Mammoth Book of Special Ops Romance: The Exciting Bits

For some reason, don't ask me why, the part of publishing that thrills me the second most is seeing the book go up on Amazon.  The first most thrilling part is getting your author copies and going 'holy crap did I write this epitome of literary brilliance??'

So The Mammoth Book of Special Ops Romance (let's just call it MBSOR from now on) has just gone up.  You can see it here.  I have spent an embarrassing amount of time looking at My Name in the index, and getting goosebumps from all the great authors that surround my name. I mean they are so great. (Here I planned to make a list and put loads of exclamation marks and smiley faces and things like 'oh oh' and 'I am not worthy' but then I realised that I have ferocious PMT and have retained every drop of fluid I've drunk in the last fortnight - yes people I am a whale. A WHALE - and so therefore my judgement of what may or may not be classed as entertaining has disappeared to the same place as my sense of humor and patience.)

 MBSOR is also up on my most favorite book ordering website... The Book Depository.   They are almost always cheaper than amazon and do FREE INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING.  If you are ordering books, get them there. No, don't argue. Just get them there.
Finally, the book might just be in Aussie bookshops. MIGHT. I don't know for sure yet - but rumour has it that if it is then it'll start appearing around 1 May.  Don't worry, I'll probably mention it once or twice when I find out for sure.

What was your first book Caitlyn? And what one should I read first?

E. said...

Well Done! It looks good.

Being Me said...

Oh yes, The Book Depository is the only place I get my books.

Congratulations! I am in awe, you must know you are a true inspiration to me to keeeep goinggggg (although I often fear my juggernaut shall never see the light of day in the marketplace).

Thanks E :)

Webbers - my first book was Running Scared - it was also the first manuscript I ever wrote. Reading wise, get MBSOR, then if you don't like The Grey Man, you've got thirty odd other authors you will love. :)

Oh Being Me! Thanks love. You made me really smile. Now your book WILL see the light of day - with e-publishing growing the way it is, the opportunities to get your book out there are much bigger than you may realise. Just have faith that it will happen, because it will :)

I can't even imagine just how exciting an amazon listing would be.

How truly exciting!

You have every right to be proud of your achievements... And yes, a lot of us are green with envy (of both your talent and the book!).

I want to know why it is a "Mammoth" book ... It would seem hairy elephant-like creatures are not that relevant to the contents ... Or are they?!
