The Glass Man is Here!!!

My daughter and I waited most impatiently all day yesterday for a couple of boxes to arrive by courier.

We paced.  We read with jiggling knees.  We played outside in the pouring rain.

Still, the time crawled by like an eternity.

Finally, the shiny white truck pulled into the driveway at shortly after two.  My daughter made it over to him first.  “Did you bring Momma’s books?”

Yep.  He did.  Fifty of them.  All beautiful and perfect.

Squee!  There’s a book with only my name on it.  How did this happen?

Wanna see?

My girl grabbed the first book out of the book and wouldn’t let go of it.

Here’s the little beauty close up.

And the back:

One more awesome tidbit to share, this amazing poster designed by the talented folks at J. Taylor Publishing.  I have an 18 x 24 of this bad boy ready to go for my book signing in October:

Amazing, right?  This is definitely one of those moments in my life I won’t forget.

Why don’t you tell me one of yours?

    • Haha, then she was like, read it to me, Momma! Um … no, I don’t think this is a book for little girls. I couldn’t take her pout, so I read a sweet moment between Donovan and Lila from the ending and she loved it.

  4. Major siked for you. I may or may not get to this point sometime in the future, but seeing you all go through that first publication has been a really great ride for those of us that have been allowed to watch the progression. Congrats, Jo!
