Yesterday I opened a box of Advanced Review Copies (ARCs) of my May, 09 release, To Hell in a Handbasket. Even though this is my second published novel, I was still thrilled to hold a professionally printed version of my words in my hands, complete with a beautiful cover, bio, cover blurb, acknowledgments, etc. Now comes the hard part of deciding which lucky reviewers I will send those very few copies to. :-) My publisher sends out a couple dozen ARCs to the big-name reviewers and my copies go to local newspapers, ezines, alumni magazines, etc. Next is the nail biting phase where I wait to see if I get any good reviews!

Yes, Crimewriter, it will be May of this year, and it's already available for preorder on the Barnes & Noble website--for 25% off for members! I'm hoping Amazon will get it up soon.

Congratulations, Beth. I know what you mean by it being a thrill. Although, I have yet to experience the rush of opening a box of books, I have received two ARCs of my debut in the post: one in English, the other in German, and I was just (and still am) tickled by being able to hold each one in my hands.
