It’s a Real Book.

Oh. My.

Look what some lovely person delivered to my door!

I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it feels to hold this book in my hands! Thankfully, I don’t need to because this video pretty much sums up how elated I am right now. Could I be more smiley?


 A sneak peek at the inside!


Wow. Real books. This blows my mind.



The Lego art is a time traveling car, made with love by my little girl, Lauren. The horse is absolutely necessary because, according to Lauren, you might arrive before cars have been invented and you’ll want immediate transportation. Works for me. Behold: time traveling car, with horse.

That red box on the bottom is starting to fill up with postcards from the locations featured in TIME BETWEEN US (psst. They’re to give away!).


 These are my smallest, bestest friends, Aidan and Lauren.









The kids insisted that Dakota get in on the book action.










I’ll get to share books very soon, but I can’t yet (sorry!). But when I hold my first contest, I’ll give away one of these signed ARCs. With bookmarks. And with whatever else I plastered this image on, because I’m going a bit overboard over here. You don’t mind, do you?

    So incredibly proud of you. But in no way surprised. You have always been the most amazing woman I have ever known. I love you. Always will.
