At last, in my hot little hand!

The hard copies of The Rare Event arrived! This is my first novel that’s gone into print, but not the last, as I am diligently working on Mountain novels, but your first is always special. I opened the box and cried.

If I’d looked at the return address first, I’d have combed my hair.

But I have real 350 page trade paperbacks representing two years of work: this was a long time coming, with some missteps along the way.

I had to take them all out and pet them. Yes, I cuddled them and called them “George.”

I just know I’m going to be that author who sits by the computer on the eve of the official launch, hitting ‘refresh’ over and over on the Dreamspinner “new releases” page. Now that you know where I’ll be at five minutes to midnight tomorrow night, won’t you join me?

  1. I remember when The Gathering Dead came in mail then nothing else until I came to wiping tears out my eyes. CONGRATULATIONS, Pam!!

  3. Congratulations! Isn’t it a great feeling, holding your own book and seeing your name on the cover at last? *is still over the (full) moon about Camwolf* 😀

    • It really is something else entirely. Even after 3 novels and a bunch of short stories, I can’t help feeling like this is the first time. *pets you for Camwolf*
