Essex Dogs has finally arrived from the UK and I am IN LOVE.
A while back, before the book was officially available for purchase, Dan did a Facebook Live where he was autographing several hundred copies of his first dip into historical fiction (it will be a trilogy).
I pre-ordered the book ages ago on Amazon, and it is not out here in the US until February 7th. After watching the Live, I decided I could not wait that long. OBVIOUSLY.
I ordered one of the 1,346 numbered, signed, limited first editions and it finally arrived today! I opened it to take a look, then promptly wrapped it back up where it will stay until Dan comes in February for the US leg of his book tour.
(FYI - 1346 was the year of the Battle of Crécy.)
SO EXCITED!!! It's SO pretty.Delete
So, you're a bit pleased then? I'd go so far as to say even moderately enthusiastic.....ReplyDelete
Yes!! And you have to read it and go meet him at a signing and tell him you know me and that I sure am lovely and wonderful, lol.Delete
YESSSSS you must be excited. :) I'm going to read the Plantagenet book soon thanks to your rec.ReplyDelete
That 1346 thing is kinda neat. :)
I can't wait for you to read it!! It will always be my fave of his books. It's so good.Delete
I thought so too. Dan kept the last copy as his personally.
Glad you have the book you wanted so badly!ReplyDelete
It's so good, and pretty, that I can hardly stand to look at it!Delete
