It's unprecedented for me, but I'm at a loss for words to describe how excited I am over seeing the cover for Raising Cade! It looks the same as all the other covers for this year's Don't Read in the Closet, with one very important difference: it's the first time I've ever seen my name on the front of a book!
Now, I get what people mean when they say they're beside themselves. If anything, I'm in all four corners of the room at once—jumping up and down, grinning like a horny sailor fresh off the boat (or, maybe, one who just boarded? *wink*), dancing all around, and singing out (*Louise!* ) in a voice that's far too loud...
Isn’t it beeeee-you-tee-full?????
I just can’t wipe the smile off my face!!!!!
