Wondrous Strange is ONE DAY AWAY!

I am so excited. Not only is Santa getting ready to make his world-wide trip, but Wondrous Strange releases TOMORROW! This book is on my Christmas list, and I am crossing my fingers to find it under my tree Christmas morning. If not, it's the first thing I'll buy on the 26th!

Before I ever "met" Lesley, and before we began this oh-so-awesome blog, I read about this book somewhere (and forgive me, but I don't remember where). What's important is how much I LOVED the concept of this much so, I wrote it down in my "Books to buy" folder. Lesley doesn't even know that! Well, I guess she does now. :)

But come on, fairies in Central Park. What could be better? So to say I was excited to "meet" Lesley is a HUGE understatement. Now, not only do I get to be thrilled at finally getting my hands on a book I've wanted to read for what feels like forever, but I get to share in the joy of a fellow author's first release. And seriously folks, little else can compare (at least to us writers!).

The countdown is almost over! And what a wonderful week to have a first release. Huge congrats, Lesley...I can't wait to cuddle up on my couch with a mug of hot chocolate, a cozy blanket, and your book open in front of me.

Merry Christmas!

I just read the blurb about this book today, and I want to read it too! Tracy, how about we each buy a copy and say it was for the other and call it Christmas presents?

Aw Tracy!

Your post just makes me want to give you a big hug!! Thank you.

This is such a crazy feeling. I can't wait until my fellow Novel Girls get to experience this. Even if your manicures will all suffer mightily for it! :-D

I absolutely agree, Tracy! I am so excited to read the book. I am really hoping my pre-ordered copy from Amazon arrives this week!!

Why, why is Amazon delivering my copy on Monday instead of, like, THIS SECOND?
