My first real copy of goddess! Yay! on Twitpic

I got two copies in the mail this morning from my editor’s assistant. (You can click on the picture for a bigger view.) I have since accomplished very little besides gazing into the shiny gold foil and fondling the embossing. It’s real! It’s really real! There are 384 pages inside, and my words are on each and every one!

Goddess of the Hunt
got some lovely bloggage this week. Michelle Buonfiglio listed it as a Top Ten Beach Read over at’s “Unabashedly Bookish” blog, and on Barbara Vey’s “Beyond Her Book” blog at Publisher’s Weekly, Stacey gave it a fabulous writeup (scroll down to the bottom). I’m in the process of writing up all sorts of promo letters, interviews, and guest blog posts for the coming month. Prepare to get sick of me. 🙂

AND – I had awesome news yesterday in the form of an email from my editor. Rights to all three books in the trilogy have been sold to publisher IKAR, for hardcover Slovak-language editions. I’ll be in translation! I can’t believe it.

Needless to say, it’s been a great week. I hope it’s been great for you, too. Have a wonderful holiday weekend, for those who live in the USA!

    Squee City! This is so exciting to watch, and I’ll be taking notes, LOL.

    I wanted to tell you that thanks to your rec, I watched Enchanted on YouTube in 10 minute increments (so handy for an ethically-challenged cheapskate like me 😈 ). It was so much fun. I’d been wanting to see it for ages, and your post prompted me to do so. Have a happy fourth!
