Guess what came in the mail? A big box filled with...

... a printed version of the cover, and advanced readers copies (ARCs). These are going to start being distributed at the big summer book conventions to reviewers, librarians, etc...

Exciting to see them in the flesh!

Book will be published January 2013. 

(Oh! Gotta tell you this: On the spine of the ARC is printed "1/13." It means the book is being published January, 2013, but it made me smile because January 13th is my birthday and yeah, the book IS like a big present. Frankly, I couldn't ask for a better one!)
