Look what came!
(This is a video! Hit it to make it play!)
So! HMH sent me a couple of ARCs, or advance readers' copies, of my new middle grade novel Stand on the Sky. These will be sent out to reviewers, media people, bloggers, and bookstore buyers starting about now. The book itself will be published in March of 2019.
Receiving ARCs has always been my favorite part of the publishing process. Seeing my words laid out like this makes me feel as if the book is really a book, not just four years worth of scribbles and drafts and revisions. It's an amazing moment of transformation. Plus, it marks the point where I figure it's too late for my publishers to back out now.....
Enjoy this glimpse of a happy writer and her messy background kitchen.
