When I got home today I had a few presents waiting for me from Warner as well. I suppose these aren't "true" galleys but are bound copies. Very fun to flip through and see my author mug on the back page. Three more months to go (Aug 30)!!

I work with a guy who lives by E-Bay, and you may have strung him along a couple of times. Bravo! Sounds like a fun book and probably more fun to be the tormentor. My hat's off to you.

BTW - nice pseudonym. It reminds me of one I heard before, Bart Futts. It has such a ring to it.

UPDATE, UPDATE!!!

My honest-to-goodness galley came last week from Hodder in the U.K.!!! (Try and black out that big 'ol strawberry there on my right knee if you can).

That's waaay better than the pdf I got as a 'galley'. I had to print it out myself, but I was thrilled nonetheless.

Strawberry on the knee provided by an ill-advised dive at shortstop during a baseball game. Wasn't worth it.

U.S. edition will be released Aug 30 and U.K. Aug 16.
