I love the smell of printers' ink in the morning. It smells like, victory

We're so close. Seriously close. I know, September 10th is still several months away. (Actually 172 days, 8 hours, and 43 minutes, but who's counting?)

For authors this is a time of furious activity: writing author's notes, acknowledgments, proofing galley pages (see above on the right) and watching with nervous anticipation as advance reader copies (see above left) go out to...advance readers. Who are these mysterious people? Well, they tend to be key book buyers, industry bigwigs, and also a few relatives who it's always nice to remind that, yes, I am still gainfully employed.

Also these early manuscripts go out to foreign editors, so as I merrily type this WILLOW has already found a home in Italy, Norway, Brazil, and the UK.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, no, that's not the actual book cover. That cake is still baking. But soon, so very soon, we'll serve it up.

The photo of the cover looks intriguing, but since it isn't the REAL THANG, I suppose I can wait like the patient man I am! Okay. I can't wait.
