It's Here!!!!

No, that's not me nor is it my camel. Nor did I take the picture. I saw it, unattributed, on Facebook and grabbed it because it makes me smile. 

But it does seem the perfect image to announce that (drumroll)
 
Under the Skin is out today!!!

I'll be celebrating with a launch party this evening at 6:30 at Fountainhead Books in Hendersonville, NC. You're invited and I really hope to see some of you who live in the area.

This is my sixth novel. Signs in the Blood, the first, came out in 2005 and I'm still kind of amazed at having completed another one.

Over in the sidebar are the other Under the Skin events I'll be doing this month and next. Coming soon, to a bookstore or library near some of you!

Things are a little frazzled around here -- as of 6 last night, we adopted another dog. More about her soon.We will return to commercial and Blatant Self Promotion free blogging tomorrow. I promise.

Oh fun!!! And that photo is hysterical. Congratulations! I would definitely be in Hendersonville to join the celebration if I were not in Greensboro. I'll have to try to make one of the other upcoming events. I want my signed copy! :)

I'm giggling my a$$ off at that one! (I sure hope it makes my jeans less snug!)

And there it was on my Kindle to start reading with my breakfast!! Yippee!!
Love the picture - and how wonderful to feel that way!
I wish I could come to your launch party, but 700 miles is just a wee bit to far.
A new doggie! Cause for celebration as well! Pictures, please!
And congratulations on the publication of a new book. May they go into reprints for years and years!

Just back from Hendersonville and a wonderful visit to the Fountainhead bookstore. It was particularly fun to meet Tracy, one of the frequent commenters on the blog as well as some other Elizabeth fans who've been patiently (or not) waiting...

Received mine yesterday afternoon - can't wait to read it.
LOVE that photo! I was pretty certain that wasn't you (alright, at first I thought it WAS you) or your camel, but thanks for letting us know for sure! ; )
