ARCS!



What an exciting day! My ARCS arrived!

In case you don't know what an ARC is, it stands for Advance Review Copy (or Advance Reading Copy, depending on who you ask). Basically, it's the uncorrected proofs bound in paperback, and is typically done months in advance of the book's publication date, so it can be sent out for reviews.

Isn't it purdy? I'm giddy with delight!

I'm so excited you'd think it was my book!

It's gorgeous! Did you shoot Mike an email with a photo at work today?

P.S. And hi, Caryn Rose. Apparently we buy our jewelry from the same person. I bought my daughter a choker made of bass strings from this girl in Minnesota who said she made you a bracelet and asked me if I knew you. Small world, huh.

P.P.S. My word verification is eltaco. Mmmm.....
