Look What the Stork Delivered!!

Greetings, Knights and Swordmaidens! No, the Batson household hasn't welcomed a fifth child. But in many ways, the moment a writer gets to hold his/her book in hand, well…it's just pure joy. I came home very tired from teaching today. And BEHOLD, there be boxes on me doorstep! Big FEDEX boxes! Immediately, I'm turning cartwheels!

In other news, don't forget: Mark your calendars for...

1) Dark Sea Saturday: November 26th--visit Enter the Door Within (HERE) for a HUGE announcement. The kickoff of the biggest contest I've ever been a part of.

2) December 3rd Lunch, Signing, Errant King Release Party:
WANNA DO LUNCH? Author chat and booksigning for The Errant King coming soon: December 3rd 12-3 pm in Ellicott City at His Way and Nora's Cafe. Contact Michelle Audrey Black (410) 549-8746 to reserve your seat!

Happy for you for your new beautiful book... so looking forward to reading it! I will for sure mark my calendar for your new epic contest :-)

Jake said...

Epic! I have my copy already. :D I've only read the prologue, but it's epic so far. I'm saving it for the plane ride. *nods*

Mary Ruth Pursselley said...

Congratulations on your new arrival! : D I can't wait to read it... and you've also got me started longing for the day when my own book is arriving in FEDEX boxes on the doorstep. : )

Sarah Pennington said...

Awesome! I borrowed my friend's copy and loved it.

I cannot wait for the Dark Sea Saturday announcement. I'm inches away from being hyper about it.

Elliot City? Wonder where that is in relation to me . . . hmm.

I have a new name for October-December (aka when all the awesome new books seem to come out): The Season Of Awesomeness.

YESSSSS!!!! *I do 10 jumping jacks, and yes, 5 cartwheels* YEEEESSSSSSSS!!!!!!! *I run around my house twice*
YEEEEEEESSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!! *I email my friends*
YYYYEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!! *I gather my army of elves for a party*
YYYYYYYYEEEEEEESSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! *I post this comment.*

Okay, maybe I didn't quite do all of those things, but still that is AWESOME!! I am so happy for you and, of-course, all of your readers (including myself). And I am DEFINITELY going to do my best to make it to the lunch/book signing on the third...with some of my elf friends, as long as they are invited... :)

I can't wait to get The Errant King. And I kind-of know how you feel about when you saw that Fed-Ex package. I have always dreamed of getting a book published, and I hope it will become a reality within the next few years, as I am working on my own book right now.

And, not to interrupt the celebration but my elves and I want to know something....when is the new Berinfell book coming out?

I've been waiting for The Errant King to come out since I've heard about it. Dark Sea Saturday sounds great, but I live in Ohio. The book looks like it has a great cover.

GAHH!!! Me is so excited!!! I pre-ordered my copy back in July and have been waiting ever since. : ) Also, I read the first few chapters and am totally ready to read more!!!

Can't wait for Dark Sea Saturday!

Megan said...

Yeah! I'm glad you have another book out! I've LOVED, LOVED, LOVED your Door Within and Berinfel Prophecies so far and I can't wait to get more.
It looks awesomely epic. Congratulations.

I am totally excited for you. I have my copy but am re-reading the Sword in the Stars, just so I can be caught up on all the details. I hope that one day I can get a book published so I can have the same thrill you must get.

The Errant King is ridiculously awesome,though I believe it would become ludicrously awesome sauce with a map
