A Real Book!

Two months from today Nightshade hits bookstores! I can't think of a more appropriate day for the Fed Ex guy to deliver this:
Yes!!! It's the Nightshade hardcover! My book EXISTS (it is living in warehouses until October).
There was much jumping and shrieking and happy dancing. It is so beautiful. It has rough cut edges that make it look like an aged, secret, mysterious book.
Here it is naked (gasp!)
Look at the purple!
I'm so happy :)

  28. Aloha Andrea!=)

    I just (now) finished Nightshade via Book It Forward Tours.
    I am BUYING THIS ONE FOR MY SHELF.
    Not just my favorite debut novel of the year or among my favorite YA books of the year- but all time book in general. Not even two days it took me to read this- I could have finished sooner but works and kids share my attention.

    I can not wait to buy my own copy. The edges look gorgeous. I will not want to loan my copy to anyone.
