Proof Copy!

Today I received the proof copy of It Took a War! The scheduled delivery date was today so I was confused and disappointed when my sister came back from the mailbox without the proof copy. About ten minutes later I saw the mail truck come back, make a u-turn and stop at the mail box. I was spying out the window and giving my mom a play by play.

"The mail truck stopped at the mail box! The mail guy is eating a powerbar and....he put a package in!"

Hallelujah my book came!

 Seriously, was the mail man just trying to make this more suspenseful?! Sheesh.

It's an amazing and surreal feeling to hold my book. So crazy!!




 It Took a War will be available on December 15th....less than 2 weeks away!!

  7. Ahh! The suspense created by the mailman!!!
    By the way, your cover design is absolutely awesome! Seriously, it is one of the best I've seen recently -- you know, the kind that makes you pick it up on the shelf just because you like the cover...:)
