The Spellshop ARCs!!!

My SPELLSHOP ARCs arrived!!! I'm so in awe of the cover artist, Lulu Chen. I can't even imagine how gorgeous the finished hardcover is going to be, with its lovely lavender sprayed edges. I'm picturing that scene in Pulp Fiction when John Travolta opens the glowing briefcase..... *faints in anticipation*
