Meeting My Book

So yesterday, Small Son and I went to Books-A-Million so that he could play at the train table. I'm not gonna lie, I was definitely hoping to see HEX HALL out in the wild, too, but I didn't really expect to. After all, I'd been stalking BAM all week to no avail!

But still, once we got there, I thought I'd mosy over to the teen section and take a peek.

And there it was.

Actually, there were SIX of them. My Book Beh-Beh. The concrete proof of the chance The Husband and I took on ourselves.

Now, I've seen lots of of my book over the past month or so. I have a box of them in my office for pete's sake!

But that was nothing compared to seeing them out there where other people can buy them. It is one of the few things I don't have words for.

As much as I would have loved to stand there all day staring and drooling, Small Son was extremely unimpressed (and impatient to get to the train table.)

But he DID snap this pic of me standing in front of HEX HALL. Sure, you can't see the book,, most of my face, but what you CAN see? Yeah, that sums it up!

It's here! It's there! It's everywhere! And now you can all read it, too!

So please do! AND if you're in Mississippi tomorrow night, come on out to Lemuria Books in Jackson at 5PM, and say hi!

Be hexcellent to each other!
