Preorder Dad's Girlfriend and Other Anxieties before Oct. 18 to receive sweet swag: An exclusive Ava and Z custom art sticker designed by the cover artist Simini Blocker, a cute ground squirrels sticker, a rockin' bookmark, and a "Greetings from Scary Colorado" postcard.


But that's not all (as they say)! If you preorder from BookBar here and pick up the book at my launch party, BookBar will throw in a free drink! And there will be cake! And a gift card giveaway! I'll sign the book for you, too, if you want. What else are you going to do on a Tuesday night?

You can also snag the swag by preordering from The Bookies Bookstore here. I'll be there, too. (But no drink because Bookies doesn't have a bar.)

If you can't pick up the book in person, I'll include a signed bookplate you can stick in your book.


What if you already preordered from another place? No problem. Fill out this form, and I'll send you the swag (but no drink or cake). 

If you can't buy the book but want to read it and support me, please see if your library has it. If they don't, ask them to order it. Fill out the form, and I'll send you swag, too.
