It's HERE!!!!!!!!!!

Break out the bubbly!!!

The first copies of The Treasures of Venice have arrived, and almost two weeks early! Last night I received emails from two good friends of mine, Sharen S. and Nancy L. They both pre-ordered copies of TToV from the same local Barnes & Noble store, and they were both called YESTERDAY and told their books were in.


Aunty is doing the little Snoopy-happy-dance. But I am also pouting, because I haven't yet seen the finished product. I had an email from Amazon that my copies shipped yesterday, and I still haven't received my author copies. WAH!

Since I haven't seen the actual book, it still hasn't quite hit me yet, but I'm sure it will in a day or two. PLEASE!!!

Meanwhile, I have a post up at Casablanca Authors with a new excerpt from TToV (just click on the title of this post to go there). This scene happens to be a favorite of my critique partner, Jo-Mama.

If YOU have received your copy of The Treasures of Venice, I am insanely jealous! But please sent me a photo so I can at least drool over yours until my copies arrive.

Woohoo! Hope your copies arrive soon. Loved the excerpt by the way.

Oh my. Already?! I'll have to start combing the stores around here.


Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

Thanx Sheila!

I'm sooo excited! Everytime I hear a noise at the front gate I run to the window to see if it is the FedEx guy with my author copies. :-P

Do you belong to my newletter group?!?! I hope so! And hope EVERYONE will join because I've posted a lot of bonus excerpts there that I haven't posted anywhere else.

I wanna see a piccie of your smiling face right next to that HAWT cover! :-)


Jane said...

Woohoo. It'll be exciting when your author copies arrive.

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

Yes, Jane!!!!

They arrived this afternoon!!! WOO!!HOO!! The cover is even more beautiful than the ARC! The red lettering on the front and the red on the spine have a wonderful metallic sheen. There's also an excerpt from the first chapter of The Wild Sight at the end. YAY!!!

giddy with the excitement

Congrats, Cindy! I can't wait to see the final product in the stores.

Btw, my review of TToV is scheduled to post at RNTV on Sept. 5th. I thought it was terrific!

Hooray, AC! Did you take them out and make beautiful piles of them around the house? Take some pics and post them :)

BTW, what's your blog-touring schedule? (So that we can stalk you all over the web ;))

Loucinda McGary aka Aunty Cindy said...

THanx a BUNCH, PJ!

I'm sooo glad you liked it!

Fedora, good idea about posting the blog tour schedule! I'd love to see my "special" followers win some free books!
