$1500 SoCal writing retreat!
Come to my home in Southern California and spend a weekend writing with me! I have a gorgeous resort-style home on nearly an acre, with beautiful gardens, a sparkling pool and spa, and a lot of room and quiet for writing, eating, talking, and talking about writing! You have to get yourself to San Diego, but once you're here, you're my guest. Five signed copies of the book included....maybe you'll even finish your own novel while you're here!
(TRANSPORTATION IS NOT INCLUDED...and arrangements for timing of your visit will have to be made with me privately...but we're pretty flexible to almost any time of year. It's always beautiful in San Diego!)

Hi! I think most of you already know...but my pre-order copies are in my hot little hands now, and although the book won't be released until February officially, you get yours early!
Over the next two weeks, I will be mailing out orders, so if the address you gave me 18 months ago is not longer accurate, or your email is no longer accurate, please let me know. You can email me at preblebooks at gmail.com
I would also ask that once you do receive and read the book, please write a review for me and put it into this google form. I'm asking for you to do this for two reasons: 1) I would like your feedback and 2) the book won't be officially listed on any sites until mid-November, and I'd like your impression to be fresh. I want to archive all the reviews/feedback for myself, but once my amazon and Barnes and Noble sites are active, I will email you what you wrote and ask if you would post it (or something else if you like) at Amazon and Barnes and Noble.
Here is the Google form link for you to log your review: https://docs.google.com/forms/d/18MbWpM4yu121QX0oue6yGgkE76_KhZkeFp6qyhku_0A/edit
