No, not that kind.
My author’s copies of The History of the Medieval World arrived!
Ooh, and look at them TOGETHER…
Really a lovely design job–same look as the first, but different colors and other subtle cover variations.

They look fantastic!!! You must be such a proud mama 😉
Congratulations! How much does it weigh? I really like the name you chose…
Your babies look so nice together!
When I read SOTW (V. I), to prep for the coming school year for my daughter I found myself getting drawn into the story and wanting to learn more, on an adult level this time. I picked up History of the Ancient World at the library (because I was intimidated by “real” ancient history) and was only a chapter into it when I decided I’d have to buy it because I love it. I really appreciate how accessible your writing style is. It has completely opened up ancient history for me and I can barely wait for History of the Medieval World to come out!!!
She looks so much like her big brother. I can’t wait to meet in person.
Beautiful! I was hoping to finish HoAW before it came out, but it’ll still be on my soon-to-purchase list.
Oh, it’s beautiful! I can’t wait to hold my own copy.
I just KNEW that your photos, “baby pictures, ” would be pictures of a book!
I think it must be a lot like having babies, publishing books…when you have a child and he reaches all the milestones, each step is so amazing. Then child #2 comes along and does the same things, and it’s still so amazing! You are pretty confident that child #2, or #3 or whatever will do the things they are supposed to…sit up, crawl, walk, say that first word. Each time, each kid, no matter how many, grows in the same way, does the same thing but it’s always special, wonderful, an accomplishment. Seeing your book move forward in all the various stages must be so satisfying, especially now! 🙂 The book really does look nice, and they look great together.
Those two looked so wonderful together I had to go and pre-order my own copy right now… unfortunately, its not due until May 🙁
Great looking books. I think the complete series will look amazing.
They look wonderful! Congratulations! Don’t those newborn books have the sweetest smell.
Congratulations! I can see the family resemblance. I’m so happy that I’ll be able to meet your second later in the year. It’s sibling looks a little lonely on my bookshelf (or side table at the moment), although it is surrounded with lots of cousins through another publisher:)
BTW I had to let you know that I had a conference day in my bed yesterday with my newly downloaded mp3’s from the WTM conference last year. I would have preferred going to the conference but listening in a comfy place is also a nice treat.
I was finally able to pick up a copy of your second volume today. Borders had that 40% off coupon. (Sorry, I’m an AP world history teacher from OKLAHOMA so I’ve got to use those Borders coupons whenever I can). I’ve got both your books listed on my website as a good supplement to the regular AP textbook. I really enjoyed your first volume, and I am excited about reading this one and your forthcoming volumes. I keep your books in my classroom so they are readily accessible.
