Here's how it all went down... I was racing around Greenville with my mom all day Wednesday picking up some last minute things for the The Dead-Tossed Waves tour (like a suitcase, socks, shoes) and I finally got in the car to drive home around 4:00pm. Since I'd been out of town for a long weekend with JP, I called my friend Diana to chat and catch up during the drive. About five minutes into the call I saw a 212 number flash on my screen and said something like "Oh, that's New York calling - I should get this" (I still always get such a thrill when I see the 212 number - lol). I figured it might be my publicist calling to chat about release details or whatnot.
Me: NO! What?! NO!!! Seriously? OMG!
I still feel like I'm running around like a chicken with my head cut off trying to get things in order before I leave for the tour on Sunday (squee!!!). I have to do fun things like get taxes in order, iron clothes and pack! But I'm just so excited and smiling and crazy happy! More squeees!!!
Thanks all of y'all for sharing this with me!!! And thanks for buying my book!! I can't wait to meet so many of y'all in person during the tour!
(Just a note that Friday is the last day to pre-order signed copies of FHT and DTW in order to have them shipped on release day! You can keep ordering after that but if you want them personalized they won't ship out until the end of March when I get back into town to sign them (likewise with any SASEs I get after I leave for tour on Sunday).)
