Pam and I are in Silver City restaurant in Silverdale. We’re holding the first hardback copy of Sylvie and the Star-Tickler. It’s the publisher’s proof copy, and we were delighted to get it.
I don’t remember what we had to eat, but it doesn’t matter. Having that book in our hot little hands was a great feeling!
The book looks perfect, but we’ll look at every line. It arrived just in time for Pam to take to California tomorrow. She’s going to show it to several bookstore owners—I hope we get some pre-orders.
