So I got my first copies of the hard-bound version of Trail Angel, a big event for any first-time author. Even better, some of the people who pre-ordered copies are starting to get theirs, and they’ve shared these really creative photos with me — from a Wisconsin school library where Trail Angel keeps company with otters and minks and bears (oh, my!) — to a Central Florida prairie that looks like it could double as a movie set, and even a cow-hide rug. Thanks to all of you!

If you’re still looking for a copy, you can order either the hardback or the e-book version here.

Even if all you have is the dining room table where you opened the box, I hope you’ll share the image.
