Look Look I'm A Book!

(NOTE: Based on time elapsed since the posting of this entry, the BS-o-meter calculates this is 12.06% likely to be something that Ferrett now regrets.)

So Angry Robot posted this photo today:
Me! On a god damned book!
I do not as yet have copies of my book. This merely means it has been printed, and is currently wending its way from the printers to the warehouses to the bookstores to the shelves.  (As someone who used to buy books for Borders, I can tell you that shipping logistics is a major factor most people don’t consider.)  It won’t come out until 3/3, and even then some stores may take their time unpacking it for your purchasing power.
There is a book out there. Several thousand of them, in fact.
With me on it.
After thirty years of trying to get there, I got there, and wow am I proud.
In other news, if you’d like to celebrate my book release with me – my “book birthday,” as they say in the trade, is on March 3rd, a date I share with Catherynne Valente’s new Fairyland book  – then on Friday, March 6th, I’ll be doing a signing in Cleveland.  With cake. And donuts.  And me, smiling like a goon and desperately wanting a drink afterwards.
So if you’re thinking about going, maybe you can say Yea or Nay at this Facebook event, so we have some idea of how many people are coming out to Loganberry books. I will totally hug you!  And say hello! And critique your donuts.
(And my fantastic coordinator Mike Underwood is figuring out the last of the West Coast dates, so look for that soon!)
