Oh, Man, It's Really Real

They're here!

I have finished books. Not cover flats, although those were lovely and exciting, and not ARCs, although I squeed over those, too. No. These are the real deal! Finished, completed, ready to be read by people other than my family and friends, and a few select and cherished reviewers.

See how pretty?
I did take a few pics of myself holding up a copy and smiling, but had to delete them. Upon mature consideration, it became clear that no reader in her right mind would buy a book written by someone sporting such a wild, maniacal grin.

Now what this really means for all of you lovely people who've been clamoring for an early peek at Can't Stand the Heat is that I have one, single, solitary Advance Reading Copy I've been saving for a rainy day. What do you think I should do with that ARC, hmmm? I'm thinking contest. Maybe even a recipe contest, where you'd send in your favorite recipe featuring something summery like corn or tomatoes. I'd pick the one that sounds best and award that cook a free, signed copy of my last ARC of Can't Stand the Heat.

What do you think?


congrats my friend! There's definitely not a better feeling in the world!!!

Oooh! I can't wait for my copy. This is totally exciting news :) CONGRATS!


Congrats. It's so exciting and I can't wait till it comes out.

They look gorgeous. Almost good enough to eat:)

How wonderful! Congratulations!

Love it!! Big congrats.

Hi, Ms. Edwards. I just wanted to let you know that your book, Can't Stand the Heat, is going to be the first selection of the Barnes & Noble in Metairie, Louisiana's Heart to Heart Book Club. We already have it pre-ordered, and we can't wait to set up our Book Club Recommends display featuring your book!

So very exciting, Lousia. Can't wait to get my hands on one, too!

OH, and how great is HLS's comment???

And as for the ARC. Just send it to me. Contests are so much work. ;-)

Wow, thanks for all the congrats, and BIG thanks to HLS for choosing Can't Stand the Heat as their book club pick! If you guys have any questions after reading it, I'd love to be part of the discussion. : )
