Kevin - of course, not sad. Pre-order = Awesome! Also, Merc wants you to know that he's extremely big in real life. Ocelots = 2x the size of housecats. Also, Merc = 10x the awesomeness of any lions or tigers or bears you know. If the actual size of his awesomeness were shown, he would not be able to fit on a regular book cover. His image would only be able to be conveyed on a movie poster or billboard,etc.
Hi Liz! :)
Thanks Katie, Nicole, Shel, Elie, & Laura. I agree. SW cover artist = amazingly talented.
SK - I just downloaded the WBW audio, too. Normally I don't actually go back to read my own books unless I'm fact-checking, but I can't resist audios. I love them to pieces, so have to try the Would-Be Witch audio.
RR & R - Thanks! I hope you guys love it.
... I'm gonna have my webmistress post a Halfway Hexed excerpt soon. I just need to update the manuscript pages with the tinkers we did in copy edits.
