do you feel a draft?

o no... it's just that i'm standing here buck nekid.
i was expecting my shipment of books to arrive on the 13th.
It came early.
i'm not even gonna tell you how many i ordered because i'm already half dead from embarrassment & if i can hear you laughing from your computers, i don't know what i'll do...
Anyway - the doorbell rang & Cai squealed, "MOM!! It's your books!! He said there are TWO HUGE boxes!!"
& there were...
"Did you order this many?" He asked, grunting and straining - as though he guessed that this many books. must. be. too many.
"Um," i choked, "i think so..."
Neil's out of town, so Cai helped me hide one of the boxes in a dark corner of her closet. The other one is shoved into our front coat closet.
i have already day dreamed of burning them to hide the evidence.
Insecure much?
All that to say: If you're in Calgary, my books have arrived & you can buy one if you want. Preferably before Neil gets home and sees how much room that box has taken up in our closet... "What the....??!!"
ps - special love to lisa j for swinging by within an hour to buy the first copy. i'm sorry i cried & hugged you... (how humiliating).

If I were in Calgary I'd be there in a heartbeat. I ordered on line, and can't wait for my copy to get here! I'm so proud of you, Paige!

I just received my copy in the mail this afternoon - It came really quickly! I am looking forward to reading it this weekend!

If Doug has a trip to Calgary, I'll come by and buy one or two! Otherwise, I have to wait until Jess gets some.

Tan - this is my least favourite part of "the process" so far... writing is so much more fun.

I won't be in Calgary til summer time, do you have any trips to K-Town planned? If not I'll just order on-line:)
So excited to read your novel, way to go!!

I read your novel over the weekend and enjoyed it very much. I am passing it on to a friend who is a doula now, after raising her 7 children. She also lost a child when she was 5 or 6 months pregnant so I know she will relate to much in the book. Congratulations again! You deserve to be proud of yourself!
