Release Day!

Hey, that's my book up there! This one was taken by the incredibly talented author, Diana Rowland, whom I now love and adore.

This morning, I went to the Barnes & Noble in Cary, NC, met the awesome folks there, and signed stock. Was a little nervous, but not nearly as stressed as I'd been earlier this week. The book is out there, and now I feel like I can breathe and enjoy it. Everyone was so nice and receptive. We talked about the book, signings, and the genre.

And the very wonderful and lovely Sonja Foust took this pic and sent it this morning. It tickles me to no end! And I now love and adore her too. :D


I ate a McDonald's to celebrate. :D Tonight, however, I shall dine on ribeye...

And Happy Release Day to Kelly Meding. Our fantastic giveaway has now come to an end. And the winner of the $100 Amazon gift card is . . .

I'm going to crack the Balvenie to celebrate (well with one drink only) your triumph! Which I must say that your good juju rubbed off on me, enough that today I had a prospective agent ask for the complete manuscript of my YA. Doesn't mean he'll wind up representing me, but it's a milestone! Enjoy your evening and congrats! :D
