Little brown box of goodness

Been a few hectic days here what with school starting and a dozen other issues, but this little box o' goodies showed up on my doorstep yesterday...

...and filled me with such immense happiness that I might have shed a few tears:


Now I just need to figure out how to distribute them. ;-) I shall be thinking of contests and give-aways and sending some out for reviews... EDITED TO ADD: I am remiss in explaining; these early, incredibly gorgeous books are ARCs, Advanced Reader's Copies, which means they are uncorrected proofs and not for sale, and basically for the purpose listed above -- for early reviewers, give-aways, contests and such.

Ooh! Ooh! I want!
Okay, now that that's out... Congrats! That must be an awesome feeling! A box like that would certainly make the day TONS better. :)

You must be dancing on the ceiling! I can't imagine how good that must feel. Congrats! Oh, and I'd love to review it :)

Kelly Gay said...

Thanks, Ashley! I wish I had enough to give away to everyone! But I'll be doing a few contests, so make sure to check back. Er, as soon as I figure out what kind of contests and such to do...

Jacqueline -- I actually had you on my list to see if you'd like to review the book. :-) I'll send you an email about it after conference...

Mike said...

Gotta be a great feeling, Kelly. Congratulations.

I know how hard you have worked for this over the years and can only imagine how thrilled you must have felt seeing your name on the cover.

Gives me Bumps-of-the-Goose just thinking about it ;-)

Keep Writing!

Wow, I can only daydream how that would feel, at the moment, anyhow. I might actually faint, something I usually reserve for ovens catching on fire...

Kelly Gay said...

Thanks, Mike! I can't wait for you to read this book -- I'm determined to make you an urban fantasy fan, lol. :-)

A. Grey -- ROFL. Yeah, the fainting... I think if I hadn't known they were coming, I might have passed out!

Yolanda Sfetsos said...

Congrats Kelly! They look fantastic. :)

LeeAnn Flowers said...

I gotta remember to keep checking for contests!!! I want one!!! Otherwise, I have to wait all the way to November to get one.

On the other hand, it would be a cool self b-day present.

Ooh, and I've got another friend that I can give a copy to for his b-day. :D

Kelly Gay said...

Thanks, Yolanda! :D

LeeAnn -- your birthday is Nov. 24th?

Rebecca said...

What's the contest??? What's the contest? How about best photo of a lizard taken in Arizona in 2009? Or best song sung to you off-key from 2500 miles away accompanied by mandolin while the singer stands on her left foot? Or, ummm, coolest drawing of a giraffe from Reid Park Zoo? Those contests would be great! (There are no ulterior motives or underlaying bias in my contest suggestions.) Anyways, congrats! Wooohoooo! And I'm checkin' back for contests! ;)

A. Grey said...

Hurry, hurry with a contest! I don't own a SINGLE ARC and I'd love to get my hands on yours for my first one!

pseudosu said...

Cool Kelly! Congrats! Amazing cover.

Kelly Gay said...

LOL, Beck -- you crack me up!

A. Grey -- I will try to hurry. ;-) The first contest will mostly likely be after my conference, so end of July most likely.

Thanks, Sue!!! :D

LeeAnn Flowers said...

Nope, November 23rd. And my friend's is November 29th. But what a nice present.

The only thing that would be better is if I could get published. :D

Kelly Gay said...

I will remember to say Happy birthday then! Which will be easy seeing as my son is Nov. 20th.

Chris said...

Wow Kelly!! You've come a long way since the good ol KD days :) When Kami told me you were published, my mouth hit the floor..great news though. Can't wait for the book to come out and I think the cover looks awesome.

Kelly Gay said...

OMG. Chris! Hi! :D Wow. Total blast from the past. Thanks for stopping by my blog, what a great surprise! I hope you're hanging in there, and doing well. :-)

suzie said...

Congrats :) The covers look beautiful!

Kelly Gay said...

Thanks, Suzie! I'm so in love with the gold lettering ~ so pretty and shiny... :D

Lilibeth Ramos said...

Congrats on the ARCs! I read one review already and so far it's sounds like an awesome read, and was wondering if I could review it as well, definitely don't want to miss out on this one!

Rebecca said...

So where is this contest??? I'm not so patiently awaiting it's details. ;)

Kelly Gay said...

Hi Lilibeth! Thanks! I went and took a look -- your blog is awesome. ;-)

Beck -- be patient, Young One. :D I won't get to a contest until after I get back from my conference this week.

Rebecca said...

But, I am a Padawan, not a Youngling! Alright, alright, I'll practice patience and then conjure the Force to win that contest next week or so. ;)

Have fun at your conference!!!!!
