A little Reinhardt to start…
You know, I’ve been blogging about the whole experience of producing FINDING FRASER here from the beginning. It’s been — by turns — scary, hard, FUN, confusing and exhilerating. But I have to say — the last 24 hours have been the CRAZIEST of my life.
I have SO many people to thank, it’s hard to know where to start. I’m going to do a proper job of this in my next post, but for tonight, I just want to thank my friend Diana Gabaldon for giving this book a sweet shout-out on Facebook yesterday [thereby creating a small atomic wave of book sales!] and YOU for your support.
Readers have flocked to this story and embraced Emma to their hearts. In the past day I have had more people than I can count tell me they stayed up WAY to late to see where Emma’s adventures took them, and I could not be more delighted.[Sorry about those eye-bags, tho…]
So, thank you, THANK YOU, for sharing your love of FINDING FRASER with me! And in return, I feel I owe you a few answers to the questions I am hearing today. Here’s my best shot at them, but if I miss anything, let me know in the comments and I’ll chime in again later.
Okay, here goes…
1. Is FINDING FRASER only on Kindle?
Nope. For now, you can buy the book both as a trade paperback and in Kindle format through Amazon. Later in the summer, it will be available in as many other digital formats as I can muster, including audio! Right now we are working on getting it into bookstores near you, too, as soon as we can. But if you are stuck and can’t find a copy, email me at EmmaFindingFraser@gmail.com and we’ll talk! [I might have mentioned this before, but the paperback is BEAUTIFUL, and you get the benefit of the full, wrap-around cover!]
2. Can I get FINDING FRASER for my Nook?
Not yet. Later this summer, for sure. If you have a computer, you can load a Kindle app for free. Or… buy the paperback!
3. So, hey — is this story some kind of OUTLANDER Fan Fiction?
Nope and nope again, sez I! I have no objection to Fan Fiction in principle, but I do not write it. This is a story about a girl in love with a character in a book — someone with whom OUTLANDER FANS may well be familiar! — and the lengths she’ll go to find her own Fraser. And when I finished the first draft of it, the VERY first person to read it was Diana herself. You can read what Diana thinks about fan fiction on the front page of her website. <g>
4. Where can I find out more about Emma?
If you’ve read the story, you’ll know Emma’s got her own blog at FindingFraser.com. And you know what? She does! Go check it out. You can see pictures from her travels, order copies of the books and get a glimpse into her world. We’re still adding new photos every day, and there’ll be other treats in store soon!
5. How can I spread the word about FINDING FRASER?
Well, thank you for asking! I’d love if you tell your friends in person, on Facebook — wherever you keep ’em! — about the story, and I would ESPECIALLY love it if you would take the time to write a review on Amazon or Goodreads. Reviews are a great way to share your thoughts and connect with other readers who feel the same way. Plus — I LOVE reading what you think about the story.
I think I’ll stop there for now. Just let me finish by saying, in the last 24 hours, FINDING FRASER has gone from a labour of love to a #1 Bestseller on Amazon. For that I have YOU to thank, and I am thrilled beyond measure to do so.
