Galleys for OUT OF THE WILD!
Look, look, look, the galleys for OUT OF THE WILD are here!!! Snoopy Dance of Joy!!!
Wait, before you look, let me back up and explain... OUT OF THE WILD is the sequel to INTO THE WILD, coming out in June 2008. It's my second book. (Here's a summary.) I'm very, very excited about it. A galley (also known as an advance reader's copy or ARC) is the step before it becomes a finished book. It's basically a mock-up of what the book will look like, except that it's in paperback, has yet to be proofread, and (in this case) is missing the shiny foil part of the cover art. (The real book will be hardcover and have a shiny silver stripe. Yay for shiny!) Okay, now may I have a drumroll please? Presenting... the galley for OUT OF THE WILD...
And to continue a tradition started by the lovely and talented Diana Peterfreund, here's me with my beloved galleys:

And in case you were wondering, the silhouette on the cover is Julie on a flying bath mat. Yes, a flying bath mat. :)
