Twitter, UK Book, and Graduation-ness!

Hello again! Okay, so my support request to Twitter resulted in a return email that basically said that since whoever is impersonating my on Twitter is not actually actively tweeting, they are low priority. So, yeah, whatever! I am going to start Twittering anyway!!! So here are five reasons you should follow "Aprilynne" on Twitter! (ETA, I WIN!!!!! You can now follow me on Twitter at Aprilynne Pike!!!!! *Also, if you already started following me on Aprilynne, don't worry, Twitter switched you over automatically.* Hooray!!!)

5.) Tour. There is never internet access in any kind of convenient location. But I can Twitter from my phone! So avoid the tour crickets and follow my adventures on Twitter!

4.) Get tidbits of news first! I blog every couple of days, but my intention is to Twitter quite regularly. So you'll get news first!

3.) Twitter Exclusives. Yeah, um, not actually on purpose but because my brain is a freakin' sieve and I will forget things . . .

2.) Really, who doesn't want to know what I'm thinking at three o'clock in the morning??

And the number one reason for following me on Twitter?

1.) Because I will probably--at least occasionally--get excited and accidentally Twitter about something I'm not supposed to share. *duck*

So yeah! Come follow me!!

I got an email from my UK publisher yesterday letting me know that the finished copies of my book are ready and they are couriering one to me!! Also, WINGS will actually be out in the UK on April 30. *whispers* That's only nine days away!!!!! Whoa!

My husband is taking his last final tomorrow. Like, last, last, last. The last final of law school!!! It had been a long and arduous journey for him but he has done SO well and will be graduating with honors on Friday. /me is proud!!

And lastly, today is exactly two weeks till WINGS is released. And I am SO excited. No, excited really isn't even the word. I getting frenetic. I am noticing a lot of CAPS and exclamation points (!!!!!!) sneaking into my posts and emails. I kind of bounce from place to place, and despite not eating much sugar, I seem to always be on a sugar buzz. If I am this way already I am a little concerned about how big a spaz I am going to turn into in another week! Ten days! Day before it's out!!! *big smile* I hope you guys are half as excited as I am!!! (Actually, perhaps even half is too much; that's a LOT of excitement!;))

Ciao!

Excellent use of the word "frenetic" ;)

And I'm following you on twitter now! :D

Adrienne said...

ooh! Let's do a twitter exchange, I'm "AdrienneKress"! (and I say at a time like this you are allowed as many all CAPS and exclamation marks as you want!)

Reverie said...

ohhh we're excited alright but you just completely cracked me up wide open rolling on the floor laughing.

Cannot wait to see your jitteriness next week... HA!

And yes!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We cannot wait!!!

! Also, WINGS will actually be out in the UK on April 30. *whispers* That's only nine days away!!!!! Whoa!AWESOME.

Jenn Johansson said...

Yay! So excited for you! :D

Amanda said...

So do you plan on a UK tour ;) that would be COOL! I am SO excited for you, and after that magnificent first chapter I am kicking myself for not buying the ARC on eBay but can't wait to get my hands on it!

WOO HOO to Kenny!

My husband graduated law school last year. What a relief, huh? Now there is just the Bar. That's all. Of course, being a best-selling debut novelist may ease the absence of a studying husband. Then again, Kenny sounds pretty smart and may not need to frantically beat his brains over the Bar. Is he still planning on getting his PhD? I thought I had read that on an earlier post.

Patti said...

The count down is on. I agree with Adrienne, CAPS and !!! all you want.

Carbonneau said...

So, I don't know how easy it is...but can we get the info to put a Wings cover picture and count down on our blogs??? So EXCITING!

Carbonneau said...

okay, so I'm a dork and asked before I even tried...you don't mind me posting it do you?

Kenny said...

By all means, Kati, post away. d^_^b

tomdg said...

So we get it first? How cool is that :) and how funny. I'll see if I can spot a copy and send you a photo :)

What's up Aprilynne? Okay, you just told me what's up. Way to go! This is super exciting. Jennifer and I are excited to read it. And yes, your excitement is infectious. That's why I used it three times.

Wes Harris said...

Oh ya speaking of the UK that is St. Paul's cathedral in London behind me. Have fun.

There are two lasting bequests we can hope to give our children. One of these is roots, the other, wings.

Very excited for you! only days to go!! I'm excited about my first book which isn't hitting the shelves until June. Must fly - I have to check out Wings on amazon!
I don't twitter, I'm afraid - still getting my head around blogging - but please visit my blog.

Leigh Russell said...

I just ordered Wings on amazon. The cover is beautiful.

My finished copies of my first novel were meant to arrive on Friday, and I was all geared up to go fetch - but then, they didn't. However, I remained very excited! So I completely understand! And mine isn't published til August 7. One Apple Tasted, a romance. Well done you, and please follow me at /JosaYoung, and I will follow you.
