Yep, four (and a half) boxes of books arrived late morning here in ABQ, NM… the public editions of A Kindred Spirit! The FDO mark on the back and copyright page is gone, replaced by a little Z (for ZiaLink) and LCCN (Library of Congress Control #) yay! I checked all the new art, like my updated photo (a tad blurry) from desaturating a color pic (that one -> to the right.) Plus, it has all the Errata updates (the mile long list, remember that?) I did check the print date, and as I had hoped, this batch was printed on Sept 16, my dearly departed dad’s birthday. How cool is that? I’ll take a closer look after I blog, tweet and scream out the front door 😉 It’s the Equinox (today) and yes, I’m PUBLISHED!
I still won’t believe it until I see the dang thing on Amazon. That’s the times we live in. (pause… I check one more time and guess what — yes, it’s also LIVE on Amazon! My novel is for sale on Amazon.com Well, what a trip! I must say my heart pounded when I saw it there and I couldn’t wait to call Mo (long-time friend and part-time editor 😉 amazing, really! A feeling I will long remember.
Well, there you have it. Anyone in ABQ who wants a copy should come to Hastings Friday night. 5:30 – 7:30 pm. (the Coors store, near Montano bridge.) See ya there, or be square. Denny will be there too, Stinky Feet and all 😉
