So, I taught at the college today and hustled home before going to pick the kids up at school. A big box sat on my porch. Well, I figured it was the RWA books I’m supposed to judge for the RWA Rita contest.
The Magnificent Megan (Yes, I borrowed that term from Cynthia Eden, but Cynthia is right–our editor is awesome) grabbed some promotional copies of FATED for me. Then, I held my first book in my hands. Very cool. The picture on the front is altered slightly from my coverflat – the woman has a couple of bite marks on her neck. Oh yeah. 🙂
I may have gotten a little emotional when I lifted the first book out of the box. Then it was pure excitement. I held my book. 🙂 It’s been just over a year from “the call” when FATED sold. (Remember it was called “Urban Bite”). The year has been wonderful, and the book is about to be on the shelves. (2/22/11). It will be available on Kindle on 3/1/11. Thanks to everyone who’s showed such wonderful support during this year…I really appreciate it.
Also, The Gourmet Way in Hayden is having a book launching/signing party on February 22nd from 4:00 to 7:00pm. There will be wine, giveaways and some fun. The public is invited and I hope to see all of you there.
I’ll have some contests and giveaways for signed copies of FATED coming up. For now, I’m lining my copies up on my bookshelf and just admiring them. 🙂
