I now have in my hands the author copies of my first book, The Last Great Getaway of the Water Balloon Boys. I can’t tell you what a great feeling this is. What a beautiful hardback book. As a former owner of a used bookstore, and one who’s sold a number of antiquarian books, I gotta tell you it’s a real pleasure to open this one up and see the words “First Edition” there on the copyright page. I would have been fine with my first book being a paperback original, but it gives me an extra thrill for it to be a hardcover.
And if you’ve pre-ordered it, you too can hold it your hands . . . in about five days.
