Hey, book reviewers, wanna read Tangled Tides before it's officially released?
My publisher has started taking requests for ARCs for my blog tour.

EEEEKKKKK! My story is going to be out in the world soon! People will give it bad reviews and say negative things on places like Goodreads and Amazon! *cries* No, I'm not being pessimistic. I'm being realistic. EVERY book gets a mix of good and bad reviews. It's just too subjective of an art. But still, eeeeeeeeeekk!
lso, yaaaaaaaaaay! My story will be out in the world soon! People will give it good reviews and say nice things about it. No, I'm not being cocky. EVERY book gets a mix of good and bad reviews. Mine has to get SOME people who like it.
*prays to the heavens and all the gods, including Medusa and Poseidon, to PLEEEASSE let some readers love it*

Okay, stressed-yet-excited rant over.

Just go here if you'd like to sign up for the Tangled Tides book tour.

Oh, and the fabulous Sarah Lapolla of Curtis Brown interviewed me. I'll be on her blog today discussing what it was like to get a book deal without an agent. Check it out:


  1. Me! Me, me, me, me, me! Yes, yes, yes!!! Ahhhhhhhhhh! So exciting, Karen. :-)

  2. I'd sign up, but I'm already getting a copy of it (*grin*) and I'd feel guilty taking away a chance for someone else to read your book. But I promise to review it once I get it and read it! I can't wait!

  3. Aaaah! My work computer has blocked it the site. I'll have to check when I get home. 5 more hours...

  4. Nice, I hope they pick me, lol! Can't wait to read TT!

  5. It's posted and looks fabulous because I can stare at your book cover ALL DAY. :)

  6. I just re-read the plot summary and WOW! I can NOT wait to read Tangled Tides.

  7. I just submitted my request! This sounds AMAZING! :o)

  8. I'm all signed up! And what an amazing interview! Super cool!

  9. HAHA! So happy for you! And of course it's going to get awesome, amazing, and WOW reviews! Can't wait for the tour! EEP!

  10. Applause, applause! I can't wait for the book. I just read your report over on Sarah's blog -- terrific!
