    Imma drink this.





    I started writing my first book in May of 2001. (Blessedly, this is a different book. I'm not that slow)

    January 9, 2013, I get to hold my work in my hand - with a dust jacket and everything.

    A bottle and two books? That's going to be hard to drink.
    Good luck with that... these people and their weird traditions.


    Whatever.

    Congrats! You've earned it!
