I received my copy of Pirates of the Blue Kingdoms Wednesday. I'm still a little giddy about the whole business. It's finally real! This means I'll be storming the castles (a.k.a. local retailers) next week to try to get them to stock the thing.
In related (small publisher) news, McSweeney's needs our help. Go buy a book or three and help out the little guys.
I'll post about my trip to Chicago tomorrow. Right now all I want is a good book and a little sleep.
