In Australia/NZ, The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square will be coming out in March ’08, so within a month of the U.S. pub date. That’s a contractual thing, so you can be sure of it.
I have been getting a lot of email queries lately about Book Six. There is a link to a full post about pub dates, etc, in the right hand column.
Out of the blue I have one extra advance reading copy of Pajama Girls. Interested? Leave a comment to this post, and one winner will be drawn at random. But there are a couple restrictions you have to agree to (and which, by entering a comment, you are agreeing to): 1. You will not sell the arc before the pub date (02.14.08); 2. You will not publish any kind of summary or information about the novel, including plot and characterization — unless you are writing a review for a wider audience. In that case, please contact me first. And that’s it.
So toss away. I’ll pull a name next Monday.
I would love to have one ARC of Pajama Girls. I am longing for a new story of yours. I have read all of your books twice, and now I am here, waiting for more…
Please, please, please!!! I would love an arc of Pajama Girls. I am a (relatively) new reader of yours and very much enjoying your novels.
Me!Me!Me!Please! As far as I know I’ve read all the books you’ve published and Feb. seems a very long time away.
Oh yay! I was hoping this opportunity would come up. Would love an ARC of Pajama Girls!
Oh, please put my name in the hat for the ARC of Pajama Girls! Really looking forward to the release date!
I’d love to win a copy of this book.
A life in Pyjamas sounds really great! This is why I would like to work from home – if it was good enough for John Maynard Keynes . . .
Ooh, put my name in the hat, too, please! I’d love to win a copy. I agree to your terms (in case you needed me to say that here).
Please add my name to the hat. Out of curiosity, is the hat as decorative as the slippers?
Thanks for letting us know the release date for Australia/New Zealand. Though I’d adore to get the ARC before then and not wait until next March!
Yay! Toss my name in the hat please!!!!
Woot a chance of gettin’ it sooner? I’m in :)
It would be great to have this chance to read the Pajama Girls. What a lovely giveaway. Thanks.
Put my name in the hat! Waiting for new books I’m excited for is torture, just ask the ladies I work with at my library. Friday is when UPS delivers all the new books, and opening the boxes is like Christmas.
Even if I’m not lucky enough to win this advance copy of Pajama Girls I’ll be buying it for sure but March seems so far off!!
Plus I need to top up my library, after three weeks sick I’ve gone through my ‘to read’ list.
Even though I never win any contests, I would love to have my name thrown in your hat. However, if I do win, I will definitely buy a copy for my mom. So good luck to you all ladies (and men…)!
I’ll wait until the publication. But I wanted you to see this excellent article by Pat Conroy on censorship:
Oh, yeah. Please toss my name in the hat. I’d love to read about some home girls.
It’s fun to win things, but I can wait – My daughter (whose birthday happens to fall on Valentine’s Day), asks: “How does the computer know it’s you, Mommy?” when she sees the “Hi…____” on the screen. Ah, learning to read – what fun! As well, she asks: “Who is that lady?” I point to books on my shelf nearby and say, she writes books like these. How wonderful to be able to say this to a young girl. Thank you for being a writer, Rosina.
*hyperventilates with excitement at the thought of possibly winning an ARC of Pajama Girls*
Hi Rosina! Please plop my name in the draw :-) And very very good news that there is a release date for Pajama Girls for those of us at the bottom of the world – I am so looking forward to it!
Are you kidding – I’m always willing to throw my name in for a new Lippi/Donati book.
Yay, not long to wait after the US release! Can’t wait to read this, and an ARC would make that wait even shorter! Count me in!
I would love an ARC for Pajama Girls! :)
Add my name to the hat, too! I love all of your books.
Please put my name in the hat! I have thoroughly enjoyed all your books and I am looking forward to Pajama Girls!!
Please toss my name in the hat. I would love to get an advanced copy, I don’t want to wait till Feb. 08.
I would love an arc of The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square! Pick Me Pick Me!
Hi! I too would love an ARC of your new release. I am also a great fan of the Wilderness books and am looking forward to the newest in the series.
I’d like to enter the drawing for Pajama Girls! Thanks, Rosina.
Count me in!
Please put my name in the hat Rosina,I am glad to see the we will get the book in March, but sooner would be fantastic.
I don’t want to wait till Feb. 08 either. Please put my name into the hat. Thanks!
I hope I win! I don’t think I can wait until February.

Please throw my name in the hat too, love your chances at new and used books. I already have it preordered but I have a lovely granddaughter who would like a copy also.
I would enjoy reading this book. What a great giveaway. Thanks.
Oh, goodie, I love a contest. Toss my name in please. Thanks!
I am assuming that Pajama Girls is going to be published under the name Sara Donati like Tied to the Tracks. Is that correct?
Marg — Down Under, all my stuff is published as Sara. So, yes.
Cool…thanks for confirming.
Please put my name in the hat for the ARC.
I agree to all the conditions and would love to win a ARC of your book “The Pajama Girls of Lambert Square”. So Rosina, please toss my name into the hat also. Thanks.
Having just found your Wilderness series and reading through book 2, I would love to read Pajama Girls now. Please throw my name in the hat! Thanks! Pam
Asdfg that was a great essay.
Would love to get the chance to read this new book sooner rather than later! And I promise to abide by all the rules!
