ARC Arrival

Today the postman left an amazing surprise on my doorstep:

chasing the valley ARC
Yep. That’s an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) of Chasing the Valley. The white bar on the front cover says it’s an “uncorrected proof” and “not for sale”.

This is the first time I’ve held my book in my hands. It’s not just a Word document or a printed stack of pages. It’s a BOOK! This is one of the most exciting milestones in my publishing journey so far.
