Got a surprise in the mail the other day! Which really, it wasn’t a surprise because I knew it was coming, but it still felt like a surprise. I wrote ADORKABLE several years ago, published it just this year at the end of March. Yesterday, I got to finally hold my book in my hands for the first time.
It was an incredible feeling <3.
Sigh…I felt it all. And yes, I did cry just a little.
The print cover turned out AMAZING! Thank you, thank you, thank you to Stephanie Mooney for working your magic yet again.
And now, I’ll share some pictures (because OF COURSE I had to take pictures!!!).
Prepare yourself for all the pretty.
This is what the proof looked like in the box…
…and here’s a look inside…
…and this is the book outside the box, in my hand, with the beautiful cover and spine and all the amazing attributes of a real, live, paperback book! Oh, I love it, and I loved getting to add ADORKABLE to my bookshelves.
There is just something about books that you can literally hold in your hand. No offense to reading devices (I heart mine and use it well and often), but imo a print book is just a different experience. It’s running your fingers along the cover, flipping the pages, hugging and snuggling the book to your chest…oh is that just me? Got it, lol!
Anyway, this was the highlight of my week! I hope you’re enjoying your week as well–and that you get lots of pretty books in the mail, too.
