On November 15, 2016, I announced here on the Margins that I had a deal with Beacon Press for the book the became Women Warriors: An Unexpected History. One way or another, I’ve been talking to y’all about it every since. Today is the book’s official publication day. If you pre-ordered the book, you should receive it shortly. (Maybe even today!) If you’ve been waiting for it to arrive on the shelves of your local bookstore or library, it could be there already. It’s available as an ebook and an audiobook* as well as a hardcover.
In case you can’t tell, I am thrilled, proud, and petrified. **
To celebrate, I’m giving away two copies of Women Warriors. To enter, just leave a comment here on the blog (not on Facebook or Twitter please) or send me an email by midnight CST on March 8.
On Friday, I’m starting a special series here for Women’s History Month: four short interviews each week with some of my favorite history people talking about women’s history, what they do, and how they do it. It should be big fun.
Thanks for your patience, support, and bravos over the course of writing this book. It’s been a wild ride, people. Cross your fingers for me. With a little luck it could get wilder yet.
*Narrated by the amazing Rosemary Benson, whose style has been described as elegant and assertive. Which sounds pretty dang perfect to me.
**This is my eighth book and my third official publication date. You’d think the thrill (and the terror) would wear off. Apparently not.
I’ll share any big news here, but I’m not going to clutter this space with information about speaking gigs and small news. If you want to know where I’m speaking, you can find that information on the events page (which I’m going to update any minute now), or sign up for my newsletter: http://eepurl.com/dIft-b
