Let the nail-biting commence!

Okay, so I’ve been totally M.I.A. this week, polishing up Intangible so it would be ready to go out to early reviewers by today. Which it just did. (Pardon me for a moment while I hyperventilate…) (No, really. Once I hit “send” on that last email message I felt suddenly nervous. It’s official. It’s out there. People are going to be reading it. Good god, what have I done?)

No, I’m fine. Sort of. Well, maybe not right now, nor for the next week…okay, actually I have no idea when I’m going to be fine again. It may be a while, but I’m going to try hard to pretend. Deal?

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi, and tell you that the book is out there already and will be up for sale on Tuesday. I have the most beautiful bookmarks that I’m going to start giving away and I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of the temporary tattoos I ordered of that cool fleur-de-lis that’s in the book. I *can’t* wait for those! I’ll post pictures as soon as I slap one on my arm. (Oh, you know I’m doing that as soon as I open the package. Because, you know, what’s more fun than a temporary tattoo?)

Okay. I’ve obviously got nothing intelligent to say tonight—I’m all a-flutter. So I’m going to leave you with this. It’s just so cool.

(Did you notice the hands on the clock? Watch it again and see how much time it took them to do this.) (Did you watch through all the credits when they listed all the books that were on the shelves?) (Really. I just totally love this kind of stuff.)

Someday I am going to organize my bookshelves by color because I *love* how it looks.

Hope you have a great weekend!

      Thanks, Cate! It’s wild how it just hit me. I’m crazy nervous all of a sudden. I’m breathing. Or at least trying to! :-)

    read it, LOVED it, and put a review up on amazon. I have no clue how to write reviews, so it’s kind of all over the place but I managed to refrain from mentioning my childhood obsession with the Bobbsey twins, as there’s no possible way to compare the two other than the twins factor. Told you I can’t write! intangible rocks, seriously … your sense of how to unfold the story to build credibility and suspense is awesome! you also got me past my natural wariness of vampires in about 3 paragraphs, which does not happen to me. they’ve always given me the shivers, though I’ve forced myself to read Dracula, but avoided them otherwise. I think you’re changing my mind :).
    hitting “send” is terrifying, I do get that part, but be proud of what you’ve done because it’s truly excellent!

      Bethany, I’m absolutely thrilled that you loved it! That makes me so, so happy. And I have no idea what you’re talking about in terms of your ability to write reviews . . . I thought your review was fantastic. (Much better than I could have done–I’m terrible at writing reviews.)

      Thank you so very much for reading the book early and reviewing it. And thank you for loving it. :-)
