It’s Official!!! (Psst! There might be free stuff in here.)

Today is the big day! ATRIA BOOKS versions of SLAMMED and POINT OF RETREAT are now available as ebooks. Paperbacks will follow in September. Let me tell you, it’s been a crazy busy week for me, but I can’t imagine how crazy it’s been at the Simon & Schuster offices.  I’ve discovered the reason behind the New York saying, “The City that Never Sleeps.”

It’s because it’s true.  They never sleep!  They work, work, work all hours of the day and night, and I couldn’t be more grateful for the beautiful things they have done to my books in such a short amount of time.  Not only have they updated the covers to form a more cohesive look, but now I’m lucky enough to have quotes on the front from two of my favorite authors, Tammara Webber and Jamie McGuire!  OMG!  How butterflying cool is that?

AND the editing.  Wow!  Just…wow.  I think I expected an edited manuscript returned to me that pointed out my formatting and punctuation errors and that would be that.  But no.  They went above and beyond.  They pointed out things that I never even thought about.  Here’s a little “behind the scenes” example:

In the poem “The Lake” where Will says something about “In-N-Out” burgers, they pointed out that there aren’t any In-N-Out burgers in or around where Will lives, so would he really use that restaurant as a reference in the poem?  Of course, I couldn’t change it because for one, we have this performance by Marty Schoenleber where he recites the original, so I didn’t want to make it different.  And two, because In-N-Out burgers are just really, really good.

I’m getting off subject here.  My point is that it was obvious they really took their time (albeit, in a hurry) and I appreciate them for that.  A HUGE THANK YOU to Judith Curr and Johanna Castillo for making me feel so welcomed into the Simon & Schuster family.  And to my amazing agent, Jane Dystel, for her tireless dedication to not only me, but all the authors she represents.

It’s people like this that make me even more stoked that I made this decision.  ATRIA BOOKS has been an absolute thrill to work with. And the best part?  You know these giveaways I like to do?  Yeah, well…they’re gonna let me keep doing them.  And the bester best part (yes, I said bester) is that I’m doing one right now!  And the winners of THESE signed books get the beautifully edited and signed publisher’s editions!

When a publisher takes over a self-published book, a lot goes into the process of uploading the new books to their platforms.  The issue that arises is that there is no way to transfer the ranking from the self-published version to the published version, so the published version essentially has to start over.  This is where your chance to win comes in.  I’m going to post links here for the new versions on all platforms, so share them wherever you want.  Twitter, Facebook, on your blog.  Let me know where you shared in the comments and I’ll enter your name into the drawing.

I think another random kindle fire giveaway on top of the S&S versions of the books is the perfect way to celebrate! :) THIS GIVEAWAY ENDED 08/14

Wrapping up, if you want to be entered into the giveaway for the official published editions of SLAMMED and POR, or you want a chance for a kindle fire, then repost this new link and come back and comment that you did so.  If you are a blogger and have the old link, simply replace your link on your review with one of these, then come back and let me know in the comments.

I just (gulp) unpublished the self-pubbed versions of these books and they soon will no longer be active.  Once again, thank you all so stinkin’ much for everything.  From the amazing reviews to the word-of-mouth.  I will never, ever forget the readers that are the driving force behind the success of these books.  As always, y’all butterflying rock!

Here are the links to all platforms:


Very nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I have truly enjoyed surfing around your
blog posts. After all I will be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!

Shared on facebook and twitter you are amazing and I love your books x


Posted on my Facebook. I have not had the chance to read the books yet, but I am so…looking forward to starting them soon. I have heard wonderful things about the books.


Posted on my Facebook and twitter! LOVED the books, so happy for you!

Hi Colleen!

I can’t tell you enough how much I enjoyed Slammed and Point of Retreat! I’ve already recommended the books to all of my friends that read. My cousin is currently reading Slammed and constantly telling me how much she is enjoying reading it! I also felt so moved by the books that I posted about them on my blog! ( Although I’m not poetry writer I have become more interested in SLAM poetry and maybe, one day, I’ll be brave enough to do one!

Again, GREAT BOOK! Keep it up! (=

Hey, Colleen! I bought ‘Slammed’ in amazon kindle store on 10/8/12. It was by then #2 in kindle paid!!! I read it last night and COULD NOT STOP till the end. Talk about blocking your characters’ bliss and making readers feel pain and passion!

This morning (in Australia) I was back in the kindle store and could not see Slammed anywhere – odd – even when I searched. Hence I came to your blog to answer the mystery. And so now I have posted your new links in the writers’ forum I’m in, and also on fb and in fiction writing group there. 1) cos I’d love to win a kindle fire!! (or your books, of course) 2) cos I want everyone to have that great reading experience 3) cos I’m excited for you and your success/journey!

Congratulations and so very well done.


Congratulations!! Im so damn happy for you. Thank you for staying so connected to your fans even with all this craziness going on! You are amazing. :)

Congrats!! This is awesome!

I tweeted the new Amazon links for both books on Twitter @christinafiorio and I also tweeted about the giveaway

Posted on Facebook with the new Amazon links (Christina Rita Condomaros) and I also posted about the giveaway

I commented yesterday with all the links, but my comment is still awaiting moderation so I think I did something wrong – sorry about that! So I figured I’d comment again.

Thanks so much! I’d LOVE to win:)

ccfioriole at gmail dot com

I posted the links on tumblr with a short review. In the next coming days I’ll be making a proper review and posting it on my group’s blog.

As for In-N-Out in Will’s poem? Okay maybe there aren’t any in his area, but he could have had them on vacation! I’m glad that they caught that, but let’s step back for a minute and imagine Will and his family taking vacations. Is it possible he would have had it in 4 of the states they are located in? Yes very much so.

Happily posted the links on Facebook and Twitter (@Mspirit13).. Both books were awesome!! I just might have to read them again and again and again and again!! =]

I love these two books. It was such a beautiful love story. I can’t wait for the next book. I don’t like to read, but I could not put these books down. When I was at work, I couldn’t wait to.get home so I could read more about Will & Layken. I love her name.

Congrats Colleen!!! So happy for you! Shared on my fcbk pages and twitter! Commented in the morning but it still says my comment is awaiting moderation. Hope this one comes thru! You rock & thanks for the giveaway :)

I just posted your link to Facebook and I was thrilled to do it! I have been recommending these books to everyone who asks me for suggestions. Thank you for your generosity with this giveaway and congratulations!

Hey there Colleen,
Congratulations on all your success! I have posted the links on my facebook and twitter accounts. Thank you so much for including the link to the unlisted Marty Schoenleber YouTube entry I had been looking for that!

Congratulations Colleen! You and your books rock so you more than deserve the success. I can’t wait for my friends to read your books too! Anyway, I shared this awesome news on Twitter :)

I am so happy for you Colleen. Your an amazing author and I can’t wait to buy your next book. I shared the links again for you!!! I have had a lot of friends tell me that they read your books and they really liked them and actually thanked for me recommending them. lol

I shared both links on my facebook page. I don’t twitter, pinterest, or blot. But I have sent over 50 text messages to friends & family! I hope those count for something! You soooo butterflying rock! CONGRATS

Read your books this week and can’t say enough good things! Would LOVE copies of the books! Posted it on my Facebook page.

Congratulations again, Colleen! I posted on Twitter. My handle is @AnnaLiisaLand. Not only do I love the books but I am so fascinated by the story of YOU and how you crafted and self-published these books while being a working mom and having a busy, full personal life. So many of us wish we could craft our own careers and get our writing out there–you are living the dream and that is inspirational!

Congratulations again! Shared your link on fb! Loved these books and can’t wait to read more!
