I have a hardcover!

... and one of these days, I will have a digital camera. Even if I'm allergic to cameras.

But I have author's copies of Hidden City in my hall. I have stubbed my toes 4 times on the boxes, which is proof that they're real, the other proof being papercuts. Don't ask.

I expected them to come much later, because they're shipped from Penguin Canada now (for Canadian authors, which does save money), but I think they're shipped directly to the warehouse which just does a straight passthrough.

But it doesn't matter why they're here early -- and I am staring at the book sitting beside my computer like an adolescent in the first throes of love.

ETA: No, I am not actually reading any of it, because it hasn't been long enough since I looked at the galleys. I'm just ... staring at Jody's art & the overall design.

NOthing like a brand new bouncing baby book to lighten the heart and scare the wits out of you.

Yes to both -- this is also my first hardcover, so it is bright, shiny and utterly terrifying.
