Having a Good Day :)

Why, you ask? Well, despite the fact that my heater is once again not functioning (the pipes are probably frozen again so hopefully by this afternoon they'll thaw enough for it to kick on) and the fact that my kids are home due to flooded roads all over town (they were back to school for a whopping 1 day after a very long Thanksgiving vacation) I am STILL having a good day because....

MY BOOK IS BEING PRINTED AS WE SPEAK!!! Or...as I type LOL AND I also got to look over my full cover (front, back, and spine) for final approval yesterday. Just TOO cool :)

Ooooo, AND there are two incredible blurbs on the back cover of my book - one by the lovely and wonderful Suzanne Palmieri, and the other by my very dear friend/crit partner/agent sista Christine Fonseca. How cool is that!!!?

So, despite the minor set backs of the day, still:


How is everyone else doing on this fine Thursday?

Those are some awesome blurb gals! Congrats on the book and hooray for the heater!

Stephanie McGee said...

Woohoo!

Hope the pipes thaw out and that your heat kicks on. Sorry about the flooding.

That is an awesome moment when you see the book covers. I had that moment a couple of months ago and now have the moment when the book is in my hands! You'll have that moment soon! Congrats!

That is so cool about your book!

I'm okay. It's my final day of classes so I am pretty stoked! Then it's on to two weeks of exams which is going to be rough but is WAY better than actual classes and it means its almost over!

Oh, how exciting! It is a good day for you indeed.

Woot! That is so exciting, Michelle! I remember getting Paranormalcy and Hex Hall and being so excited because I "knew" those authors on the blogosphere. It will be even more amazing to hold your book in my hands...

(Although I'm even more looking forward to seeing the one I'm reading hit the shelves someday. Don't tell your non-fic book, because I still love it. I'm just a fiction girl at heart.)

Congratulations! Are you celebrating with chocolate and doing the happy dance around the room?

Lindsay (a.k.a Isabella) said...

Yay for your book. I'm so excited for you. I better get my pre-order skates on.

My day has been trapped by 3 feet of snow. LOL.

Super mega congrats, Michelle!!! Is it okay to say I'm jealous? 'Cause I totally am! ;)

That's awesome, Michelle! Congrats! Had a minor (okay, actually major) setback this morning... one of the kids messed with the comp and I can NOT get a toolbar to come up so I can get on the internet. Which means, the research I wanted to do (and picture print-outs, which I can't do from Henry the laptop) for shiny WiP is not happening. Arggg.

But... your news made me smile, so that's a plus=)

I hope your heater starts working again and the pipes thaw!
