Once Upon An Expat is Now Available!
Today is the day Once Upon An Expat is available from Amazon! You heard me right (not heard me write, cuz then I’d have to call someone). I’m in yet another book! This one is full of tales from distant lands. Not Milwaukee. I mean Asia, throughout Europe, The Americas, and one measly entry from Australia. Wait. That one was from me! There may be a bug involved and possibly some sticky tape. But, you will have to order the book to get the full story. Click my link here:
In Canada, it is only available on Kindle by downloading it through this link: Once Upon an Expat.
All author royalties will be donated to Books Abroad, helping promote literacy and education in developing countries.
I’ve ordered a copy to give away but it won’t arrive until the 20th. So, for one lucky commenter, I will send you a ‘signed by me’ copy of the first book I was in. Tales of Wonder, Woe, and WTF?! If you don’t win that one, you can buy it on Amazon.com with my affiliate link here: Martinis & Motherhood: Tales of Wonder, Woe & WTF?! or click the cute picture below for the Amazon.ca link. Comment on this blog by the time I get from BlogU on Monday the 13th and I will send it out next week.
Speaking of… I am headed to BlogU this Friday. This is a blogging conference in the States and I am pretty much terrified that my vision of myself as a writer will be squashed like an Australian green tree bug at Christmas. Shit, I gave away too much. Wish me luck and watch for the action on my Twitter and Instagram feeds. I’ll be back next week to send out the book and write about my adventures. In the meantime, here is what I wrote about when I attended the Canadian Blogging Conference Blissdom before I went the first time.
I was pretty scared then too and it turned out ok. I will have met at least one other person at BlogU in real life (Hi, Anne!), but beyond that, I will be sharing the weekend with internet friends only. Once we meet, though, they will be IRL friends and I’m going to have to order more Christmas cards this year. I’m ready 🙂
If you have any stories of being an expat, do share. Or, if you have been to a conference that intimidated you, fess up to make a girl less jittery. Please!
