Suddenly, there were books with my name on them.

azimuth:0.000000||elevation:0.000000||horizon:0.000000The revisions deadline for WHILE YOU WERE GONE is looming over me like a dark menace, but I had to take time out to post a very cool happening.

I got a package in the mail from my editor, the lovely Katherine Harrison at Knopf, and in the package was books. With my name on them.

My advanced reader copies of NOW THAT YOU’RE HERE had arrived!

I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen other authors post pics of their ARCs and wondered what that must be like, seeing your book for the first time. Now I know: it’s a very strange feeling. Do I laugh? Cry? Run around the room screaming? Sit and stare, wondering how this ever happened? All of the above? I imagine at some point all of this will feel very normal. But for now it’s a bit Alice-down-the-rabbit-hole. I keep checking to see if the stack of ARCs is still there, to make sure this isn’t actually some surreal dream.

Yep. They’re still there.

And so is that book two deadline. Best get back to work.
