In My Hands

I'm holding it right now.

An advance copy of my book, Precarious.

It looks great and feels, well, substantial.

I like feeling the weight of it, the glossy cover. I like flipping through the pages, all 242 of them. I even like the slightly musty smell.

And I love the design. Thank you, Joanne.

Electronic books are cool, but give me ink on paper. Nothing could make a writer's first book more ... real.

Try smelling a book on a Kindle ....

Can't wait to get my hands on a copy of PRECARIOUS myself ...

Congrats.

Enjoy.

I can just imagine how much fun it must be to be holding your book!

I am looking forward to ordering Precarious from my local book store. I should be able to do so soon, yes? Get your signing pen ready!
