That is *my* book on a reader's e-reader. I'm having a contest to help me launch the book ~ so readers and tweet or facebook about the book and get a chance to win the prize pack or they can review or send me pictures...the list goes on. But this is the first picture of my book, being read by someone outside my family. And it kind of blows my mind. In a good way. If you want to get in on the contest, just head over to my personal blog for the details.
I'm thrilled and a little freaked out to see my book on that e-reader - I knew this would happen but...but...but that's my book. And that's not my e-reader. Or table. Or case. But that's my book. And I hope she likes it (that isn't a hint for high-fives or I-love-its, by the way). I hope she laughs, I hope she gets a little teary. I hope for a moment it transports her, because isn't that what we all want? For the books we read to give us more than simple words on the page?
So, this week I'm working on the next book and I'm promoting my first book and I'm happy and nervous, but mostly I'm hopeful. Hopeful that this is the beginning of a long career. And I'm riding my delusional unicorn because that's just how I roll...
