Late last week, we came home to a big box of books—-my books to be exact. We toasted how very beautiful they are, and sniffed the pages to discover a lingering scent of printing ink.

We’d been told to expect the finished product about a month in advance of the official release date, but that still seemed like a long ways away. I remember telling people “Oh, about 3 months,” in December, and somehow that became fixed in my head. Well, it’s just over a month now, and the excitement is starting to build. I suppose I should try to stop looking like a deer caught in headlights every time people ask me for a spontaneous reading.

Also, you can now also pre-order Cauchemar from Target (as well as a slew of other retailers).
