The Delivery of a New Baby Book (a pictorial journey)

Yesterday afternoon, I got an e-mail from UPS stating that my box of books had been shipped. This morning, I was a little antsy.

Staring at the clock ...


Shortly after this picture was taken, I heard steps on my front porch. I heard a thump. I heard a knock. I opened the door, camera in hand, and this is what I saw:


Of course, I had to open it right away.



Books! Books! Beautiful books!



The glee can scarcely be contained.


Here I am in my slightly more professional author persona.

Don't forget to join in my partying at Provident Book this Saturday!
