First Love for “Crazy Love You”

Each year when early proofs are ready for the new book, copies go to fellow authors. I send some; my editor and agent send some. It’s always with humility and a bit of nervousness that I do this. I know how busy everyone is — looming deadlines, family, research, a towering stack of other galleys — and that often just receiving another book in the mail is an imposition.  Also, these copies always go to people I admire, respect, and whose work has inspired me. So, there’s a lot of angst and nail-biting when I’m making my list.
