The place: my desk
The time: about twenty minutes ago
The mood: slightly fuzzy start-of-the-day feeling

Me: Hmmm, back in the office again...oh god, more book parcels...what dreadful rubbish will be concealed within? *opens parcels* Eeeeeeek!

Yes, I really did squee loudly. For what was in the parcel but the debut novel of the wonderful yiskah!!! Congratulations, Jess - it looks absolutely amazing and, having read bits of it in its early stages, I really can't wait to read the whole thing (and, of course, praise in lavishly in print). You rock!

I don't think it is, actually, because the press release says that it is coming out in February! We must ask yiskah...

I was going to ask about that, because I tried to order it in my local bookshop the other day, and they said it wasn't out until the middle of next year. February is even better.

Squeeee! I was in England a few weeks ago and checked every bookshop I passed and couldn't find it. But now it is out!

HOORAY! I presume your copy is advance-y, but I shall look nonetheless, and start plugging.

Also, go on, give us a totally non-legit preview of the cover so we can all sqee properly too.

Eee! I cannot wait to buy the book and be able to say "oh yes, my friend wrote it". Jess rocks.

My housemate's cousin, I only found out the other day, is a massively successful children's author. Apparently it was in the news a few years ago when he got a huge advance and all the papers were excited about it. Katie says him and his wife didn't do anything more exciting than buy a Volvo.

Oh, how exciting! I check our database at work sometimes to see if it's been ordered by our buyers yet, and it still comes up as not yet published.
