Meaningless Milestones

I am disproportionately excited. I know my excitement is disproportionate, but it's a first so I'm gonna wallow in it for as long as I can.

Tickle My Fantasy, the print anthology edition of The Ghost Shrink, the Accidental Gigolo & the Poltergeist Accountant is now available for pre-order on Amazon! LOOK! We have a page! You can search for me and everything!

I know it is a real book, but I haven't been able to hold it in my eager little hands yet and this just makes it seem so much more real somehow. I'm gonna have a book out in print this year. It will be on shelves in bookstores. Real, live, brick-and-mortar bookstores! In December! Merry Christmas to me! Anyone for a rousing June chorus of Jingle Bells? Or perhaps Joy to the World? Joy to the fishes in the deep blue sea... Oh, wait, that's the wrong one. Oh well. It's still about joy. And that's where I am right now.

I take back all the "evil empire" comments and snarky things I said about you, Amazon. You have validated my existence with your most excellent pre-order page. My joy is beyond measure. Go on, just try to measure it. I dare you.

Congratulations! I think this is a great milestone. It's so TANGIBLE.

I didn't know Amazon posted pre-sales so far in advance -- they must be as eager to see your book in print as I am!
