Christmas Morning

A few weeks ago, I commissioned an artist to do the stills for the book trailer and other promotional materials. The second preliminary sketch is due today, and I feel like a kid on Christmas morning.

Actually, since I'll get another one every few days for the next month, maybe it's more like those advent calendars with the piece of chocolate behind each dated door. Or Hanukkah.*

* the ancient festival of energy conservation. There are 17 different spellings for this word, all of which are wrong.

The advent calendar chocolate was the BEST, because the chocolate mixed with the taste of anticipation. I see that giddy thrill in my kids, when excitement leaks from every pore and they bounce with excess energy. Their every movement becomes the embodiment of "WOW!"

My book's coming out in June. And I'm already bouncing on the inside.

It's really exciting to have a book coming out! Will it be in stores or self-published?

It's coming out through a small indie publisher called Spencer Hill Press, but it's going through Ingram's distribution network, so it will be available on Amazon and in Barnes and Noble. There's also a Kindle edition.

That would sound more impressive if I wasn't one of the owners of Spencer Hill Press.

I saw on your blog that you wrote a book about Hatshepsut. I love Egyptian history! Did you write a history, a narrative history, or an historical fiction?
