The Trade Paperback Of The Girl He Used To Know Is Available Today!

  • January 7, 2020

 

Hello, everyone!

I’m so excited because today is the release day for the trade paperback edition of The Girl He Used to Know. And there is something super special about it. Do you see the little red box at the upper right-hand corner of the picture above? That’s right! I am thrilled to announce that Target has selected The Girl He Used to Know as its January Book Club Pick! ! They choose one book per month and I can’t tell you how happy I was when I learned it would be mine.

And not only did Target select the book, but there are 7,800 signed limited edition copies on their shelves! It took me a month and 10 Sharpies to get them all signed, but it was such an honor that I’d have signed twice as many if they’d asked me to. I love Target and I’ve always loved seeing my books on the shelves there. But this book is extra special and I’d love it if you picked one up either in the store or at Target online.

I hope you’ll pick up a paperback copy of The Girl He Used to KnowOprah Magazine named it one of the best romance novels of 2019 and the Philadelphia Inquirer says “the ending had me riveted.” The trade paperback is available in stores as well as online at the following retailers (simply click on the highlighted link):

Amazon

Barnes & Noble

Books-A-Million

Indiebound

I’ll be going live on my Facebook author page at 7:00 p.m. CST tonight. I’ll be doing a Q&A, so have those questions ready. I’ll be giving away some signed paperbacks and tote bags, too, so I hope to see you there!

xoxo,

Tracey

The Girl He Used To Know Dream Cast

  • January 2, 2020

Hello, everyone!

I’ve been asked by quite a few readers who I’d want to play Annika and Jonathan if The Girl He Used to Know ever made it to the big screen. I’ll admit that I find this difficult because when I’m writing the book, the characters look sort of like faceless blobs in my head. Slowly, they come into focus but explaining what they look like can be challenging (with the exception of Annika who I compared in the book to Carolyn Bessette-Kennedy).

For one, the actors I choose need to match up fairly well with the ages of the characters. This was the hardest thing about coming up with the actors who could play T.J. and Anna in On the Island. As each year went by, actors I’d chosen in the past started aging out of the roles. Luckily for me, Annika and Jonathan are a little easier. Here are the actors I’d love to see in the roles if Hollywood ever comes knocking (these choices first appeared on a Q&A I did for Chick Lit Central):

For Annika, Hillary Duff.

 

 

 

 

 

You guys, I love Hillary in Younger (which is a fantastic show if you’re not already familiar with it and looking for something addictive to binge-watch). Her character, Kelsey Peters, has never met an obstacle she couldn’t overcome, but I think it would be amazing watching Hillary portray Annika’s vulnerabilities and fears (as well as her giant heart).

For Jonathan, Robbie Amell.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The first movie I ever saw Robbie in was The Duff. He was awesome, he’s adorable, and he seems like he would embody all the best qualities of Jonathan: handsome, respectful, and kind.

For Janice, Emmy Rossum.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

For some reason, I could totally see Emmy Rossum giving Annika advice, helping her to get ready for her first date with Jonathan, and being there for her when it seemed that all hope was lost.

If you had other actors in mind, feel free to tag me on Instagram @traceygarvisgraves and I’ll share your choices! I’d love to see them.

Happy Holidays, everyone!

I don’t know about you, but I’m knee-deep in holiday shopping, decorating, baking (and eating). I absolutely love this time of year and I’m in my element from Thanksgiving until New Year’s Day.

First of all, I want to thank everyone who voted for The Girl He Used to Know in the Goodreads Choice Awards. It was my first nomination and it was truly an honor. I didn’t win, but I was absolutely thrilled to have been considered (and huge congratulations to winner Casey McQuiston’s Red, White & Royal Blue!).

I am so grateful for the amount of love that’s been shown for the book since its publication last April. I don’t think a day goes by that I don’t receive a message on social media about how the book has touched someone. That is the highest compliment you can give to an author and I want you to know how much it means to me.

This year, 2020 will start off with a bang because not only do I get to celebrate a new decade but also the publication of the trade paperback edition of The Girl He Used to Know (available January 7th). I can’t wait to hold it in my hands.

The trade paperback is available for pre-order now at the links below:

Amazon 

Barnes & Noble 

Books-A-Million 

Indiebound 

More exciting trade paperback launch news to come! But in the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful holiday season full of blessings, joy, and good cheer.

xoxo,

Tracey

And now that the book has made it into the finals in the romance category, I can hardly contain myself. Who would have thought? Clearly, not me. But now I am over-the-moon about the amount of love and support my readers have shown for this book. Thank you from the bottom of my heart! It truly means the world to me.
