Guess what came in the mail?

My final version, ready for the bookstore books!!

It's so strange - the clock is ticking down, I've been super busy with online promotional interviews and setting up signings but I can honestly say that yesterday morning was the first time everything felt real. I ripped open the box and pulled out a book and realized, in two weeks this is going to be on shelves, in people's hands. And I got a little emotional. I mean this whole thing started as a simple goal "I want to publish a novel" and has really taken my life in a whole new, exciting direction.

I keep holding the book and staring at its pretty cover. But mostly, I'm afraid to open it and read anything for fear of finding a typo :)
