Over the past few weeks, I have been posting quite a bit about the Ninth Day team’s efforts to secure a launch venue and date. Happily, our efforts have paid off, and we are proud to announce that The Ninth Day will officially launch on Monday, December 16at 7 p.m. at the historic Koehler house (732 NW 19th Avenue), which is currently home to the law firm Kilmer, Voorhees, and Laurick. This building features prominently as Miriam Josefson’s home in Ruth’s first novel, Blue Thread. The team and I will be visiting the site this week to strategize for the launch, and the next few weeks are going to be busy busy busy with activities brainstorm and event planning.
In addition to the December launch, Powell’s Books at Cedar Crossing will host a reading from The Ninth Day this Friday, November 15, at 7 p.m. Ruth was also recently interviewed by Dan Sodowsky over at OPB about historical fiction and her writing process.
I was blown away by the incredibly comprehensive media brainstorms that John Hartman’s Transmedia Marketing class was able to come up with when I sat in on them last week. They have thought up some brilliant strategies to get the word out about the Blue Thread series. This conversation will continue when John, Ruth, our marketing lead, Adam, and some of the Ninth Day team meet again this week.
