Holding the book for the first time
Today was the first time I actually held the book in my hand! A small number of advance reader copies (ARCs) were printed for reviewers and Shannon sent one to me. The final cover is still being designed.
Holding the book was pretty amazing. Not "holding your grandson for the first time" amazing, but still wonderful.
We are still on track to open preorders on 7/29/2021 and launch the book on 9/28/2021.
