Cool Stuff in the Mail!!!

Yesterday, a large goldenrod envelope was delivered and it contained...




posters! That's right, my publisher had posters made of the book cover for the ALA conference in Chicago as well as a few other venues as the book launches. It has the cover on the front and a map of time zones on the back. I've already put one up in the library at T's elementary school.

And today...J hands me another, smaller goldenrod envelope that contained...




my book! My real-life, actually exists, out in the world (well, a couple of copies anyway) very first picture book. It so surreal to actually hold it and thumb through it. I'm so excited! (Can you tell by the overuse of exclamation points?!?) It won't be out in quantity until July 20th, but come over and I'll show it to you.

On this date: In 1564 William Shakespeare was born. Maybe.
