Countdown to Publication-Week 3: The Book Arrived in the Mail TODAY!

On Monday, my publicist e-mailed me to let me know that she was holding a copy of my book in her hands! She said, "It's beautiful" and let me know that she'd be mailing off a copy that day. Well, as you know from the previous post, patience isn't my strong point. So what did I do? I checked the mailbox....everyday. It didn't arrive until Friday. Here's a little video of that experience:

Unlike a baby, a book comes in the mail or from a bookstore (although those might have been stories children were told about how they came into to this world as well...like the stork story). Mine came in the mail way ahead of the April 3rd pub. date! Which means that if you ordered a copy of my book online, you might be getting your book(s) sooner rather than later! Hooray!

To write a book is one thing, but to hold the finished product in your hands is sort of indescribable and a bit surreal. It certainly made my day! Thanks to all of you who have purchased a copy and I hope you get yours soon!

  1. How exciting! Thanks for sharing the moment in video! Since I live in France, my pre-ordered book will have to travel an extra week to get here. But I know it will be worth the wait.

  7. Super exciting Katherine. It's been really fun to see this journey you've taken and all the excitement it's brought. I can't wait for my copy to arrive! It's so awsome being able to read a book and say "I've met this person! They are so cool!" haha :P
