Look what arrived by UPS International Express post yesterday!! It's REAL!! Eeeeeee!!!
This is so awesome and exciting! The Rich Tennant cartoons (written especially for my book) are perfect, too! I'm going to see if I can buy a signed print of one or two (he doesn't sell originals).
Next step is to go through this review copy with a fine-tooth comb, and send any factual / typo errors in within a month, to be corrected in the first reprint. I've already spotted a few minor mistakes, damn, which slipped through the editing process, but I guess that was inevitable!
I wanna do this again - it's addictive!
ETA : It is out in bookshops in the States & Canada now, as well as online shops (Amazon.com etc etc). I'm not sure, but I think it might be available in Australian & UK bookshops too, in the near future.
