Today I received the first copy of my book. Unfortunately, it’s not actually mine; it’s a copy for a reviewer that I’ll be signing and sending out. Is it weird that the reviewers get a copy of the book before me? Ah well, it’s still pretty cool, if not creepy, to see my face on top of a book. I wonder if I’ll be able to go to a bookstore and find it.

In any event, the official release isn’t for a couple more days, so Amazon still says you need to pre-order it. However, if you do, you should receive it fairly quickly since they’re all printed up and ready to go.
