Wahoo! I got my author's copies in the mail from my editor!! I'm so excited! It's hard to believe that one little sentence that popped into my head 20 years ago, "You'll never believe what I saw at the zoo" is now a real, hardcover book from Simon & Schuster! Anyone who has edited a book will understand this - that sentence is no longer in the book - it got cut in the last round of edits. I don't care :-)
The big one is a full-size hardcover that will be in stores July 20, 2010 and the small one is a paperback that will be in Cheerios boxes in March. I can't believe it's almost here - it's been a long year!
