Can You Hear Me????

So, guess what came in the mail today?

Guarding the book

Can you hear me squeeing from here?  (Open the window.  I’ll bet you can.)  Yep, that’s right — a single copy of my finished book. With an acknowledgement page.  And a photo.  Even a price!  After all this time, it just doesn’t seem possible that it will officially be out in the world in just 25 days.  I’m a little scared to let go of its hand and turn it loose — it’s a big place out there.  What if it gets lost?

Luckily, Evenfall will be in good company.  I’ve been very fortunate to stumble across several writing communities, and friends from these groups also have books coming out in February.   Some are debut authors like me, some have books coming out in new formats, and a few are old hands at this publishing thing.  Over the next three weeks, I’d like to introduce you to them.  They’re good people and good books, all. And to help make the introductions, I’ll be giving away some of those books as well.  I hope you’ll come by to meet them.

Now, pardon me.  I must return to my squeeing.
