It’s been a great day over here at the homestead so far, boy howdy lemme tell you. First of all, I got my statement in the mail and HOLY CRAP Y’ALL – Boneshaker has earned out its advance! This means that I actually got a royalty check! Not a huge check, but a check all the same! ON ITS VERY FIRST STATEMENT!
[:: dies and is ded ::]
This is a personal first – and if I haven’t leveled up, then I have at least eaten one of those blossomy plant things that gives me the ability to shoot fireballs.
After dancing around like a monkey for awhile, I dragged the husband down the street for Mai Tais, because this called for some celebrating. I might still be a little … um … cheerful. Even as I type this. [:: ahem ::]
If you’d like to know the OTHER reason this has been such a good day so far, well, I suppose you will just have to click the jump below! Why? Because I’m feeling contrary, that’s why. Also, sense of MYSTERY and REVELATION. Also I like jumps. SO. Click the link [:: points down at the link ::]
BOOYAH. Who’s got Dreadnought ARCs? I DO!
[:: does the cabbage patch ::]
[:: does the sprinkler ::]
[:: does the running man ::]
[:: does not care that she looks like a doofus ::]
To those of you who may be wondering why I’m posting this grainy cameraphone shot rather than the actual cover art, well, it’s like this: I don’t know if that’s the final cover art or not. There is still some debate over what’s actually going onto the front of this-here book; but this is what they ran with for the Advance Reader’s Copy, so it’s all cool with me. Beats the black-and-white HERE’S YOUR BOOK blank ones they usually print. Much sexier, this.
Anyway. When there’s a final word on the subject, you can bet that I’ll tell you all about it here. Until then, there you go. It MIGHT look like this.
