News from Farrah Rochon

Greetings, all!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Here's to a safe, healthy, and happy holiday season. I always look forward to this time of year with its festive music, cheerful decorations, and the spirit of giving that suffuses the air. Oh, and lets not forget the eggnog. :)

There are quite a few things to cover is this inaugural edition of the Farrah Rochon newsletter, so let's get to it. Here's the rundown:

1. Three months to the release of Deliver Me
2. Surprise contest! Winner announced below!
3. Blog-a-licious!
4. The Farrah Rochon Store
5. 2007 RWA National Convention

Here are the details:

Deliver Me in stores on February 27th!
Three short months from today (less than three, since this went out on Monday), my debut novel, Deliver Me will hit bookstore shelves across the nation. Things have been moving at such a fast pace; I’ve hardly had the time to stop and soak up the experience. However, I have a feeling it will really hit home when I walk into Barnes & Noble and see my name on an actual book. The anticipation is overwhelming.

Just a reminder, if you see Deliver Me out before the February 27, 2007 drop date, do not buy it, and let the booksellers know that it should not be shelved. Buying a book before the official on sale date is definitely a no, no!

Surprise Contest
In celebration of the launch of the newsletter, the three-month mark to Deliver Me’s release, and the start of the holiday season, I decided to run a surprise contest for the mailing list subscribers. The contest winner is MICHELLE TAYLOR of Michigan. Congratulations Michelle! She wins a decorated tote bag filled with promotional items for Deliver Me. You can check out the prize in the entry of today’s blog. Speaking of the blog…

RWA Does Dallas
The great state of Texas will be the host of the 2007 RWA National Convention, and after five years of attending as an aspiring writer, I will finally be there as a published author! The RWA Convention will be held July 11th – 14th at the Hyatt in Downtown Dallas. The massive booksigning, with over 500 romance authors, will kickoff the convention. You’ll be able to find me at my very own signing table! Find out more about the convention at RWA National.

Well, that about covers it. Stay tuned for more info as the release of Deliver Me draws near.

Until next time,

Farrah Rochon
