Boxes of books came today! What a thrill to actually hold one of these real books in my hands and flip through the pages. My good old story I have loved for so long. Now in print so other people can read it and come to know some of my favorite characters. And the books are beautiful! I love what the publisher did with the cover.
My agent emailed me over the weekend to tell me she had gotten her copies, so I suspected mine might come today. I gave a talk at my Roseburg writers’ group this morning and had to leave home before the books came. But when I got back they were waiting on the porch for me. Ah! What a sight!
Checking an old blog post, I see that boxes of my first book came early the month before the release date too. And for those of you who have pre-ordered The Shifting Winds from one of the online outlets, you may actually get your book before March 1. I don’t know, but I think people started getting them earlier last time.
Oh, what fun! This is one of those moments for a writer. Sheer pleasure. I am so looking forward to sharing. 🙂
I have my “pre-order” in…can’t wait to start reading the new book! Also we are so looking forward to finally meeting you when we come down in March. Will be at one of the functions, but not sure which one yet! Can’t wait!
Great to hear from you, Audrey. Glad you have your order in and that you hope to be at one of the functions. If you bring your book, either to the ECEC event or the museum event, I’ll be happy to sign it for you.
I can’t wait to read The Shifting Winds.
Thank you, Dianne. Very soon.
