If you heard a loud screech just now, it was me. The postman rang (once) to deliver a box of books .

That screech? Was me squeeing!  Yup, my print copies of Personal Protection arrived. Yes, I picked one up and petted it, stroked it and hugged it. (I think Spike thought I was insane.)

The back is beautiful too with a gradient shade and a little vine at the top…

I can’t stop smiling as I look at the shelf above my computer …

Notice a very special spine amongst the others there?
(The golden wooden spoon is a prize I got for plotting, of all things, at our last writers’ getaway weekend in Collingwood. It’s for ‘stirring the plot’ although officially on the bottom it says “Master Plot Mixer.”)

    How awesome it must be to hold a book in your hands – and one that is gorgeous as well! I hope to have the same experience one day!

    Stirring the plot! I got a star, cause I guess I was the word count supah star that weekend. LOL!

    I remember when you were writing Personal Protection. 🙂

    I can't wait to get mine. I pre-ordered, but I haven't rcvd a notice yet. Usually they email when a book ships. *pout* I can't remember when is the actually release date?

    Thanks everyone. I still am giggling over it.

    Becky Sue — the official release date is March 1st, though I believe Amazon has it listed as releasing March 2nd. (I ordered one from Amazon.ca too, and haven't received it. Hey, anything to put my little book on the map!)
