You’ve probably already seen it, but I’m sharing something that made me go WOW and totally fed my inner-geek this week. My girls–Sally Spitz and Snow-Soon Lee–would be all about it, and I am as well :). The light sabers, the female jedi who looks like she’s going to be a major Force in the universe (pun intended lol ;)), a bad guy that I can’t help but love (that voice!!!), and of course, the cutest creature in all of the galaxy: the Porg! <3 Here’s the trailer for the upcoming movie, Star Wars: The Last Jedi.
Sooooo, what did you think? Like I said, you’ve probably already seen it, but man! That was an awesome trailer. I also thought that glass/crystallized fox-thing was really cool. That said, I really hope nothing bad happens to the crystal fox-things or the porg. That would make this writer very upset :/.
In other news, the Happy Fall YA’ll Giveaway has ended and the winner of a signed copy of ADORKABLE will be announced next week! Yay! And you guys, I’ve been writing, working on my newest manuscript. I know you’re probably like, “Duh, isn’t that just what you do? Write?” Well, sometimes the words won’t flow, but recently they have been–and this book! Gah, I’m loving it. Double yay!! I hope you all have a great weekend. And of course, may the Force, the porg, and Becks be with you :).
I’ve seen giveaways around for other books, always hoped I might get to do one. And now that the paperback version of ADORKABLE is out, I can :).
FYI, for any first-time self-pubbing authors out there, you have to set the giveaway date 7 days before the actual day (who knew?). So I set it all up last week, and it just went live today. Anyone with a Goodreads account can enter and it is open to users in the United States.
What can you win, you say?
If you enter, you can win one of two signed copies of ADORKABLE! That means there will be 2 winners!! Again, I can’t wait. When I looked just now, I saw that 9 people had already requested, and I was like “yesss!”
This video combines two of my favorite things: tap dance and the music from Star Wars. And, of course, I LOVE how everything from the incredible taps to the light saber bows/trombone slide feed my inner geek. Postmodern Jukebox and Sarah Reich are a perfect combination; add in The Force, and I’m in love. For me, this is 100% adorkable :).
