The Secret Art of Being a Parent: Big Box of Books + Pre-Order Links
The feeling of getting a big heavy box full of copies of your very own book that you wrote delivered to your apartment is a related but different feeling to the feeling when you hold a finished copy of your book in your hand for the first time. Both experiences share that holy-crap-this-is-really-real vibe, but whereas your first copy floats in on a cloud of fairy dust, your box of author copies (or "gratis copies" as they're known in the trade) plunks down with all the force and heft of an adorable baby elephant entering your life -- this thing is going to need your time and attention, people, but it is also going to provide you with glee and delight.
If, by chance, you'd like to pre-order The Secret Art of Being a Parent (perhaps you know a pregnant person who needs friendly, practical, you've-got-this-babe encouragement as a gift?) you can do so at any of these fine retail outlets, or your local indie bookstore, and get it in your hands when it comes out on April 16th:
