Over here over here, Kat's book hit the dusty trails...


These images are blurry - guess why? because I'm hopping around like a crazed bunny (see Easter image in Easter post below)....and, if you feel comfortable, send me a photo of you with Tender Graces - let me know whether it is okay to post it here --- feel free to hide behind the book as I have done...(hey, my hair was wild, I had no make up on, I had a pimple on my chin...laughing)...The book arrival: (teeheehee) and I took photos of my bookshelf before and after and before and after *laugh* I will upload a non-blurry photo of me reading my own book - just to show you I can do it, too -- haw! (and I opened VK Book 2 yesterday - at first I was going "UGH UGH - it's CRAP it's SH****T UGH!...but then, I found it...found VK, found the pace, found the voice, found my way -- oh, how exciting! VK falls in Love - oh oh...No No NO VK...NO....alas, she won't listen to Andy or Bobby, she won't listen to Grandma Faith - she won't listen to Miss Darla -- *sigh* and she certainly doesn't listen to me because I do not exist!)

Janna Qualman said...

Oh my gosh! YIPPEE!

Did the UPS man totally feel bombarded? Good thing he wasn't camera why. ;)

Congratulations! I would have jumped all over the UPS if it was my book.

*um, are you sniffing the cover? Not that there is anything wrong in taking in deep that oh-so-good new book smell*

*smiling*

uhm, one question Kat? Are those your steps??? ; )

Walker said...

Good lord, get an escalator put in.
That's a two pee stop set of stairs if i ever saw one or at least put a urnal in half way.
The guys will love you for it and the girls.....oh why not, everyone has to have some fun once in a while so they'll give it a go to I bet.

I am sure you are excited having Tender Graces on your shelve.
Congratulations again.
Oh...and that's not pretending to read.
That's hiding your chocolate covered face after nervously eating half a choclate cake while waiting for the USP guy or gal to show up.

Missy said...

I can't wait to read it! Congratulations to you!
****hugs*****

Sandra Leigh said...

Heh. Your eyes are dancing with excitement - and it must be contagious. Your UPS lady looks excited, too. What a fabulous day. Congratulations, Kathryn.

YAY!!! I'm so very excited for you and hope that this will be a day you remember forever! I just got the chance to order my own copy, so I am sitting here in eager anticipation of it's arrival!!

Sharla said...

I started it! I was going to wait till night, but couldn't, so I read the first chapter and then had to run off for life to drag me around. I'm in awe. You are one talented writer, girl!

And I'm a little intimidated by those steps.

Sharla said...

Oh! and I made my husband pick up the book so HE could say he held a book of a published author I know.

He gave me a look that said I needed medicating, but he did it anyway.

I'll try to take a pic tonight.

Michelle said...

I am ordering mine next week....

if I were a delivery man I would be leaving all your parcels at the bottom of those deadly stairs!

Sooooo exciting Kat!

Look at that smiling UPS lady walking up a mountain carrying heavy books. I hope you gave her a glass of tea or something. She earned her keep!
And good for you taking photos of your book shelves. You're just about the cutest thing I've ever seen.
