Reminder–Book Party tonight.

That title sounds like a bunch of novels will be standing around the vegatable tray making small talk and complaining about their bindings.

But no, I’m hoping people will be involved in this event. Oh–and not only will there be a few books to giveaway–two of those books will be ARCs of My Unfair Godmother. If you have teen daughters–or if you just want to come to a book party–please stop by the Hamilton Chandler Library
Monday, Nov. 29 6:00 p.m. for the My Double Life Book Party

I’ll do a reading, give some interesting back story on the book,and we’ll be taking pictures in front of the paparazzi poster. Enjoy a Double Dutch demonstration, double snacks, and dress as your “celebrity double” for a chance to win a doubled prize!

Red Carpet Book Launch–free stuff!

That sounds like I’m going to throw my book out the window, doesn’t it? (Believe me, there were many days during revisions when I wanted to.) But no, I’m actually having a Red Carpet event at Changing Hands.

There will be free stuff: Books, a Changing Hands gift certificate, school visits–and you just might win some of it. I think it will be a lot of fun. Bring your daughters, your friends, complete strangers who you’ve lured into your car–and go as glam as you want, because we will be taking pictures in front of a 4×6 paparazzi poster.

Here’s the info:
Thursday, May 13th at 7:00 pm.

All her life, Alexia Garcia has been told she looks just like pop star Kari Kingsley, and one day when Alexia’s photo filters through the Internet, she’s offered a job to be Kari’s double. She takes the job in order to finally meet the father she’s never known.

Alexia lives the celebrity life, even romancing the hottest lead singer on the charts. But is it real love if your boyfriend doesn’t even know your name?

Winners!

Mimilee and Bchild, your numbers are up. But in a good way. Send me your real addresses at jrallisonfans at yahoo dot com and I’ll send your ARCs out.

All the rest, do not despair. Hopefully I’ll pick up some more ARCs before May.

Oh, and no fair letting everybody know how the book ends. (Like any of my books end without the girl getting the hot guy. I mean, what kind of novel would it be if that didn’t happen?)

My Double Life ARC give-away

I feel bad for making anybody who is just dying to read my next book (I know that’s all of you, right?) wait any longer for the promised ARCs, so I’m doing the giveaway now–but if you didn’t read about the Faerie Festival then you have to read that blog too, as I’m once again trying to convince conference people that I have fans. So if you can go to the festival, please do. And when you see me, yell out, “There’s Janette Rallison, who is not my neighbor! I’m just a random rabid fan, of which there are many in any given crowd!”

Okay, that said, I thought I’d do a blog about the cover for My Double Life.

My idea for the cover was to show the back of a singer holding a mike, but with her fingers crossed. Thus conveying that she is lying. I admit it was sort of vague, but the Bow-Tied One likes to see my cover ideas so he can ignore them. I sent him my daughter modeling for this:

And this was one of the covers they sent me. I thought it was nice.

But they decided to hire a model and insert her into the cover. I do like the fact that they hired a model for the cover since that means I will not see this same picture pop up in a million adds like the picture for My Fair Godmother has. And she’s very pretty. However, does anybody think this model looks at all Latina? Yeah, I didn’t think so either. Apparently the photo shoot department doesn’t actually read the book.

I’ll be giving away two ARCs. If you want a chance to win just leave a comment telling me which of my previous books was your favorite. Followers get double chances. Good luck!
