ARC the (Herald) Brown Truck Brings

You can tell by that silly post title that my head's in a bit of a spin. Today I bring you one of my life's more surreal moments....


 


   

 

These are ARCs, or Advance Reading Copies. They aren't the finished book, but they are very close. Close enough to make me hold one in trembling hands. Please welcome my baby with me!

  5. Congratulations, Lori! If it were me, I might spend the rest of the day thumbing through them, reading them, arranging them, taking more and more pictures. :) Enjoy.

  7. Thanks everyone!

    Sally, it's so very tempting. Distractions are many and big today. Focus is proving elusive. But there's a book needing plotted and research needing done, so I'm giving it a go. With frequent breaks for tea.

  10. Thanks Becky and Brenda! I should have words beyond "surreal" to describe what it was like to open a book and see my own story inside. It's such a weird blend of exhilarating and sobering that I can't quite define it.
