THE VERONICA SERIES -- BOOK PROOFS HAVE ARRIVED!
My nephew says Elizabeth and I gasp at the slightest thing. Well, I let out the mother of all gasps when I opened the package containing the Veronica books!
I have been dreaming about the moment of seeing my books since I watched a facebook live of my high school friend, Courtney Smith Kramer, open her book 21 Reasons Creativity is Like Sex: Why everyone can do it, have a sense of humor about it, and use it to make the world a better place.
About five years ago, my friend, the poet John Buckley, chronicled his infinitely long wait on the postman when his then-most-recent chapbook was due to arrive.
When I went into the UPS store to pick up the package containing The Veronica Series, the owner was working, and her granddaughter and husband were visiting. They were the only people in the store. I felt tempted to open the package and have them share in the experience, but my shy, private personality drove me to simply say, "Thank you!" with a Chershire cat grin.
When I got to my car, I did prop my phone on the steering wheel to capture the moment. Here it is:
