What it’s like to get a printed book with your name on it

My proof print copies of One Night got here sooner than expected. On Friday after a somewhat rough day at work I wasn’t in the best mood when I got home. Imagine the boost I got when I came home to this:

I knew I loved the cover of my book, but seeing it in print was exhilarating. I am thrilled with how it came out and still can’t believe it. It looks even better next to the other books on my shelf:

In the end hubby and I decided it was finally time to break open the champagne we’ve been holding onto since our wedding – it was a gift. I just hope we don’t get sick since it’s 2.5 years old.


All in all, it’s a great feeling to see my novel in print. Surreal.
