AIN'T WE GOT FUN Release + Giveaway!

Once upon a time, two teenage girls began reading each other's blogs. Their names were Emily and Emily. They found out that they had 4 big things in common: Being homeschooled, their Christian faith, their love of writing, and, quite obviously, their name! They began commenting on each other's blog posts, and eventually started emailing each other in June of 2012. 
They helped each other through writing struggles and rejoiced with each other's writing victories. They facetimed, chatted on google, and eventually got to meet each other in July of 2013. They both had the same dream. They wanted to be published authors, and God made it happen. They both published a book within the same year. Emily Chapman's Cry of Hope released in March of 2014, and Emily Ann Putzke's It Took a War released in December of 2014. For a few years these two girls thought it would be fun to write a book together. So they tried to write one, but life was too busy and their handwritten letters were soon forgotten. But in December of 2014, Emily Chapman suggested that they try writing a story again, this time posting them on their blogs as they wrote them. They alternated the letters on their blogs throughout the month of January. Many more emails ensued and they collaborated on plot ideas and fangirled over each other's characters. Meanwhile, their faithful followers encouraged and cheered them on, which gave the girls an idea. After the story was finished, they decided that they would publish the letters into a beautifully bound book in May of 2015.

Which brings them to today. (That's rather dramatic sounding...)

To further celebrate AWGF's release, we're having a blog tour this week! A bunch of awesome bloggers volunteered to review AWGF, interview us, and host us on their blogs. We're so grateful!! Here's the line up for today:


AIN'T WE GOT FUN BOOK REVIEW BY AUDREY AT THE MEASURE OF A BOOK.


AN INTERVIEW BY CARMEL ELIZABETH.

CHALLENGES AND JOYS OF WRITING HISTORICAL FICTION (A GUEST POST) AT THE MISADVENTURES OF A GLOBETROTTER IN TRAINING.

Not only is it AWGF's release date but it's also my sister-in-law's 23rd birthday! She was a huge help in editing and polishing up AWGF, so it's fitting that the release day happens to be on her birthday. Thank you, Maria, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!


Also, it's Memorial day (Quite the exciting day all around!) and I would like to thank all those who served and are currently serving our country. Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Now it's time to CELEBRATE!! =) I'll be drinking lots of iced and hot coffee today ... I mean, my character in AWGF is Gi after all. =)

We hope you all enjoy this story as much as we enjoyed writing it!

    P.S. I believe I first heard about Ain't We Got Fun here on your blog, Emily Ann. :) Or maybe it was a friend's blog... But it's a clever idea to write an epistolary story with a friend!
