Published October 14, 2014 by Ashley Townsend

Books

The next 7 days are going to be an awesome immersion into the world of books and authoring. My schedule this week is actually pretty exciting and eventful, so don’t forget to put all these awesome shenanigans down on your calendars and leave clever little Post-It reminders everywhere, because there’s a lot to keep track of. And I hope you’ll all want to join me for each of these super cool extravaganzas! All of the links and the info to participate in these events are at the bottom of the page. Don’t forget to share these events and dates with anyone who loves book-y goodness as much as me!

October 15th-21st (Wednesday-the following Tuesday)

Double Decker Books Blog Tour with “Chasing Shadows”

Okay, so tomorrow we kick off the Chasing Shadows Blog Tour at Double Decker Books. I. Am. Excited! Although I’ve participated in blog hops and tours before, I’ve never been the featured author being HOSTED on someone else’s blog. *giddy dance of pure joy* Here’s how it works: Tomorrow, Wednesday the 15th, “Chasing Shadows” and my interview will be up on one of my favorite blogs of all time, Double Decker Books. The tour kicks off from there, and I’ll be hopping around a few other blogs during the book’s gallivanting escapades. DDB will tell you where to go from there, and so on. So be sure to follow their blog and the book as it travels Around the Web in 6 Days! ^_~

October 18th 1-3pm west coast time (Saturday)

Chasing Shadows Twitter Release Party

And THEN we have the “Chasing Shadows” Twitter Release Party going down this Saturday. Please join us for fun, discussions about “Chasing Shadows,” and my sure to be hilariously awkward Q&A time with DDB. Just follow and tag @TownsendTales and @Doubled_Books during the Twitter Release Party if you want to ask me your own questions. They can be serious, quirky, ridiculous, hilarious, about writing, life as a person with multiple voices in their head, my fascination with time travel, riddles, etc., and also my obsession with the word etcetera. 

October 19th at 2pm (Sunday)

2014 Gold Rush YA Author Event at Barnes&Noble

There’s also an event I will be attending that I am super jazzed about. Barnes&Noble is hosting Livia Blackburne, Bethany Crandell, Stephanie Diaz, Maria Andreu and Tracy Holczer this Sunday for giveaways, fun stuff, and interviews with the authors themselves. I won’t be one of the authors speaking at this meet-and-greet, but I’m excited to just be a part of it! If you’re going to be in San Diego this weekend and decide to drop by, I’ll be the curly-haired blond with the pocket watch and starry-eyed gaze.

So, there it is. Quite the week, isn’t it? I hope that you’ll be able to join us for everything, and don’t forget to keep checking back here for my Serimone update of the week, Between the Pages. Hint: This week might have to do with a certain gorgeous, enigmatic, endearing blacksmith from “Chasing Shadows.” Which means you WANT to be here this Friday. Trust me on this one.

Join the Chasing Shadows Blog Tour

Published October 13, 2014 by Ashley Townsend

Double Decker Books is hosting me on their blog October 15th-21st, where we’ll kickoff the blog tour for “Chasing Shadows.” That means that you stop by http://doubledeckerbooks.blogspot.com/ the first day of the tour (the 15th), and then follow the links to find out who else is hosting “Chasing Shadows” on their websites. I’ve hosted authors on my own blog, but I’ve never been FEATURED in a tour! *squeal of excitement that shatters glass* 

… Oops.

You can also join the tour and other book tours by going to their website and signing up to host other authors on your own blog. Feel free to join the bloggers-author community! It’s full of a lot of eccentrics and is very, very entertaining. 

Also, put it on your calendars that we’re having a Twitter Release Party for “Chasing Shadows” on this Saturday, October 18th, 1-3pm west coast time (San Diego, CA). Double Decker Books is helping to promote the book, and so please be sure to stop by for the party to spread the word about “Chasing Shadows”! The first hour will be talking about the book, and then 2-3pm will be an author Q&A with me. So hit me with your craziest questions, and I’ll try to keep it to 140 characters. ^_~

Be sure to follow @doubled_books and @TownsendTales to join the Twitter Release Party. During the party, be sure to tag both of us when you ask your questions (there’s not limit), and you can use #ChasingShadowsBook when you tweet during the week about the party. Spread the word around the web so we can make this party HUGE! ^_^

Before the party, add “Chasing Shadows” on Goodreads:

THE PAPERBACK IS OUT!!!

Published October 9, 2014 by Ashley Townsend

its-alive

I just checked on Amazon, and the paperback copy of “Chasing Shadows” is alive. It’s ali-hi-hiiiive!!!

mad

No, my dear reader, you are not…. Actually, I don’t know you personally, so I can’t say for certain. At first I thought I was seeing things, too, because certainly it was too good to be true. But, no, THE PAPERBACK EXISTS!!!!

viclet's dance

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This is the moment I have been waiting for, anticipating, longing after since I turned eight: To see my characters come alive on REAL pages! After years of plotting and planning and writing and ranting, I can now rest and die happy. Sleeeeep!

die happy-rest Actually, no, I’ll just take more coffee and keep at the keyboard. No rest for writers! 😉

hula hoop

 

For awhile, I felt kind of like this little mouse with the cat watching it, desperately trying to make it happen for years and looking ridiculous doing it, with self-doubt leering over my shoulder the entire time. *small squeaky mouse voice* Faster, faster, FASTER!!!

 

 

 

Well, ha-ha! No more my furry little friends. This go-around, we actually get to touch the crisp texture of new paper as it turns to reveal a new page, smell the freshly pressed ink, gaze longingly at the gorgeous cover that Roan Carter lovingly–and patiently–bestowed upon this sequel. Boo-ya, literary world! I’m here whether you want me or not.

happy

…. But I’d really rather stay, so I’ll tone it down. I promise. Eh, who am I kidding?

exci

I was so excited that I kept doing this to random people, and it was freaking them out. Huh. People are so anti-social.

people are weirded out

My sister DeAnna and I are going to take a copy on vacation at the end of this month and turn her Instagram into a silly palooza of “Chasing Shadows.” Basically, we’re going to do weird things like have the paperback sip a cup of coffee, wear a silly mustache disguise, use toilet stalls, hide in bushes and jump out to scare passerby. It’s going to be friggin’ awesome! I’ll give you the details for her account soon so you can follow all the wackiness that is our lives. Best selfies ever! Although, it will be of the book, so it’s not technically a selfie. . . I don’t think.

in

Whatever, Inigo.

And if you haven’t fallen in love with these characters or this series by the time you finish, well….. Just no.

grumpy cat hasn't fallen for will

Let’s give a slow clap to the team at Ink Smith for allowing me to share this with you all!
