Oh, Harlequin, you tease!

So I got very excited yesterday when a UPS guy turned up on my doorstep with a box. I don't often get UPS deliveries and the last time I did, it turned out to be pretty special. So with that in mind, I was a little confused when the box turned out to be much smaller than last time. Hmm. Maybe, I thought, my publisher has sent me a present?


As it turns out they had:


The box only held three copies -- my copies of the "larger print" versions of In His Eyes (the standard version is still to come). Although it's not quite the same as opening a large box filled with dozens of copies it's still a magical moment seeing my book in reality.

The same questions as last time struck me. Did I really do this? Is this real? Am I really a published author with Harlequin?

The larger print did nothing to clarify things. :)

I wonder if the wonder ever wears off?

  2. Wow - how exciting!!!! I love the cover and it def relates to the book.

    If your readers loved "Cassie" (which was a fabulous read) they will adore "In His Eyes"!!!

    And to answer your questions - YES, YES, YES :)

    Enjoy a celebratory glass of bubbles although today is so cold, a cup of tea would probably be better - LOL.

    Congrats on the arrival of your book :)

    1. Thanks Joanne! Yes, I have treated myself to a nice hot cup of my favourite (and most expensive) tea!! Bubbles are always good, though, so I'm sure I'll find a reason to have some soon...

    1. Thanks Louise! I'm still absolutely in love with this cover. It's so pretty. And it has a dark, royal-blue spine which, when put next to Cassie's aqua blue one, looks like a beautifully matched set. :)

  4. Looks great Emmie. A great achievement. One book is amazing, two books shows you've got what it takes.
