Lovely Links: 7/27/12

A few quick notes:

I am having some issues getting a Nook version of my new book
properly formatted and submitted, but I SWEAR it’s in the works!
Should be available in a week or two.
In the meantime, the print and Kindle/iPad versions are up and running.
More news soon, I hope.

I will be speaking on a panel at BlogHer ’12 in New York NEXT WEEK!
Let me know if you’ll be attending, as I’d love to connect.

Huge thanks to The Beheld and Weightless for their incredibly kind words about my new book!
