Let's Celebrate UPS

I've waited ever so patiently on the arrival of the very first copies of Friday Lunch via UPS. (Sure I did.) Regardless of how many times I checked the front porch because I swore I heard that brown uniformed man out there, that space remained desolate except for Tabby... who adopted us. (That's another story.)

Today.... today was a different sort of day. What once lay barren was filled with bounty. The UPS man was unknowingly stealthy. (My doorbell doesn't work. I usually hear him drive up, but perhaps he thinks ringing the doorbell is what causes me to appear). Can't you just imagine the boxes and boxes of books?Actually, only a fraction of my order arrived, but hey, I'm not complaining.
Just after I took the first picture my camera died. I had to WAIT until the battery recharged to open the box and take the next three.
I've got the first copy I took from the box sitting on my desk. 
The preordered copies are being signed, sent out and delivered.
I look forward to having all of you meet the four friends of Friday Lunch.

So THIS is what it feels like... you know, the whole fishbowl thing. The first time someone bought Friday Lunch as an eBook and read it, was like having her walk through the creative chambers in my mind. This box of books beside me is wildly unnerving and terribly exciting. I'm ready to sell a million copies, so spread the word!


  1. How positively exciting! You'll have to sign those in stages to save your hand :)


  2. How exciting! I'm very happy for you!Congrats!!!

  3. Congratulations! I can't imagine just yet what it would feel like to get a box of books written by me in the mail. lol
