Today is the official publication date for Heroines of Mercy Street. If you pre-ordered the book, you should receive it shortly. If you’ve been waiting for it to appear on the shelves of your local library or independent bookstore, it could be there.* (If it’s not, you can ask them to order it for you. Really.) It’s available for Kindle and NOOK. It’s an audio book.**
In case you can’t tell, I am proud, excited and petrified. I imagine this is how it feels to have your child head off for the first day of kindergarten, or summer camp, or college.
To celebrate, I’m giving away three copies of Heroines of Mercy Street. To enter, leave a comment here on the blog, under the Facebook post where this appears, or send me an e-mail before midnight CST on February 29. You’ll get an extra chance if you attach a photo of the book in the wild.
And just a reminder, we’re also running a giveaway over at Wonders & Marvels. Follow the instructions there to enter. If there is no sign up box, leave a comment.*** (Emails and Facebook won’t count for the Wonders & Marvels giveaway.)
We’ll return to history proper on Friday, I promise. Though we’ll still be hanging out in the Civil War and there may be an occasional announcement about the book attached. Thanks for all your patience, support and bravos in the last few months. It’s been a wild ride.
* Not to mention Barnes & Noble. And Costco–which may sound funny but is a Big Deal.
**No. I’m not the one reading the book.
***We’ve had some technical problems.
