WCIBY Sightings!


Tomorrow is the big day!  WHY CAN’T I BE YOU hits shelves.

You might think I’d be used to this now, but you’d be wrong.  My belly does a backflip every time I think about it.

I’ll be on 13 Wham News This Morning toward the end of the 7:00 hour.  And chatting with Bill Kenower, Editor-in-Chief of AUTHOR Magazine on Author2Author Radio at 5PM EST.

And WCIBY has started to make appearances across the internet.  It’s’s Red Hot Book of the Week, which means for a little while this morning, I was sharing webpage space with Bradley Cooper and a muscular gold guy.

WCIBY Pre-Order Extravaganza!

Allie Larkin giveaway


Guess what? WHY CAN’T I BE YOU hits shelves next week!  

Since one of my favorite organizations – Planet Dog Foundation – was so helpful to me while collecting research for WCIBY, I thought it would be fun to organize a pre-order contest to benefit PDF.

To enter, pre-order your copy of WHY CAN’T I BE YOU and e-mail your e-receipt or receipt photo to me at info at allielarkinwrites dot com. Please include the words Preorder Extravaganza in the subject line.

For every pre-order receipt I receive, I’ll donate one dollar to Planet Dog Foundation.  On February 25, I’ll draw an entry from the receipts and one lucky reader will win a tote bag filled with the books pictured above from Plume, my publisher!

Planet Dog Foundation works to provide funding to support the training and placement of working dogs, including service, therapy, police, and search and rescue dogs. You can learn more about Planet Dog Foundation on their website.

Good luck and happy reading!
