This week I got a surprise package in the mail: Advanced Reading Copies! Only a couple, so no, I don't have any to give away, and I've told that to my friends -- who have been instructed to BUY the book if they choose to remain friends!
(I do plan to do a GoodReads giveaway this summer.)
It's a good excuse to post the cover yet again, because now I've been able to see it LIVE, and I love it just as much -- even more?
I got the first pass pages via email. These I'll check for typos (none so far) and also teeny tweaks I want to make. My friends Mindy and Rebecca are also proofing for me (in return for coffee & pastry, and my undying gratitude).
I could revise forever, but then I'd never get to write another book! And I definitely want to have this thrill again -- of seeing/having/touching the book, the real actual book, for the first time.
