Well, to be technical, they're there. In Maryland, with the boyfriend. He sent me the photo after he opened the box (which was unnecessary, because the box had been ripped open in shipping, with one of my author copies being liberated along the way).
Still, it feels good to know they're there.
Then, total weirdness... I drop by my publisher's excellent website (truly, one of the best out there for selling books - I mean, you can actually find what you're looking for!) and find my book on the front page.
Now that's cool.
Dorchester is also way ahead of the game when it comes to author profiles on the site. Yesterday, I linked to the author snapshot in January Magazine, done by the wondrous Linda L. Richards. I mentioned the personal inspiration behind the opening scene of the book. At Dorchester's site, you can read a bit more about that, and also read that opening scene.
Okay, enough about me. If you want to get your knickers in a twist today, you can join the fray at Gawker, dissecting the poster for the new Batman movie and why it's bringing 9/11 to mind for some.
And if you'd just like to read about a new book not written by me, let me direct you to Steve Mosby, who has his first review in for his latest, Cry For Help. I'd also like to point out that Tom Piccirilli's latest, The Cold Spot and In The Wind by Barbara Fister come out the same day as my book, so I feel confident assuring you there will be something new and excellent to read on store shelves next week, because I've already read and reviewed Tom's book, and I'm dying to get my hands on Barbara's.
