Finally!

I've been traveling and haven't held the finished product until today.

Good lord, I am on cloud nine!

David--got my copy the other day. The first few stories are incredible. You'll be seeing a review on DBK in the near future.

Some well-deserved cloud-floating.

David Cranmer said...

I'm glad cloud-floating is allowed because I can't seem to stop staring at it.

It was good to start the day with a smile. Thanks.

You should be proud, David. It's a fantastic antho. Hits on all cylinders.

Good Lord, it's a non-scary-looking-almost-positively-sane-looking picture of one of the few writers out here in blog land that I respect.

Congrats once again, and I'm shooting by the end of the year to purchase a copy.

David Barber said...

Congrats, David. I'll be getting a copy soon. It's on my "to do" list.

Regards.

Leah J. Utas said...

As well you should be!

David Cranmer said...

I.J., Thanks again for "Spot Marks the X."

Gracias, Matt. And I'm looking forward to a Mayo original in ROUND 2.

G, Very nice and appreciated praise, sir.

David, You should enter Chris Holm's contest. Who knows you might win a free copy.

Leah, Well I was taught pride cometh before a fall. Gotta be careful.

Charles Gramlich said...

Thumbs up.

Ron Scheer said...

You look great together! Just ordered my copy today. You can expect a review at BITS.

Jodi MacArthur said...

You're holding your baby (the non-living paperly sort)! Congrats!

I am so happy to see that book in your hand. I think I will frame it.

David Cranmer said...

Charles, Amen.

Thanks, Ron. I appreciate the support and hope you get a kick out of the westerns in particular.

Gracias, Jodi. And thanks for "Pillow Talk." It's a smash hit.

Patti, I'm still staring at this book a day later like it was just handed to me.

Randy Johnson said...

I can imagine only one other in your arms, maybe two, that would give you such a more important sense of joy.

Garnett Elliott said...

Got my contributor's copy and ordered another one online. They're beautiful. The stories inside aren't bad, either . . .

Chris said...

Pretty awesome, David. The BTAP crew really did it up right.

David Cranmer said...

Randy, So true, brother. Nothing will top the next bundle that's arriving.

Garnett, We are glad to have you on board.

Thanks, Chris.

And I see your comments are up to 45 on your blog. I will have difficulty picking just one.

Alyssa Goodnight said...

Yay! You should be proud. If you weren't already a legend, this would get you there!

Travis Erwin said...

Sweet. plan to order my very soon.

Chudney Thomas said...

Awesome!

David Cranmer said...

Alyssa, I'm thinking I will have to sell quite a few more books than I have thus far. But I appreciate your vote of confidence, Farrah.

Thanks, Travis!

Chudney, Stupendous too!
