The folks at Tor sent me a couple of copies of my book this week. I was so anxious about actually seeing the finished work, the culmination of over five years of hoping and dreaming, that I couldn't bring myself to open the package until the following day. When I did I was pleased, indeed. It's a very handsome volume. The cover should stand out on any bookshelf, and the text layout is very fine.
I'm not sure when the actual release date is. I think it's November 1. The Fairbanks Arts Association is hosting my book launch at the Bear Gallery in Alaskaland (aka Pioneer Park) on Saturday, November 5, from 6:30--8:30 pm. If you happen to be in the Fairbanks area then, please do drop by.
