Galleys for The Farfield Curse!

The first printed copies of my book are finally here!
Before anyone comments that a plain white cover is very boring, I shall explain. This is not the actual book yet, but what are called bound galleys. As a cheat sheet:
ARC‘s: Advance Reader Copies, sent to Special Peoples before a book comes out.
BOUND GALLEYS: an advance Advance Reader Copy, sent to Really Special People even longer before a book comes out.
WHODUNNIT: what a publisher says when a Bound Galley mysteriously goes missing, coincidentally just after the author receives them in the mail.
The bound galleys are basically just printings of the book, double-spaced, with a softcover wrapped around it and the title slapped on. Even the chapter titles are in a plain, tiny, boring font: much unlike how the finished book will appear!
This, however, marks the first ever edition of The Farfield Curse to be printed by Sourcebooks, albeit a very small and very unedited version. This also means that things are truly, finally starting to move faster in the preparations for the release. I can’t even begin to describe the huge stuff that my publishers are planning for this release, and it’s getting to be so exciting. I will say that April will be a very big month for everyone who has waited all this time, especially me.
April will also be a very big month for everyone who has waited to see the cover art. And that is all I shall say on that for now
