The Books are Here!

Look what I got yesterday!!!

As you can see, Magic the Cat was pretty excited too. Of course, she does think her picture is on the cover...

Apparently the books arrived in the Llewellyn warehouse a little ahead of schedule, because I noticed that Amazon has changed the release date from April 8th to APRIL 1st!!!! Yes, that means that you folks who preordered will be getting your books sometime next week!

And the arrival of the books at my house means that those of you who used the "Buy Now" button on the blog (or on my website) to order a signed book from me will be getting those soon too. I plan to sign them and pack them up this weekend, and take them to the post office on Monday. (They may still take a little longer, since I will probably be sending them media mail, which is cheaper, but also slower.) If you wanted a signed book but haven't ordered one from me yet, you can use the button at the top left of the blog, which will take you to Paypal. (Remember that I am only going to send out signed books to the first 100 people who ask, since it is a lot of work, and I should REALLY be working on the next book! So after those 100 are gone, I'll be taking the button down.)

I can't tell you how happy I was to hold this book in my hands at last--it is just the coolest little thing, if I do say myself. And I can't get over how excited everyone else is about it. That makes it all way more fun for me, too.

There will be one more giveaway to celebrate the actual book release week, probably on Monday...along with a really fun announcement and a special surprise for you all that I think is going to knock your socks off. In the meanwhile, I hope you are all having a great weekend. This is me, off to work on revisions...

Oh, and don't forget to enter the Goodreads Contest, which runs until the 8th!

  1. How very thrilling! And yes, Magic does seem very pleased with the new book and she is very thoughtfully depositing her scent and magic upon them. Thanks, Magic!

  2. Magic seems amazingly pleased with books that aren't being read by a neglectful human, whose lap could be put to better use. Therefore they must be special.

  3. Ooh, that is exciting! Signing 100 books is a rather decadent way to enjoy publication ;)

    1. I'd call it nuts, actually :-) But really, it may only be 20 or 30, depending on how many people decide to take me up on the offer.

  4. Yay, exciting. And I'm glad my cats aren't the only ones who love to help out when book packages arrive.

  5. I love how they are kitty approved :D

  6. They look awesome, especially with the cat as an accessory ;)
