The week before a book releases is probably the most exciting (read: terrifying, busy, hopeful) in an author’s life. And the impending launch of Titans is no exception. I’ve got lots on the agenda, including book festivals, school visits, a launch party, a Twitter party, and a way in which you can win my eternal affection. Here’s the scoop!

First, I’ll be jetting to West Oso High School on Friday and spending the day with the lovely students and staff there. Next, I’ll hit the Teen Bookfest by the Bay to meet readers, and deliver a keynote speech.

Then it’s a quick flight back to Dallas for a visit at Wilson Middle School, and a release party that evening at Half Price Books. The next day is The. Big. Day! My book will be in stores, and hopefully–please Baby Jesus–readers will snuggle up, open to that first page, and find themselves falling in love with Astrid and her steel horse.

The evening of my release we’ll have a Twitter party at 7:00 CST. If you can’t see me at festivals or school visits, then I hope you’ll consider stopping by online, asking a few questions, and entering to win some books. There’s also a blog tour going on through Rockstar Book Tours. You can read interviews with me, catch exclusive excerpts, and enter-to-win one of five finished copies of Titans.

And now for a way to get involved in the Titans release day. AKA, How to win my undying affection in two simple steps. Just connect your Twitter, Facebook, or Tumblr account to my Thunderclap.it page, and click “Support Victoria Scott.” It’ll automatically send out a one-time Titans message on release day. This takes 60 seconds to do, and will help me more than words can express.

I’ll have loads more school visits and festivals in the coming months. If I don’t see you during the next eight days, I’ll keep my fingers crossed that our paths will intersect at some point.

I’m ready to ride, you guys! Are you?!
