I've seen the cover for Xmas Carol!

(Republished to fix tags. Oops.)

Wow! Casey did a bang-up job on the cover for Xmas Carol. Wait'll you guys see it. It's amazing. And yes, I'm afraid you'll have to wait until the book is released. But tell you what . . . I'll post the cover here a few days before I click the "Publish" button at Amazon. So you will see a preview. (This means you're very important; never forget this.)

I can't get over it. The cover is so cool. Artichoke Annie and cousin Carmine -- both readers of draft versions of the book -- were given a special preview and both seemed to love it. Their opinions count because they're artists.

As I told Casey, I'll go to bed a happy man tonight. My book has a cover. Woot!  So hang on, guys. The book is truly, really, actually on the way. I'm not sure if I can meet the Xmas deadline but I'm going to try. It's going to be very close.

Dear Santa,

I hope you are having a jolly day and just in the 'nick' of time, right?

All I want this year is Xmas Carol and I know you won't disappoint me. I have been a very good girl.

Cookies and milk will be set out as usual.

I can't wait to put that final version on the virtual bookshelf in my iBooks app and start reading it. I'm ready!!

I am so excited about all this as well. Looking forward to the re-read.
