A copy of What's Written on the Body arrived this afternoon, and it is just GORGEOUS! I love it I love it I love it. And it is so nice to finally be able to hold it in my hands. Phil Kovacevich did a terrific job with the cover (thank you). I love the blurbs that were chosen for the back cover, and my little author photo, and the image of a man's nude back, and everything. I can hardly wait to read from it! (Actually, I opened Body up and read "Tete-a-Tete" out loud in the living room to myself, and it felt wonderful). Tonight Dean and I are going out with our friends Kevin and Bob, and I am pretty sure a martini or two will be hoisted in the air in celebration. Cheers!
PS: What's Written on the Body is available to bookstores through Consortium (Copper Canyon's distributor), and it's available for pre-order at Amazon, B & N, SPD, Powell's, and all the usual places. I'll have copies for the ASU Writer's Conference. Or you can come by Copper Canyon's table at AWP, and I'd be delighted to sign a copy for you.
