Is it so tacky of us that we brought our own Release Day B’day Cake to the Scene 13 Blog today?? We couldn’t help it. We are sooo excited to see CAMP PAYBACK— Book #2 in the Camp Boyfriend series — available for sale!!
Can we interest anyone in a slice of chocolate s’more cake?? We’ve been toasting s’mores all night. Seriously, pull up a comfy log around the campfire and allow us to hit the highlights from our fun release week events.
First, we’ve got a Book Blitz going on. Huge cheers and thanks to the amazing book bloggers working with us through ATOMR book tours to spread the word about Camp Payback for us. We’re so grateful. There’s a grand prize for this one that’s open to international readers and we’re giving away six YA contemporary romance titles including: Far from You by Tesse Sharpe, The Break-up Artist by Philip Siegel, Destiny by Cindy Ray Hale, What I Thought Was True by Huntley Fitzpatrick, Open Road Summer by Emery Lord, and The Summer I Found You by Jolene Perry. Pretty awesome, right? ou can enter here and on lots of other blogs, too!
We’ve also been ordering new camp swag, which is always fun. Divas’ Den emery boards, cabin trading cards, new bookmarks… We could go crazy with those things, but we tried to rein ourselves in. Next, there was a Pinterest Contest during April where we cast the movie version of Camp Payback. Check out all the character pics on our board including Tyler Posey as Javier!
And then, there was the surprise fun note during all of it. While prepping for the release of Camp Payback, we got a message from the creative ladies at a new blog called Fluffy Reads. They were excited about the camp series and wanted to do a Read-a-thon of Camp Boyfriend. We thought it sounded like a great time to help readers get up to date on the series. It was so much more tan that!.
Sure there were interview and guest posts… Joanne wrote about why you can’t forget your summer love and Karen worked on the Q & A questions. (See how we always split the work 50/50?) We did the usual prep involved and couldn’t wait to be a part of the event.
But while we did our part, the Fluffy Reads hosts, Francine of Always Lost in Books, Sandra of Sandra’s World of Books, and Valeria of A Touch of Book Madness were working twice as hard to make this week extra special for us and for their followers. They organized the read-a-long, coordinated a Twitter party and a hashtag to keep the conversation going (check out what we said using #ReadCampBoyfriend), and organized a super yummy Battle of the Book Boyfriends that will definitely make you smile.
We hope you’ll check out the Battle of Book Boyfriends, and while you’re there, take a walk down memory lane at some of the guys’ best lines from Camp Boyfriend! Vote for Seth or Matt as your fav and don’t forget Seth fans… he still has a story coming :-).
But now that the Boyfriend Battle has subsided a little, we can fall in love all over again with a new hero. We hope you’ll join us and see what Camp Payback is all about 🙂
