What is Shrinking Violet? It's a young adult novel about an extremely shy high school senior trying to find her voice and reach her dream of becoming a DJ, despite the obstacles that stand in her way.

The book is about to go on back order and in order for more copies to be printed, more people have to place orders for the book.

So here's how you can help:
Please tell anyone that you think might be interested to place an order now before it's too late. Guys, girls, grandmas. grandpas, you're never too old to read humorous teen fiction!

I'm also running a contest for those that want to have some fun! There will be four winners, each receiving a $25 gift certificate to iTunes or the bookstore of their choice.

MORE PRIZES ADDED: Kim from Butterfly Book Reviews ( graciously donated FIVE amazing arcs for giveaway, they include Ash by Melinda Lo, My Invented Life by Lauren Bjorkman, Give Up the Ghost by Megan Crewe, Candor by Pam Bachorz and Violet Wings by Victoria Hanley.

Thanks, Tammi!!

Hi Danielle, I just ordered a copy from Amazon for my niece who wants to go into broadcasting. She'll love it. Thanks for the heads up! And such a horrible thing to sell out in 4 months and be told, that's it, your book is dead. Sheesh!

I've been there so my heart is with you.
Sep. 25th, 2009 09:42 pm (UTC)
Kimberly, thanks for the support. I hope your niece enjoys the book! I hope it helps propel her broadcasting career:)!

Ordering a copy as I type :)

We'll save Sweet T yet!

Sep. 26th, 2009 01:32 am (UTC)
Thanks so much:)!
Sep. 26th, 2009 04:55 pm (UTC)
So unfair! Don't worry--we'll keep T's voice alive for sure!
I tweeted as ProdElektra, and I blogged here:
I have a book blog; so just send me a mail if I can be of any assistance: prodhi(at)live(dot)com. Take care till then, and I'm crossing my fingers that the campaign will be more than successful=D
Sep. 26th, 2009 08:46 pm (UTC)
Thanks so much for helping me out! I really appreciate it:)!

Saving T
Not only did I FB this and make you extra credit, I forgot to tell you that I emailed many of the English teachers at Palmetto! This is so indicative of the age we live in -- books have to explode on the scene or else. Did you read Alex's blog about Breathing Underwater? Can't they at least give books the time Mother Nature gives babies? Geez!

I'll keep on talking,

Sep. 27th, 2009 06:33 pm (UTC)
Re: Saving T
Mari, that is great! I really appreciate it. I read Alex's blog and thought it was awesome--very telling! Hope you don't have to go through this when your book comes:)!
Sep. 27th, 2009 02:55 pm (UTC)
Hey, Danielle! Facebook, Twitter and my blog -

And ordered it from B&N.

Sep. 27th, 2009 06:22 pm (UTC)
Thanks, Janet! You are awesome:)!! I feel the love!
Sep. 27th, 2009 10:11 pm (UTC)

Sadly, I don't really have any sweaters...
Sep. 28th, 2009 02:53 am (UTC)
Kristen, you are awesome! Thanks for the fab review and for running your own contest. No sweaters? Since I live in Florida I don't have too many and boy was I hot when I took my pic (it's still in thr high 80's here).

It's awful to hear that Shrinking Violet may go out of print. I'm unable to post a review as I haven't yet read it, but I'll keep on spreading the word!
