Launch Day!

Yippee! It's launch day for Construct A Couple (.com; .co.uk for 99c/99p), and there's lots of exciting stuff going on! 


Over on High Heels and Book Deals, I'm talking about how many drafts I go through, among other things. 

On Trashionista, you can enter to win a copy of Construct A Couple


The lovely Meredith Moore has posted a rather nice review of Construct A Couple on her blog. Thanks, Meredith!


And to celebrate the launch, Build A Man will be free on Amazon for the next three days (.com; .co.uk). Yay! Grab your copy now if you haven't already. 


A big thank you to everyone in blogland who, as always, is super-encouraging and supportive. So grab a glass of wine, champagne, or wine, and tell me:


What do you think makes a successful couple? 


I'm going to say patience. For both Mr TR and me!


Have a great day, everyone, and thanks for dropping by to help me celebrate!

    What makes a successful couple? I think common interests, humour and as you said, lots of patience!

    Patience is definitely a virtue. I'd also say friendship first, and a good sense of humor :D

  20. Hi Talli!
    Congratulations again :) I started reading it last night and I'm loving it already. It makes me smile because my hubby is called Jeremy (well, Jez, but his mum calls him Jeremy)

    What makes a successful couple? I'd say, giving each other a lot of space, and letting the other person be themselves - not trying to make them more like you!

    Hope you're having fun, Love Jo x

    ReplyDelete
  21. Congrats, Talli! I always love your book covers. I'm hoping to read this one soon!

    What I think makes a successful couple? Patience is definitely good, as is honesty and communication. Most of the couples I know who have problems have them because of a lack of communication.

  22. Yea! Congratulations!! Pour the champagne!!!
    Now I'm going over to see how many drafts you really do :)

    ReplyDelete
  23. Yay! Huge congrats Talli! I need to get on this series, it sounds right up my alley. And I'm going to go with the opposites attract - different strengths and weaknesses helping eachother out kind of couple as the key to success. But at the same time they have to have similar likes and dislikes. Otherwise spending time together might prove difficult.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Congrats! on everything! And I think success for a couple means only one can vent at a time. Not two. Only one. The other can simply nod. They can glare. They can even laugh. But only one can vent at a time.

  25. Congratulations again, I hope I will be reading this soon myself Talli. I am here catching up on all the posts I missed during my computer woes, so good to be back but at least I have been able to keep in touch in other ways!

  57. You do have a lot going on! That's exciting -- congratulations on what I trust will be another successful launch!

    What does it take to make a successful couple. Trust. Something that takes time to build but once it's in place, the pair can move mountains.

    Have a great weekend, Talli!
