Shhhh...Don't tell anyone, but we have an advance copy of the book!

Monday morning I received a call from our editor, Kate, at the Mountaineers with the terrific news that she had three advance copies of the book for us. I high-tailed it down to Seattle, then back up to Beth's house and then up north to Amy's. I felt kinda like Santa making his deliveries.

The advance copies arrive by mail in order to get here quicker so that they are available for marketing to send to the magazines, newspapers and other influential folks. The rest of the books are now on a slow boat making their way across the Pacific Ocean. It may take them as long as 4 weeks to get to the Mountaineer warehouse and then they have to be shipped to bookstores and other venues. And then finally, to you!

Here are sample pages from the book...

We will have a copy on display at the studio. And remember you can click on our link on the blog or the website and pre-order on Amazon and save a boat-load of money. Mark your calendars for our Book Launch Party on Saturday, October 4, at 2 p.m. at the studio. -- Lisa
