There are few things better than this:
The author copies (ten of them) arrived Tuesday, and as you can see, they look great. It seems that, for Dundurn at least, author copies can arrive a couple of months before the official release date (which is still May 27). In Dundurn’s case, this is because they have to wait those two months for copies to filter out to the media and be in bookstores for the publicity push to happen. So there will be no bringing forward of the launch party dates, which are firming up around the end of May and the beginning of June.
