It’s a momentous day for Panorama City, the novel.
The paperback is out!
I love the cover, with its cursive title (which I hope people can still read) and its mylar balloon.
When it was first acquired by my editor, years ago, PC was originally meant to be published in paperback. But she moved houses, to Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, and brought the book with her, where it was published in beautiful hardcover last fall. This led to all kinds of good things, like getting picked for the BEA Buzz Panel, and getting an awesome review in the New York Times, and being listed as one of the best books of 2012 by the San Francisco Chronicle, and so on.
What a fabulous party.
Today, my novel hangs up the dinner jacket and puts on its red pants and t-shirt.
To walk the earth and make new friends.
