On Target!

Monday, July 28, 2008

So, I received some incredible news from my publisher recently, news that -- literally -- caused me to aspirate my bowl of Kashi Go-Lean Crunch.

Target has selected the paperback of CONFESSIONS OF A PREP SCHOOL MOMMY HANDLER as one of its "Bookmarked Breakout Bestseller" selections, meaning the book will be featured prominently (can anyone say "End Cap!") at every Target store across the country.

Great, right?

And what's even better is the timing of this: The book will go on sale at Target October 12 and run through the holidays. So ladies, whether you're out picking up your kids Halloween costumes and trick-or-treat candy, buying a new tablerunner for T-giving, or doing your holiday shopping, drop by the books and pick a copy of CONFESSIONS. It will make this Santa very happy!

The new cover, btw, is pretty, pink and plaid (and so Charlie's Angels), so it'll make you look like you're carrying around a really preppy clutch while you shop.

Happy Summer!
xo,
Wade

OK, OK, your writing hooked me! I'll go to the Target nearby to pick up your book--even though it looks like it's been bombed, leaving a gaping hole because they're enlarging it (when I asked what's being added, the clerk said, "More of everything")and the parking lot is filled with construction detritus and trucks, but I won't go on the weekend, when nearly everyone w/in 10 miles is there.

I didn't go to a prep boarding school. Instead, I was sent to a girls' Catholic boarding school in Staten Island. A freelance journalist, I've decided to chronicle my experiences at Girls Sent Away.

I look forward to reading your book. But I have to wait until Monday. I read some of your writing on your site and love your voice.

Sandy ... thanks for picking up CONFESSIONS. It does look cute and pink sitting at Target, doesn't it? I took a photo, and almost got arrested, before I explained I wrote the book.

And Delia ... hope you survived Target. You must be getting a Greatland ... one day, I firmly believe, everyone will simply live in the parking of a Target Greatland or Wal-Mart SuperCenter. Let me know what you think of CONFESSIONS ... and good luck with GIRLS SENT AWAY! I have many, many friends who went to boys Catholic school, and -- despite being left-handed -- are now righties after years of having the nuns whack "that bad hand."

Happy Holidays!
