A whole box of pretty, shiny final copies of the real-live-book-O-M-G-it's-here paperbacks of INDELIBLE! It's here! In my hands! Right now!* I opened the box and it even had that new-book smell! I couldn't wait to grab one and shove it into the hands of everyone I knew! Why? Because this is a tactile experience and, if you know anything about me, you know that I'm all about the sensory trip.
These books are SUPER shiny because the rose and the lettering are glossy, raised and embossed--popping off the page like only real book covers do!
I'm trying (and failing) to capture the effect on film, but trust me, your fingertips will know the difference! I am reminded of this line from the book: "He was reading her like Braille." I'm similarly enraptured, fascinated, unable to turn away... (cough) (ahem)
ANYway, to celebrate, you know what I'm going to do? I'm going to GIVE SOME AWAY!
Nathan Fillion totally approves.
Of course, that means I have to make you do something... hmm... how about:
