So, there's been one time in my life that I have been beyond eager to get the mail: when I received my LDS mission call to Taiwan. Now, I can add another epic I-can't-wait-to-get-the-mail moment: to open a box that holds a few paperback copies of my book, Félicité Found.
Here are some photos to document the long awaited and blessed moment:
Yes, I kissed the box!
Yippee! Squeal! Giggle!
So happy!
There you have it, folks. Sigh
So, don't forget that this splendid book will be available on Monday, August 12, 2013. (paperback and e-book), (e-book), and (paperback). I'm hosting a blog tour as well. Here's the peeps that are co-hosts and schedule:

Monday, August 12: Sara Bowers
Tuesday, August 13: Elise Fallson
Wednesday, August 14: Jolene Perry
Thursday, August 15: Nick Wilford
Friday, August 16: Rebekah Callor Grow

And what the heck, here's the blurb about my sweet book that you can find on Goodreads:

Seventeen-year-old Pierre Rousseaux witnesses a young girl take a near fatal plunge off Pont Neuf Bridge into the freezing water of the River Seine in Paris, France. After diving into the racing river himself, he is able to rescue her from a watery death, but only after her head is bashed into the river
wall. Upon reviving her from unconsciousness, Pierre realizes she doesn’t remember her past at all.

The girl struggles to recall anything from before she may have tried to commit suicide, not only once but possibly twice. The few glimpses into her life are discovered through dreams that can only suggest her past was horrific and jaded by intense anger.

Her memories may force her to lose everything she has grown to adore, especially the boy she loves more than anything in the world: Pierre.

The girl, Félicité Moreau, must decide if the life she desires is enough to make things from her past right. Pierre struggles to resolve if Félicité means enough to him that he will fight for her, regardless of her past and despite his own personal demons.

With a paranormal twist, Félicité Found is Julia King’s debut Young Adult novel—a horrific love story.

This is really happening and I'm thrilled in a I-want-to-throw-up kind of way. :/
