On-Shelf Day!!!

FRIDAY MORNINGS AT NINE is on the shelf today!!! It's part one of the release-day week and, first and foremost, I thank you ALL for being so supportive and enthusiastic as I approached this day... xoxoxox!!!

I'm headed out of the house for the morning to visit bookstores/sign stock with a good friend (and get some celebratory Godiva chocolate -- oh, yes, really), but I'm visiting 2 new spots around the Blogosphere today:
An interview with Joan Reeves at Sling Words and...
My first post on the new Girlfriends Book Blog, where I have some big giveaway news I've been anxious to announce. Please take a peek!!

And on a completely unrelated note, anyone else getting addicted to the new "Hawaii Five-0"?? (I love the semi-amused, semi-antagonistic relationship between Steve and Danno.) Which new fall shows have captured your interest this season?

WOOHOO!!!!!!!!!!!! Congrats Marilyn on another *fabulously awesome* book! If people don't read FRIDAY MORNINGS AT NINE and aren't touched, then they're robots. Another splendid story--kudos!! (Next round of Godiva on me!)

Kwana said...

Big huge hugs and and congrats on FRIDAY MORNING!! I'm so happy for you. And I'm with you on Hawaii 5-0! I'm surprised I like it so much. Great partner chemistry there.

Congrats! Looking forward to spying Friday Mornings At Nine in stores :)

Robin said...

YAY! Congratulations Marilyn! I'm so thrilled for you and agree with Pam. The book is fabulously awesome! I hope you have a great week filled with special moments you'll always remember! Thanks for gifting us with another wonderful read!

And yes, I'm LOVING Hawaii 5-0!!

Marilyn Brant said...

LOL, Pam!! I should *not* be allowed to eat *more* Godiva...but I'll never learn to say no :). Thank you, my friend. I owe you an email to catch up on everything just as soon as the chaos calms down. Sending hugs and good editing vibes your way!

Kwana~HUGE hugs back and thank you!!! And "partner chemistry" is the *perfect* phrase -- yes! I really only liked the opening music from the original show but, with this new one, I do love the main characters...

Thanks, Alita!! It's funny, I just came from the bookstore and I still get that zing of excitement seeing a book I wrote sitting on the shelf. When you spot one in a store, please blow it a little kiss from me. (Yeah, I do this myself -- I'm geeky that way. ;)

Robin, thank you so much!! You've been so great throughout all of this...MANY hugs and thanks!!!!

Tonya said...

Congrats to one of the best, newest writers around!!! I can't wait to get my hands on my own copy!!!

Maria Geraci said...

Congratulations, Marilyn! I can't wait to get my hands on this book. Amazon emailed me a couple of days ago to tell me my books were in the mail. Can't wait!

I LOVE the new Hawaii Five-O. I think I have a crush on Alex O'Laughlin :)

Marilyn Brant said...

Tonya, you are such a sweetie!! Thanks so, so much ;).

Maria~we would not be hot-blooded women if we didn't have a crush on that man! Did you SEE his abs in that beach scene last night?! Ohhhh, my... ;-)

Edie Ramer said...

Congratulations again! I'm so happy for you. May Friday Mornings at Nine fly off the shelves!

Caryn said...

On the shelf, yes, but if only it were on my Kindle, too! I just realized they don't send out the Kindle edition until October 1st. It just builds the suspense, I guess. Can't wait to read it!

Maureen McGowan said...

Huge congratulations, Marilyn!!! I only watched the first episode of 5-0 but I agree it was fun. (And Daniel Dae Kim is one of the hottest men on TV.)

MicheleKS said...

Congratulations on your book release! Chocolate is an excellent way to celebrate any time.

And Alex O'Loughlin can crack open his six-pack for me anytime. But I love his dead-pan sense of humor and when he grins... sigh.

Margay said...

Congratulations on the release!

I absolutely LOVE the new Hawaii Five-O. The entire cast is amazing - talk about eye candy - and it's in Hawaii. What's not to love? I love Danno's wise-cracking and Steve can just stand there and do nothing and I'll be satisfied!

Like the new Hawaii dislike Lone Star

Marilyn Brant said...

Edie, thank you, sweetie :).

Caryn, I know!! That's the reason it's really a week-long event! First the on-shelf date...then the free downloads for JANE (!!)...then the official Oct.1st release... Hope you'll like it!

Maureen~DDKim is awesome! And congrats to YOU on your gorgeous new book covers!!!

Michele~I think I should be eating chocolate WHILE WATCHING Alex and his fabulous abs...this sounds more like a celebration to me than the inevitable kitchen cleaning that awaits ;).

Margay, thank you so much for the congrats and I'm so glad you're a fellow Hawaii 5-0 fan, too!!

Karin~I *just* read that they cancelled Lone Star after only 2 episodes. I haven't seen it, but they certainly made the decision quickly!

Thanks so much, Cindy!!
