Those of you who’ve been hanging out here in the Margins for a while now are well aware that I’ve spent much of the last two years* working on a global history of women warriors. Now it’s mostly out of my hands. (Though I did get a second round of copy edits this afternoon. The folks at Beacon Press don’t mess around when it comes to getting books right.)
Women Warriors is scheduled to release on February 26. Even though February feels like it’s right around the corner from my perspective, I realize that in fact it is seven months away. (Not that I’m counting or anything.) Between now and then there will be a pre-order campaign with some cool book swag,** some giveaways, etc. I’ll share big news here, but if you want the little news, details about speaking gigs, etc., you might want to sign up for my newsletter HERE.
I’ll try not to be all “My Book! My Book!” in your faces until closer to publication. But I make no promises, because My Book! My Book!
*Or four decades, depending on when you start counting.
**In fact, Women Warriors is now available for pre-order at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and your local independent bookstore. Pre-orders are important to authors because they are important to book sellers, who use them as a gauge of how popular a book is going to be and how many copies they should order.
