Laura Drake has news!

The Sweet Spot ARC BestFifteen years ago, I made a goal – to hold a book in my hand with my name on the cover.
Last week, that dream came true – the ARC copies have arrived! My debut novel, The Sweet Spot, will be released from Grand Central in May, but it’s available for pre-order here (you all know how much preorders help rankings, right? 😉

I’m giving away an ARC copy to a random commenter!

Just leave a comment, and if you win, I’ll send you either the paperback (U.S. residents only) or a digital version. Thank you all, for your support!

  1. Thanks for all the love, Jenny. Those are indeed some of the best posts here on WITS.

    Laura, that is a dream worth sharing. It must be the greatest feeling to know that all your hard work has come to fruition 🙂

  2. Diana Beebe says:

    Jenny, I’ll be digging through these posts all week! Thanks!
    Laura, congratulations! I’m so happy for you. 🙂

    Congrats, Laura. That is indeed super cool news! Love the list of blogs and I recognize quite a few. You guys do really good work here. Thanks for always having meaningful and helpful posts, Jenny.

    Jen, is Media and software guru and I thank you Jen for revisting these posts. It’s also very edifying. 🙂 It makes us aware of what kinds of blogs our readers love here at WITS. 🙂 And Laura, I think you took with a grain of salt when I said, you were destined to be published and soon. But honey bun this old gal is been around a few years and I KNOW big talent when I read it. This is one time when I’m so very happy to say “I told you so.” Now I’m going to pre-order a copy right now!

  5. Karen Duvall says:

    I can’t wait to read all these! This is my favorite writing blog and thanks so much for posting the links. Cheers!

  6. Great posts. A special congrats to Laura.

  7. Thank you for the links. The horse one is a “must” for me, of course. And congratulations, Laura. You must be over the moon!

  8. texasdruids says:

    Wow, Laura, congrats! It’s must be such a thrill for you to hold your own book in your hands. Best of luck with sales. I plan to pre-order a copy.

    Um, I’m just a wee bit tickled to see two of my posts on the list of fourteen. Yippee!

  9. I so love that photo of Laura!

    And because I’m avoiding revisions, I’ll be rereading all those posts. 🙂

  10. Huge congratulations, Laura! The cover looks great, you look great, and I’m loving that your shirt complements the cover cowboy’s. The links are tempting me, too. Orly, stay away from the links!

    • Laura Drake says:

      Lorrie – I’m a Detroit girl, so I wanted a ‘signing shirt’ that had a western theme. Looked for months before I found this one – just love it! Now, if I can make myself wear the cowgirl hat I bought….

  11. Julie Glover says:

    Pick me! Pick me! I kept reading passages from you in Margie’s classes and thinking, “I’ve got to read Laura Drake!” Congratulations on the book.

  12. Laura Drake says:

    Thanks to everyone! I hope you find great stuff in the links!

  13. The two links I just read were fantastic – the one about horses and the one about writing emotions. Thanks so much.

  14. Reblogged, tweeted, preordered and tweeted that, which is now being re-tweeted. Congratulations, Laura. My first, The Temptation of Lady Phoebe, from Kensington goes on pre-order in April or May.

  15. Yvette Carol says:

    Yes!! Well done, Laura on sticking to your dream with the tenacity to see it accomplished. Enjoy every moment. I can almost smell that new-book smell from here!

  16. C. K. Crouch says:

    Congratulations Laura on the ARC I hope to have one some day. 🙂

  17. I can hardly wait to read “The Sweet Spot,” Laura! I love cowboys in general, and bull riders in particular. Even ones who’ve retired from the rodeo ring!
