Today it happened. I received an otherwise wholly unassuming little black book in the mail today: my advance review copy (ARC) of my upcoming ‘collectio[novella]’ Shenanigans! Of course, after opening the envelope, I felt compelled to snap a few quick iPhone photos to share with friends and a seemingly infinite number of Internet denizens! For whatever number of likely capricious and inconsequential reasons, I feel a great deal more–I dunno–authorial today than, say, for instance, yesterday, or really any day that came before that. Anyway, the pictures suck but you get the point.
1) Cracking the cover, 2) The cover itself, 3) First page of the TOC, 4) Officially official writerly–type-stuff like ISBN and Library of Congress #s
