I generally love getting e-mails from my editor. For one thing, I've been blessed with a string of great editors who happen to also be nice people. Beyond that, each e-mail gives me something I need: advice, encouragement, or the next set of instructions on how to improve my current work-in-progress.
Today was an especially good day. My editor sent me a copy of my newest book cover. I've been anxiously awaiting the arrival of this particular image. This story was one I really enjoyed writing and was especially pleased with how it turned out. Seeing what it's going to look like makes this book feel so much more real! Of course, I expect the time will drag by until it comes out in February, but at least now I know what it will look like!
