This week, I had the thrill of spotting Hidden City: Poems of Urban Wildlife in the wild! Loved ones sent me photos of their pre-orders upon arrival, and I got to sign a couple copies for my amazing local independent bookstore, Porter Square Books. (I may have been bouncy with happiness for the whole rest of the day...)
It was surreal to see my book in a bookstore. It is thrilling to know that Hidden City is being read and shared. Reviews are starting to come in, and it's being included in online lists. Next week, I have my very first book release party at Porter Square Books. (3 PM on Saturday, March 10th! If you're free, I'd love for you to join me!)
Hidden City is available to order, and it may be tucked into a shelf at a bookstore near you. To celebrate, I'm doing a giveaway! One lucky person will receive a personalized copy of my brand new book, selected from my author copies just for them. Here is how to enter:
1) Reply to this post. (I fixed the comment app!)
2) Share this post or any comment about Hidden City on Twitter, making sure to tag me. @sarahgtuttle
3) Share a photograph of Hidden City in the wild! Do you already have a copy? Is your local store carrying it? Share the photo on Twitter, making sure to tag me (@sarahgtuttle), or post it on the social media outlet of your choice and send me a link using my contact page so that I can count your entry.
You have until Monday night at 11:00 PM EST to enter the giveaway. I'll select the winner randomly, and announce who it is in a blog post on Tuesday.
Thank you for helping me to celebrate the release of Hidden City: Poems of Urban Wildlife ... and happy Poetry Friday! Head on over to No Water River to read about the amazing work of Michelle Heidenrich Barnes and see the roundup!
