ain't we got fun | release + giveaway!

The time is now, the day is heeeere . . . !

It's pretty nostalgic, looking back on all of this. Ain't We Got Fun has taken Emily Ann and I further than either of us ever expected. Gi and Bess have practically become a part of us. (Whenever I write Em a letter, I address it to Gi Rowland. Her contact in my phone is Gi Rowland. Our blogger profile pictures are of us dressed as Bess and Gi. Okay, we might be a little obsessed really excited about our book.)

The happy note about all of this? IT'S AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE AT LAST. All bound up in a pretty little book!

If, for some reason, you have absolutely no clue what I'm talking about (Hi, lovely new person! I'm so glad you stopped by!), my dear friend and I coauthored a novella. What's it about, you might ask? I'm glad you asked!

- 1936 -

It was never much of an issue for Bess: living contentedly on her family's farm, despite the Depression which loomed around them. But when her older sister Georgiana takes off to New York City to make a fortune and help Papa out, feelings of adventure and wanderlust strike Bess at home. Through their lively letter correspondence, the sisters recount to one another their adventures, surprises, and heartaches, leaving little room for depression. For in a world of such wonder, ain't we got fun?

But wait! There's more! (I've always wanted to say that.)

Are you ready for the unveiling of the Very Big giveaway? We've been working on this package for a couple months now, and I hope it does not disappoint. (Heck, I want to win this package. It's a pity I'm rather disqualified from entering.)








The big question is ... how can you enter?! Unfortunately, this giveaway is open only to those who reside in the United States. My sincere apologies to all of you dear foreign dwellers.

It's published! But the really exciting thing? This is only the beginning of the adventure.

One more thing! All throughout this week, Emily Ann and I will be stopping by various blogs, discussing our book and answering questions and fangirling over our own characters. We'd love to have you come join us! I will feebly attempt to keep you updated on where we are headed next. (You see, to be perfectly honest, Emily Ann is the Ring-Bearer and Wisdom-Bearer of the adventure. I'm merely the hobbit who was voluntarily thrown into the deal, blunders apologetically, and enjoys good food and song. And occasionally helps out by talking too much and giving Presents.)

  8. If I don't win this giveaway, I must buy the book! Since I just started reading your blog, I haven't read any of the story online, and I want to save it until I have a hard copy! You go girl, as an aspiring author myself, this encourages me so much!

    1. Hannah! I'm so glad you stopped by! I just stalked your blog, and let's just say that I think we'd get along very well. Anyone who loves Jesus and princesses and dancing and Disney is a new friend in my book. ;) Anyway, I'm so glad AWGF has inspired you! :) Thanks for commenting!
