NERD Release! And Contest!

INTO THE WILD NERD YONDER hits stores today! It's so weird when your book is released into the, ahem, wild. I know it's the release day, and you know, now that you're reading my blog, but it's not like there's some red carpet event. In fact, I'm wearing jeans and am feeling a little greasy today. Not red carpet-ready at all. Oh well. I did find a great new review of the book on the blog The Hiding Spot. Super sweet.

Now begins my plan of Rupert Grint contact. I need a catchy title to my plan. Let me think on it... I am partial to Conquest: Rupert. HA! Yeah, that's the title. See, the plan is that I send ol' Rupe a copy of NERD and tell him that the main character has pictures of him on her wall. The guy's gotta at least send me some form letter, right? At the very least? And at the very most, he will call me personally telling me that he's buying me and my family tickets to visit him and the entire cast of Harry Potter 7 (part 2) on set. Right? I'll keep you posted when I hear from him. Cause I will. And I'll post all of my pictures from the set.

Now to the contest: In honor of NERD's release, I will be giving away a signed copy of the book. All you have to do is go to a book store and find NERD on the shelves. Either take a picture of it, or just write down what book it's sitting next to. And you should also put it cover out so more people will want to buy it :) Then just send me the picture or send me the book neighbor's title, and you will be entered into the drawing. Woo hoo! Send all entries to julie@juliehalpern.com. I will draw a winner on OCTOBER 9. That should give people enough time to go to a book store and enough time for the stores to unpack their shipments. Sorry, Rupert, but you are not eligible because you are already getting a free copy [as if he will actually receive the book. Some mail handler will probably covet it. I know. I'm not that crazy.]. Good luck to all, and to all a good night.
