I can has Books!

Saturday, I looked at the tracking numbers, saw that the books were out for delivery in Milwaukee, and so I sat with the TV silent, waiting for a knock on the door. Silence is essential, since my door is old, solid wood--three inches thick most places, and two inches even where it's carved inward to make it pretty. And no matter how big the house, 3" of wood is not a good drum-head.

I can't say I was patient--I went out to check the mail about a dozen times during the day.

Eventually, at 10 to 5, I found instead of an empty mailbox a little off-yellow slip of paper. I'd missed them.

And, of course, there's nothing you can do about that on a Sunday, and the post office closes the same time I get off work, so I sacrificed my lunch hour to go get the books. 

Here is one copy, being guarded by my cat.

It's clear that the camera focused on the cat's face, not the book, but that's OK, you can see the cover over at www.tornworld.net if you want to see it clearly.  You can't see my cat over there.

Duckon, here we come!

(That's me and the books, not me and the cat.  She doesn't take to crowds, even here at the house.)

Next project--get packed, and wait for a reply to my e-mail to Duckon staff, wherein I ask why I was scheduled for two events at the same time on Sunday...

I hate it when I am waiting for a delivery and go out and see the "we missed you" card, even if you've been there waiting. :S

Good luck at Duckon

Yeah. But especially for this!

Thank you for the good wishes.

Me too! The interior pages look even better on paper than they do on PDF. (The color cover gains a bit from the luminosity of being on a computer screen, making up for the lower picture quality.)

Your description of waiting for the books reminded me of a scene from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World. ^_^

I'm glad you got your books. :) I hope Duckon goes well and you have fun!

I'm glad too. I keep thinking of that icon people have of Snoopy dancing, and wishing I had something with that feel.

I intend to have fun, and I hope to sell some books. Thanks for the good wishes.
