So, I received this in the mail today from my amazing editor:

This comes from Paul Young, of whom I am now a big fan.

You know, there's been plenty of "pinch me" moments where I wasn't sure this was really happening.  Despite contracts, first check, editorial meetings, etc., there's still this little voice in the back of your head whispering.  Telling you it's all some elaborate prank.

But seeing this, it really hit home.

This is really happening.

Looks Great!

CONGRATULATIONS, Marshall, this is fantastic and I am so happy for you!
Don't pinch yourself too hard: I think it is well deserved and it's only the beginning.
Here is to many more to come, all more successful than the other.
Can't wait to read it!

Congratulations. Very happy for you.
Nice cover too, although I have to say that when I first looked at it, for just a second it looked like the guy was peeing off of that roof.
Not intended as a criticism of your work, but I wanted to mention it since there may be a small percentage of immature minded persons (like myself apparently) who may see that and be distracted from the image you want the cover to present.
Wishing you lots of success with the book!

Floyd- You're not the first to say it. My old college friends are among the immature-minded. It's cool-- stuff like that helps keep me humble in these moments.
