Now This Is Really Exciting

Many writers talk about the thrill of publication day. It's lost on me. Believe me, nothing happens on publication day. Even my family members don't notice.

My attitude is that by publication day, you really ought to be on to other things.

However, when the jpeg for the cover of a new book arrives, now that is exciting. A book is actually coming together. It's time to be talking about flap copy. This is real.

So here you see the recently approved cover illustration by Joe Cepeda for my next book, A Girl, a Boy, and a Monster Cat, which will be published by G. P. Putnam's Sons next June.

And oh, my gosh! Look! Amazon knows about it!

This image isn't larger than usual because I'm vain, but because I've been having trouble posting images on Blogger the last couple of days so Computer Guy had to wave his hands over the keyboard and work some magic.

Very cool. Are you ready to write "A Cabbage, A Weasel, and A Giant Pickle" yet?

A Cabbage and a Giant Pickle...I might be able to do something with that. If the second book goes through editing as is, it has a squirrel so I don't think I'd better mess with the weasel.
