Every original piece of the book has been laid out and sent to the printer. *whew* This has been a hellish past 7 months. Naturally, it’s not over. I have about another 3 or days of proof correcting to do (which means one more trip to Middletown), but the hardest part is over. I have worked like a dog on this for way too long and I’ve been very unhappy that it’s eaten a good third of my summer too. I feel good though. I’m going home, where tonight in honor of this accomplishment I’m going to have a big strong drink…or six. Goodbye, Middletown! Hello, The City That Never Sleeps!
