTE 2010 is the official launch!
I am so fired up.
BTW, I’ll be signing at 12:30 on Saturday in the Disney booth.
One warning, while Disney will be bringing a boatload of copies to NCTE, they will get scooped up quick. (As an author, I can’t really say that this is a fact that bothers me, though.)
For those of you not going to NCTE, I have a host of other stuff planned. Click here to learn more. (And check out the web comic I am starting, too.)
