August Update: Monster Art and Closing Touches!
Hello friends! (Or, as Joe Pesci said in Home Alone… “Hiya, paaaaaaaaal”).
How’s the weather where you are? Here in Georgia, it is hot and I am very, very pale. The bad news is I can’t be outside much during the summer. The good news is that we’ve had ample time and opportunity to work on the book, and it’s so tantalizingly close to done I can taste it. We’ve still got a bit of final art to come in and have to finish the VERY VERY EXCITING tasks of putting together a Table of Contents and Index, but all 110,000+ words are put in and formatted and all the art we could afford (with your wonderful generosity) has been placed and formatted.
“Wait a minute,” you say. “Your Kickstarter campaign said you’d deliver February 2019!”
There’s still a lot to do, including getting proofs from the publisher and all the other boring stuff you don’t want to hear about, but barring any catastrophe we’re planning to have all backer rewards out and the Book available for retail by the end of the year!
So that’s good news. We’ve busted our ass on this (and inDesign has in turn busted our ass), but if you’ll forgive me for being Southern…
Y’all? It’s lookin’ GOOD.
