Attack of the Giant Books (and thanks Erica!)

I came home last night slightly tipsy from 1.99$ margaritas. My boyfriend told me I had a very large package waiting for me and I was trying to figure out what I'd ordered. When we finally got inside, I saw that it was from my publicist, Erica Feldon. I remember that she said she'd sent me two posters that I could bring to my non-bookstore events (ie. Printer's Row, the release party at the Beacon Pub and the library stuff). I figured she would just send me posters, like the kind you hang on a wall with thumb tacks. Well, actually wasn't sure what I expected. I just asked for some sort of larger than a book-type advertisement, Erica said she would do what she could. I did not expect giant stand-up cardboard book covers!!! Seriously these things are huge and gorgeous and now I feel like the star of some big movie with my name appearing so huge.
It was particularly exciting because I was slightly drunk, so we took pictures of the giant book with each cat.
And me just being like "Holy shit, my publicist rocks!"

And since I didn't start working with Erica until after the acknowledgments page for the book was written, I didn't get a chance to thank her properly in a public forum. So this is my big thank you blog for Erica. She has been awesome to work with, answers my fifty million questions, and so far hasn't thought any of my ideas to be too crazy. I ask her for things and she does them very quickly. So far, she has been able to make everything happen (fingers and toes crossed that she scores the venue for Rock and Read in which case I'll have to send her lots of chocolate or something). In short, she is amazing. So thanks, Erica. You made my Friday night delightful!
