Last Sunday I went to a signing (more about that later), and the bookseller said, "Oh, Julia, I'm still reading your galley copy."
"My what?" I asked.
"Your galley," he said, holding up a copy of Madeline Mann, which I did not know existed yet in book form. That was a lovely little surprise to appear at someone else's signing! So I took a picture of it.
Isn't she cute? She still doesn't come out for many months, but it's wonderful to see the book in bound form at long last.
