ICE COLD goes on sale today!

I’m having one of those “oh my god, now it starts” days. Because today, ICE COLD goes on sale across the U.S. Yes, it’s an occasion for celebration and giddiness that the new book will be in bookstores everywhere. But it also makes me want to crawl into a cave and not come out until it’s all over. I’ve gone through this many times before, and I know that in the weeks following a book’s release, an author rides a roller coaster of emotions. Moments of sheer joy that your book is out there. Worries whether those copies are selling.

But instead of writing a fret-filled post (I always seem to get into trouble whenever I write about author anxieties) I thought I’d blog about my trip to Hollywood instead.

(Sasha Alexander and me!)

    Congratulations, Tess! I can’t wait to dig into your new book! You are one of my favorite authors. I have had the “Ice Cold” release date on my calendar for months. I’m planning on cuddling up with my Kindle and downloading it tonight. Can’t wait!

    I preordered the book and downloaded it this morning on my nook. Nice author pic! Unfortunately, that’s all the time I had to view the book before I had to go to work, but I look forward to reading it soon. I have to remember to catch the tv show in a couple of weeks, too.

    I’ve already read it :). I simply wonder why the European version was available a week earlier. Got it last Wednesday and finished Wednesday night.

    Tess, it was wonderful seeing you in Camden tonight. Congratulations on your new release and on your TNT series. I can’t wait to watch it. I’m building up quite a collection of your books, most of them autographed. Thanks for being an inspiration.

    Tess, I picked mine up last night, and I’m planning on reading it during my weekend in Maine at my Grandmother-In-Law’s house in Tenant’s Harbor (Martinsville/Port Clyde area). Can’t wait.

    I have to say that this is the best Rizzoli & Isles book (in my opinion)to date. I read it in one day, I went home early from work (faked a headache) just to read this book.

    I also read it in one day, and I liked it, but I have to say that liked all the Isles/Rizzoli books. And I have to admit that it reminded me too much of other books of the series, as some plots were to a certain extent similar to what I’ve read in other books (Body Double and The Sinner).

    Nevertheless I’m looking forward to reading all the other books of the series to come. I’m addicted to Tess 🙂

    Just finished reading your new super book. Great, I enjoyed it very much. I like that you stepped out of the office , so to speak, and took a trip to Wyoming with some folks. I live in Wyoming and I think you drew a picture of the mountains, the snow , the wind all that makes winters dangerous. You did a good job of the people, some of them , as well. I am glad you had the nerve to step outside the office, as I said, and I think it is a huge success. I also had the same week the pleasure of watching the new tv show. I thought it was great and will watch it all.
    Did I notice an opening for your next novel at the end of Ice Cold? Hope so , I hope your as high as all the readers of your book and the fans of the tv show.
