Day 169: Advance Copy

Before I left for Portland, my long-time friend and darling, dedicated reader (and sometimes more enthusiastic-than-myself New Thing idea generator) Courtney Cobb sent me a fun text message "Have you ever read an advance copy of a book?"

Well slap me silly. I had never even thought of it!

Courtney has been working part time at Barnes & Noble for most of her stint in college and has access to beaucoup books. So she gratefully sent over the book "Tales from the Yoga Studio," a little beach read novel that is crazy appropriate for me.

It's a novel about four L.A. yoga students, an actress, a dancer, a screen writer, and an ex-druggie who all find a tone body and peace of mind at Lee's Edendale Yoga studio. The studio falls on hard times, right when a major yoga studio chain comes in to take Lee's talent and use it in their repertoire. It could mean big bucks for Lee, but will she risk letting go of her friend family??

There's my less-than-stellar back cover summary, but you get the gist.

It was a classic girlfriends-make-it-through-hard-times together story, and I'm a sucker. Chick lit? Bring it on.

So yes, now I have read an advance copy of a book! It's now available for purchase on Amazon, so now that I've whetted your appetite, get it :)


  1. I think I'm going to add "New Things idea generator" to my resume. Whatcha think? ;)

    Glad you liked it!

  2. I see that as being a very strong asset to your professional career :)
