I'll be looking forward to it. And yes, first time I've really gone beyond twitter and the blog. Makes a nice change.

For a while I didn't really have my real name easy to find, even on the website. I decided to give up on that, what with facebook and goodreads and all this.

Karly Kirkpatrick Is is funny that I only know you by Fourpartland?! Good to see you here! The book is looking good!

Thanks. It's been a fun seven years to this point, will be great to finally see it in print and hold it. I'll probably be sleeping with it under my pillow.
