Wow, I really can't believe it, but I'm holding a hot little copy of TDLF in my hands. It's almost surreal, because this has been such a looooooong process. After all, I started writing this book almost exactly two years ago to date and sold it 16 months ago...and now to see it in its entirety is just...weird! :) I wish that I could be more eloquent but it's such a strange mix of emotions. Have any other writers felt this way? Part of me has already moved on to book #2, part of me is peeing in my pants with excitement, and part of me is so overwhelmed with emotion when I see the dedication to my late friend that it's hard not to cry. I'm literally almost shaking.
Anyhoo, I also wanted to take a second to horn-toot. If you're at a magazine stand in the next few weeks, whip out your wallet and pick up the following:
Cosmopolitan: TDLF is picked as one of their top 5 spring book club picks and called "too good to pass up." (pg. 318)
Redbook: As mentioned before, TDLF is their May book club selection, so there's a (truncated) excerpt on pg. 98, and I believe that the first chapter will be posted online at some point.
Marie Claire: TDLF gets a fab review and is called, "Smart and well-written." (pg. 127)
I couldn't ask for much more than that! (Other than that you order this baby asap!)
Happy weekend everyone!
