Thanks Shady!
I posted the book in the AW library, so the title and ISBN and all that information is there. You can order it through your local bookstore or directly from the publisher through their website: www.orcabook.com

And I can order your book on-line, right?

Congratulations, Cassidy. When I saw that it's coming out from Orca Books, I thought WOW... she's got a great publisher. Best wishes for a spectacular launch.

Thanks everyone! I appreciate all the support, you guys are great. And Susan, yes-- Orca is terrific. They have been fabulous to work with and I consider myself very lucky to have hooked up with them.

I know a lot of Orca Books are at my local library, so I'll check for yours Monday! Congratulations!

Very cool! When/where's the launch?

I envy you very much. Orca's been my long-term goal for a while, but I've only subbed to them once. My books are too strange/bad/foreign/dumb/incredibly un-orcaey.

But I know they're a great pub. Is it coming out hardback?

EDIT: Who is your editor?

Ooh, congratulations! Your book sounds awesome and ...

Wait a second.

*re-reads bio on website*

Ooh! Where and when is the book launch? I live in Victoria, too.

Cassidy

Thanks all you lovely supportive people!

Hey britlitfantw-- you live in Victoria too? Cool. Check out the AW Roundtable and look under Regional Gatherings (I think it's called that). I just posted to see if any of the Victoria folks were into meeting for coffee sometime. If you would be interested, I think that would make five of us... Might be fun!

The launch will be mid-October and I'll pm you an invitation once the details are confirmed...

If I over looked this I'm sorry but... when/will it be available in the US? Canada's a little far to go for a book and I'm out of vacation time. :-(

Hi Dreamer!
Thanks for your interest! It is available in the US now. Orca distributes in both Canada and the US, so you can order it from your local bookstore. Or you can order directly from the publisher through their website (www.orcabook.com), or on-line through Amazon, Chapters etc.

I love to read... why not read something a fellow Absolute Writer has published? :-) Plus, maybe one day my baby (The Adventures of Davy Wishbone) will be published and you'll take a gander at it. It only seems right.

Cassidy,

Major congratulations! Your book looks fabulous and your publisher seems terrific. I love the book blurb.

Woo hoo for you!

Best,
Jimmer

Thanks so much Jimmer! They've been a wonderful publisher to work with and I've been so happy with what they've done with my book. I learned so much from working with my editor there. (I guess I've talked a lot at home about how much work she's put into the book because when my 3 yr old son saw my photo in it, he commented: "That's funny. Sarah (editor) made the book but your picture is in it!")

I have several more under contract with them (spring and fall 2008) and couldn't be happier about it.

And Dreamer... you bet! I'm looking forward to finding out more about Davy Wishbone (great name, btw) when your book gets published. Keep me posted!
