I was thrilled to receive several full-color galleys for my novel, The Sister Queens, last week.  For those of you not familiar with the term “galleys,” they are uncorrected proofs of a novel.  When they are in bound form as mine are they can also be called ARCs (advance reader copies).  How I wish I had enough galleys to share with all of you who have been regular visitors to my site and so supportive of my writing. Alas, however, I do not.

I just had to find another way to share a sneak peek at the galleys and my excitement over them (and I AM excited because this is as close as I’ve come to holding my writing in actual book form). So, though I am by no means a technically savvy person, I’ve created a short “Galley Preview” video. Hope you enjoy it.

  1. I’m so terribly excited for you, Sophie!! Love the idea of the video, too!! Great way to showcase the galley.

  2. The cover look great, Sophie. Great idea to do a video – can’t wait to read the book!

  3. Sophie, I’m absurdly excited for you. The cover looks so beautiful! Can’t wait for it to come out!

  4. Now that’s got to be exciting–holding it in your hands. Dang it’s thick. Hang on… that’s got to be over 100K! Isn’t there a rule against that? Oh, nevermind… it’s historical fiction. Sweet!

    • I will make a deal with you Jean — you can stop reading when you get to the 101,000th word if you are so inclined. But I am betting you won’t 😉

      • Nope. You are right. I’m going to read each and every word.

        Now, come on March 2012! I’ve preordered my copy. All I have to do is wait. And wait. And wait. 🙂

  5. Haven’t you had fun with this – it’s fab! You must be hopping about now waiting for the Real Thing to be available to the rest of us. Hope you have a big party then.

  6. Amazing, Sophie. I’m so excited for you, my heart is racing. Can’t imagine how incredible it was to actually hold your book in your hands.

    Not when I’m looking forward to holding it in mine!

    Best luck and thanks so much for sharing your journey.

    Did I mention, “SQUEEE!!!”? I thought not. But maybe you heard it all the way from here.

  7. Just beautiful, I love the colors! I cannot wait to read it when it comes out! Congrautlations Sophie!
