Jane Millionaire has arrived!!!!

I know what you really want to know is WHO won tonight's drawing, but...I GOT A COPY OF JANE MILLIONAIRE today! Just one copy, but OMG! My editor sent it to me with a darling sticky note message on it. I had to take my youngest son to the dentist so I got home from work a bit earlier than normal and when I arrived, a package from Dorchester was in the mail! So, I waited an hour and a half (I thought I'd only be waiting about 15 minutes but hubby took longer to get home than expected) & opened it with my hubby and kids in the living room with me. I can not describe the feeling to hold that book, to open the cover and see words I wrote on the pages. It's so amazing, so surreal, so unbelievable. So I handed the book to hubby (Okay, so he had to pry it from my fingers ) and he read the acknowledgement page and I could tell he was a bit disappointed but was trying to be all macho and tough and not let on that HE wasn't on that page. He didn't say a word, but I pointed out that on the opposite page was my dedication to him. :O) I'd never told him that I'd done that so it was the first time he'd seen it. Was kinda funny cause he really was sitting there thinking I'd totally left him out of the acknowledgement. Yeah right. :O) I keep pulling it out and touching the cover, opening it and staring at the pages, thinking I WROTE THIS. Would it be wrong to sleep holding it???

Okay, the lucky winner of Donna Birdsell's Falcon's Mistress is . Woo hoo, Jennifer!!! Congrats! on your win. Y'all have a great night...I'm going to go roll around in bed with Jane...uhm, that kinda sounds bad, doesn't it??? Okay, so I'm going to sleep with my eyes open so that I can be sure I'm not dreaming and this is really happening and that OMG! Jane Millionaire is really for sale and shipping from Amazon and my editor sent me a copy!! WOW.

I know exactly how you're feeling right now. When I held my first book and flipped ever so slowly through the pages, my main thought was, 'It's a real book. A real book.'
